If any of you have Dr. that don't seem interested in your problems with your erections RAN to a Dr. that does. Some of the problems that can cause ED is mental, diet. smoking, HBP, diabetes, Rx meds, weight, and heart problems. Get checked out by someone that cares about you and your health.
You have to be VERY carefull taking over the counter drugs, supplements or anything else.. They may have a unfavorable reaction with any Rx drugs. Talk with your Dr or better yet your pharmacist first. I am not suppose to drink anything with grapefruit in it or even Tiyonal (sp. ?)
Don't be afraid, ashamed or embarrassed to ask questions. Usualy everyone that has one will be willing to tell you about it. I don't know where you live but one of the higher recomened Uros in the East is Dr. Milam at Vanderbilt, in Nashville, Tenn. If you can't go there try to find a Uro that does some where around 100 implants a year. One of the questions i I have seen from women is, "is it cold?" No. Another is can someone tell I have one if I go to the gym? There is a 99.9% chance they won't. (unless you walk around all day whith it up) As far as I'm concered I say so what if they know. I had something that broke so I got it fixed, simple as that. If you want to ask me any personal questions feel free to do so. You can use the above email to keep it private. Good luck
I also have diabetes and couldn't get an erection hard enough for pentration. I did the pills. pump and shots. They all worked for a little while and then quit. I finally got a penile implant and it's like I'm a teenager again, but I lost lenght BECAUSE of my choice of Uro. You have to get a good one, and if possable a Uro thats 's a male sexual function specialist. You can get more infromation and ask questions at penile implant at yahoo groups.

I also have ED that is caused by HBP, bypass surgery, Diabetes and the meds that I take for it. You said he has used Viagra so he must have already told the Dr. of his problem. There are thousands and thousand of us with the same thing so its nothing the Dr. hasn't heard before. If the pill doesn't work he will have you try a VED (vacuum erection device or pump) and then shots (they aren't as bad as you think) The next is the penile implant. That's what I got and its great, any time or any place and it will stay up 24/7 if you want to. Just be very carefull to get a skilled Uro to do the surgery. Ask a lot of questions and find one that does at least 50 or more a year. oliverView Thread
85 and still having sex GO MAN GO!!!!!!And thank you from all of us that are heading that way. "it" never gets old.. does it? As far of the Viagra no knows how it will work or the side effects untill you try it. Every one reacts different. For me Viagra didn't work very well and I had some of the side effects. The VED and shots didn't work very well either. I ended up with a 3 piece penile implant. If can get it DO IT. You can have an erection any time any place and 24/7 if you want. Itys great.

I hate to tell you this but there IS NO WAY IN HELL that you can make your penis larger. Period. Once the corpus cavenosum has stopped growing thats it. You have what you have and can't have any more. One thing you didn't say what your size is. In an adult the aveage penis lenght is 5.5" to 6.5" Sorry but we are all in the same boat. Oliver PS one member signing a lot of names can make it sound good. Most of the time his or her middle name is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$View Thread
Get a full exam. Ed can be caused by many thing mental or phycial, drugs (legal and/or ilegal) smoking, being over weight even heready. For me I had HBP for many years before starting to have problems with ED. I couldn't get very hard so we started using Vigra. That worked maybe 50% of the time at best. Next I had heart bypass and Vigra didn't help so we tried a VED. The rings are easy to get on but are painfull to wear and are pure hell to get off. You also can not keep the ring on more that 30 min. I went to short and I also found out I had Diabetes. Just a note on the shots. Giving your self a shot in the penis is not as bad as it sounds. It hurts about as bad as pulling a hair. The next option is a prosthesis. This can be a flexible rod, a 2 or 3 piece inflatable implant, with the 3 piece the most used by far. I have one and its GREAT. It can be used any time, any place and if you want keep it up 24/7. I was 60 when I had it done so that may be the route you may have to take. One thing get the best URO you can find if you do this. Get one that does at least 100 a year.If you want more infromation about implants you can email me at w26b265yahoo.com OlicerView Thread
Being so young it could be mental. I do not mean your nuts. But want can happen if you don't get an erection you start to worry that it will happen again. The more you worry the better chance there is that you won't get an erection. If you have morning erections the problem could be mental if not it could be physcal. A GOOD Uro will be able to tell. Don't be ashamed to ask him or her., They hear it all the time. By the way I had a female Uro for a while and she was easer to talk to than a male one. A lot of youg guys run into this problem. And yes there are many med that can cause this. Look up the meds and what are the side effects.View Thread
