This is my first post here since searching the net for help.
I'm bordering on depression and feel like I've hit rock bottom. I just don't know what to do!
First, a bit about me:
I'm 31, very fit, gym 3-5 times a week, eat well and my weight is good.
Over the last month or so I've really battled to achieve and maintain an erection. I had this problem about 5 years ago and it seemed to go away. When I do achieve an erection, most times its weak, around 65-70% making penetration pretty much impossible. My girl friend is very supportive but to be honest, the problem is starting cause tension for us.
What I've done so far:
1. Visited my doctor. I had blood tests done, they all came back fine suggesting the problem is physcological.
2. I've used Levitra 10mg pills. Ok, these pills are bloody amazing. I become ROCK hard and can go all night! I suppose this is a good thing but in the back of my mind a little demon is asking me why I need this pill! The thing is, I don't want to be dependent on a pill for sex!
I think about this problem all day and every day which I know is not helping. But how do I get it out of my head?
Just last night my girlf friend and I tried to have sex. We started kisisng and touching.....now thats usually when a person gets aroused right? Wrong! For me, I could feel nothing below the waist, not a drop of blood going through to the penis. Why?? I remember a time when just looking at some woman I grew hard. Now, nothing seems to work.
I can get an erection through masturbation although a lot of the time the erection is weak :mad:
I'm thinking of having a full body check up as I'm convinced there is something wrong with me. I was almost praying the blood tests would reveal something.
Just wondering if anyone out there can give me some advice. I'm not far off being completely desperate. I love my girl friend very much and am very sexually attracted to her. Problem is, I cannot rise to the ocassion when we have sex, unless I've taken a pill. My doctor told me it WILL go away and that I should just keep taking the pills to keep my confidence up until it goes.
Does anyone know what other tests besides blood tests can be done and where you would go? I'm based in London, UK. I'm thinking a physical check up including the prostate (can the prostate cause ED??)
Would appreciate any help.
