Doctor Consultation Says My Erectile Dysfunction is Not Physiological, Will Viagra Help?

Viagra Question

I’m a happily married man who’s always enjoyed sex with my wife, but lately, I’ve found it difficult to get an erection when romance is in the air. I’ve consulted my doctor about the problem, and he says that my impotence doesn’t appear to be physiological in nature. How can he determine this and would Viagra help me?


Answer

The information you’ve supplied doesn’t really give us enough to go on. However, a doctor can order labs and prescribe self-testing to help determine whether erection problems are physiological in origin. He might also be able to make a tentative diagnosis of the cause of your erectile dysfunction on the basis of information you have confided to him. For example, a normal healthy male has three to five erections each night as he sleeps, the last of which may occur as he awakens in the morning.

If you continue to experience these nighttime erections, your ED symptoms are probably not physiological in nature but can be traced to psychological causes. We suggest that you ask your doctor how he reached his conclusion on the cause of your erection problems. If he has determined that depression, anxiety, or stress is the root cause of your problem, he might refer you to psychological counselling in an effort to deal with those problems.
