[Question #5362] Erection issues

21 months ago
I have good erection during the foreplay with my wife. On the half way I feel like urinating and after urinating, I feel like the erection is getting reduced and couldn't even push into her properly. We are trying for baby and this is lowering my confidence a lot. Please help.

Welcome to the Forum.  Our Forum is dedicated to sexually transmitted infections and I am not an expert in erectile dysfunctions.  I will make a few comments from the perspective of a general internist (which i am, as well as being an Infectious Diseases/STI expert).  there are many causes of erectile dysfunction - STIs and infections are NOT among them.  Some ED is age related, increasing in persons over 50 or 60, particularly if they are smokers.  Other causes include medications (have you started any new medications) and systemic illness such as diabetes.  In others, the problem can be anxiety.  My advice would be that, should this problem persist, speak with a general internist of a urologist.

Hope these comments are helpful.  EWH
