I can't get an erection, can you help?

Yes we can. We will take your full history and work with you for the best treatment. Almost all erectile dysfunction is treatable. Our personal percentage success is 97 per cent.

I have diabetes and have lost the ability to have an erection. Are they related?

Yes, diabetes is a common cause of erectile dysfunction (Ed). We have a great success rate of treating diabetic ED.

I have had a heart attack in the past. Can l use treatment for Erectile Dysfunction?

Yes, if you are fit enough for the physical exercise of sexual activity. Your GP or Cardiologist can tell you this or we can, after getting your history from you. Can you walk 100meters without puffing or chest pain?

You cannot take the Cialis, Viagra or Levitra tablets if you are on Glyceryl Tri Nitrate medication (GTN or nitro-glycerine) whether its spray or tablets. They can lower your blood pressure to the point of death!

Do not be tempted by “cures” advertised on the internet. Many contain supplements and drugs that can cause further heart damage and even death.

All other medical treatments are safe for you if you are fit enough to mow the lawn or walk to the bus stop!

I am a young man. I can get erections but when I try and make love they fade away or aren’t strong. Can you help?

Yes of course. What you describe is very common and reasonably easy to treat often without any intervention with medication.

I am 78 yrs old. Am l too old?

NO! Basically if you are still interested in sex you can be treated…Go for it!

I am very overweight. Can this be a cause of losing my erections?

Yes. We are seeing more and more men with weight issues who are losing erections. We can still help you and sexual activity can be good exercise but if you ignore your weight problem the erectile issues will get worse and treatments may not be successful in years to come.

Your risks for diabetes, heart disease, blood pressure etc. are increased dramatically if you are very overweight. They are also reduced almost immediately when you achieve a good weight so it’s worth doing!

Are morning erections important? Mine seem to have stopped. I am 45 yrs. old.

Morning erections are a bit of a misnomer. A healthy man usually has about 5-10 erections through the night. When we wake up and want to urinate we often have one then and associate it with a full bladder. It is just a coincidence really and is not associated with a full bladder.

The erections are important as they flush out the penis which has a poor blood supply when soft. It is part of the general health of the penis.

IMPORTANTLY loss of morning erections can be an early sign of blood vessel disease so you should see your GP and discuss it with him or her. They will usually send you off for Cardiac Screening as this symptom can indicate heart issues (Coronary Artery Disease). Again we can organise this if you prefer for any reason. Don’t ignore it!

Can l talk to you about my particular problem without seeing you in the clinic?

Yes, l am happy to talk with you or if you prefer you can email me. Either works for me. If you prefer to call, tell Debi and l will call you back. Often this may be out of hours if the day has been busy.

I am 45 years old and had radical prostatectomy 3 months ago, when will my urine incontinence stop and erections return?

Continence should return within a few weeks. The importance of your pelvic floor exercises cannot be over emphasised. Some men unfortunately may need further procedures if they remain incontinent post op. for a long period. However chronic incontinence is rare.

Erectile dysfunction will always occur.

Sometimes it is brief and sometimes it can take up to 2 years. it depends on your age, general health and the strength of you pre operation erections. it also depends on the skill of your surgeon (remember, robotic surgery is new). Whatever happens, aggressive penile rehabilitation will increase your chances of recovery and even in some cases a cure if your nerve damage is minimal.
