Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erection Problem

03/09/2007

Question:

I am a boy at 15 years old and I`ve smoked 2 cigarettes. One day I come home and couldn`t get erection. I`m very very very scared that it will stay. Will it pass and be over if I stop smoking or will it stay for life?

Answer:

I am not clear about your age. If you are a teenager, then you should begin treatment with your primary care provider (PCP) and perhaps a urologist. If you are over 40, can go directly to the urologist.
