Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

E.D./ Impotence -sexual problems

08/16/2007

Question:

I seem to have difficulty acheiving orgasm. I am pretty easily stimulated and aroused, and I definitely am interested. I can stay hard for an hour easily, but only rarely have a climax. I have tried masterbation, with visual stimulation, and even then it takes 30- 45 minutes, when it does happen. I am 60 years old, just slightly overweight (230 lbs at 6`4") and have always had a healthy sex life. I am talking drugs for cholestrol, and acid reflux could that be the cause ??

Answer:

This problem could be due to the drugs you are taking.  You should start by talking to the doctor who prescribed these drugs.  The next step would be to see a urologist.
