I;m 75 and not ready to stop sexual activity. Cialis and viagra work to a degree but not 100%. Have been on testosteron ,1cc pr. wk.for last 2yrs. to no avail. My prostate is inlarged but flow not restricted to any large degree. Prescribed meds took away my sex drive. Off of those meds and libido is better. Any health store stuff that might help?

    Have kinda the same problem.  I'm only 62 and some days are better then others.  Had the Urolift done 3 years ago because I was not giving up anything.  Been on testosterone gel for years.  Don't have it with me right now I'm out of town but I wake up with morning wood everyday I have High Blood Pressure and Diabetes.  My doctor want me to try the shots ( In the penis ) but it is not covered by insurance and it's $35 a shot.  I will try it but have not had a chance.  Don't give up.  Have fun as long as you can.  Ken

    Cialis/Viagra don't do anything for Libido, just erections. What meds took away your sex drive?

      Libido is the ability to get aroused. Erection is the ability to get hard. People who use Cialis/Viagra successfully still get aroused but can't get a decent erection. If you have no interest, can't get aroused, those drugs won't help you. If you can get aroused but not sufficiently erect, the drugs often help.

      Sexuality is complicated, not often discussed and originates between the ears as much as it does between the legs.

      Therapy might help you here. Think about it - whatever physiology allows you to get a short term erection probably doesn't change midway and should allow it to continue. As I said, so much of sexuality is mental. If you don't have circulatory issues, diabetes, alcohol problems or something else that is known to impact sexuality, your problem could be at least partly psychological

      Research shows that 90% of erection problems are physiological, NOT psychological. The psychological cause stories go back before Freud, but are not based on any scientific research. Erections are very complex involving nerves, blood vessels, and muscles, all of which can be changed by age, medication such as many blood pressure meds, and diseases such as diabetes, all of which are more likely as we age. Get a penile implant. It solves all those problems.
