    No, but give the inflammation time to die down.

    Yes, PAE can cause RE, but it could be temporary. It depends on your luck. I had it 6 month after PAE, but it didn't influence strength of my orgasms. It went away 6 months after PAE. It is very individual. It probably depends how the necrosis of the prostate develops after ischemia and infarction caused PAE. In most patients of PAE (from what I have read on this site and some scattered data from review papers) erection is the same or better, and most men can last longer in sexual act. I experience the same effect, but erection strength didn't change. RE can happen for many reasons: super-large prostate from BPH, alpha-blockers, TURP, etc. There are no specific reasons for RE after PAE , because the procedure is not specific for any part of the prostate. I hope, I answered your questions.

    Hi Drummer, how are your BPH symptoms with the PAE? Hasn't it only been 1 week or less? Give it some time!

    There was NO CHANCE I was testing whether or not I had RE after 1 week. I had extreme pain for 3-4 days after procedure, and 1 week I was just settling down. I tried first ejaculation after 3 weeks and I had blood in semen, but not RE. Going on 5 weeks now and still a little blood, but moving back to normal.

    Drummer, I wish you all the best!

    On my first day home, I complained to my Doc of the unbearable pain and discomfort. He replied that it was a good sign that PAE is doing its job! I Hope the opposite is not true for you.

    My Doc did a full pelvic CT scan BEFORE agreeing to do the procedure. I assume to qualify me as a good candidate. He said I was a good candidate and said I had very little plaque and went ahead with the procedure. I don't know about plaque or about being a good candidate, all I know is that in my case the PAE has been LIFE CHANGING!

    Here is my experience:
