Unable to keep erection

I can get an erection but then I can't keep it. I really don’t want to go to the doctor to discuss with anyone as I'm too embarrassed, but I need to find a solution. Please help (Mike)

Re: Unable to keep erection

Dear Mike,

Thank you for your question.

Please note that ED is a very common medical issue in men. Many men find it embarrassing to talk about this matter. ED can have a significant mental impact on men and can affect their perception of manliness as it can affect their fertility and intimacy with their partner. While these conversations can be very uncomfortable, it is vital that you visit a specialist healthcare professional to address this matter. ED may be a sign of other underlying health issue such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, hormonal imbalances, therefore, being diagnosed at an early stage can be life changing and in some cases life saving.
