I am new and need help desperately

Hi i am 38 and having ED for around 15 years now. I remember i faild to get erection very first time but things got back to normal for few years and then things got worse. When i was about 25 i found that i was never able to get erection anymore so I visited an urologist. He had a look at my penis and said there is nothing wrong with it and suggested that the problem is psychological. He prescribed 3 vigra pills to regain my confidence. The pills worked amazingly so i got kinda dependent on them and as vigra is sold over the counter in my country i kept buying them and using them. I was too deluded into believing that i can live with vigra for ever. Pills worked very well for 5-6 years then they started losing their effect. The rate was 1 out of 20 probably and gradually increased to 50% success. Then i visited a GP and explained my problem he didnt take the issue seriously and after doing some blood test he said my problem is not physiological and he changed viagra to cilias which didnt work at all so i again returned to viagra. Recently none of these potency pills work anymore. There are also a couple of other problems have been devloped over past few years, first is delayed ejaculation which i cant ejaculate during the intercourse to the point that i lose my erection and i have to do it manually and the other problem which is recently i have is even when i masturbate i ejaculate without a proper erection and my penis is either semi-hard or completely soft.

I am very frustrated and kinda scared. I dont have wife and girlfriend at the moment. Two girls i was dating stopped seeing me because of my erectile problem and i dont dare approach any other girl becuase i know it would happen again and i will be left embarrassed and insulted.

Please give me some advice/suggestion

Thanks

  • After double nerve sparing surgery I was told I'd be impotent the rest of my life. Last year I went for penile implant surgery. One of the best decisions I've made. My wife and I wrote a book about our experiences titled Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Erectile Dysfunction and Penile Implants-End Your Silence, Sadness, Suffering, and Shame.

  • Thanks for your response. Actually i think penile implant is the last solution. Since i have not tried any alternative treatments i would hope some of other treatment options could be effective.

  • Thank you for writing the book. I'm going to buy a copy. I'm 10 1/2 years post radiation and Lupron with a PSA holding at 0.1.

  • Farira,

    Sounds like your doctor is rather typical - not well trained in ED and perhaps uncomfortable dealing with sexual issues. However, ....

    Many urology clinics will have a doctor who specializes in ED and sexual function. One of them should be able to help you sort out the physical and psychological causes that may affect you. Typically those specialists are found only in larger practices in big cities or in "center of excellence" cancer centers that deal primarily with prostate cancer. Often you will need a referral from your regular doctor to see them. If you give us your location perhaps someone in this group can give you a recommendation of where to seek help.

  • Thanks for your response Berkshirebear. I live in Melbourne Australia.
