How to Explain ED to Your Friends...

This one-sentence sums it up pretty well.

"To summarize the pathogenesis of ED after RP, neurapraxia induced by unilateral or bilateral CN injury, hypoxia, oxidative stress, and consequent structural changes in the penis are key factors."

Let me know if you're interested in the entire article. :-)

Would appreciate the reference, yes.

Quite technical. Yet helps in my quest for a PhD in ED. Enjoy!

Appears on skimming there is a 1:20 risk of Peyronie's Disease association. Glad to share this with my Men's Health urologist who says there is no association. And share this with a guy in my support group who stopped TriMix because of scarring.

I also developed PD after using TryMix. Your urologist is in denial....

What seems to be not clear is whether this is an association or is a causal relationship. That does not matter to the man with the bend in his stem, of course. But is could be coincidental as it seems in the Korean review that part of the healing process without rehab is scarring which could lead to bending. Coincidence is not necessarily causality. Do not know if my urologist is in denial or just in ignorance. If you don't want to know, you don't ask--if you don't ask, you don't know.

Thank you.

Nice to have a little levity among all the sadness over erectile loss. Thank you.

I tell my friends it's a matter of hydraulics and not masculinity.

Limp weinie!!!!
