Patient :Hello , I'm married 32 yrs old & have 4 kids. I'm a very active sportsman & also run around 8k daily. Also I'm very active in sex & normally i have it almost daily. For the last few days I'm not able to maintain my erection. It never happened in my life. During sex i get erection & then it goes down or sometime i don't get erection. But I'm able to feel orgasm with stimulation from hand. My blood pressure is low these days around 110/70 or 100/70 which used to be 120/80. I'm feeling little lazy & lack of interest is for everything not just sex. I'm not feeling to go for sports like i used to. Everything is boring & slow these days. I never felt this way all my life. Before this problem started i used to feel pain in bottom of my legs & back pain. I don't think stress is the issue as life is same as it used to be. I was never like this.
I have no issue with my wife & im not worried after this problem as well but i just want to understand & solve it. What i should do to overcome it ? My food intake is excellent . Fruits , vegetables & meat everything is there in my diet. I don't have any other issue and also not using any drug or medicine. I don't drink alchohol & also dont smoke.
Please advise some treatmemt & also should i try yohimbe as one of my friend is very satisfied with it.
Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
The fact that your blood pressure has dropped and your body feels sluggish and lethargic most of the time, indicates a possibility of hypothyroidism which can be ruled out with a thyroid profile.
If deficiency then thyroxine supplementation can help. But considering that your lifestyle activities have not changed much, the most likely reason for occasional erectile dysfunction and maintenance issues could be distraction during sex or pre-occupancy with thoughts before or during performance of sex.
So try spending more time on foreplay before getting into the act of intercourse, this should help.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
Wishing you good health,
