Doctor: Hi welcome to Ask The Doctor,Most men have erection problems every now and then. This is normal. These problems can occur at any age. But they are more common in older men, who often have other health problems. Treatment can help both older and younger men. Erection problems can have many causes.These include:Physical problems, such as injury to nerves or loss of blood supply to the penis. Other health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, and depression. Side effects of certain medicines. Stress. Drinking too much alcohol or smoking. Surgery, such as for prostate cancer. Doctors usually start the treatment with lifestyle changes and medicines. They usually don’t advise surgery or other treatments unless those first steps don’t help.Treatment can include:Avoiding tobacco and drugs and limiting alcohol. Talking about the issue with your partner, doing sensual exercises, and getting counseling. Finding and then stopping medicines that may be causing the problem. In some cases, you can take a different medicine that doesn’t cause erection problems.Hope this helps you.
