What a Great Experience this group has become. The kinship in Brotherhood. There is such a diverse range of topics. This is the place we can be as open as we want to be... Everyone is welcome to join, but it is not a place to Cruise. It's for sharing sexual questions and comments among men.
My husband has a hurrniated disc at L4/L5 spinal level. He has been having issues with getting a full errection. He acheives a semi errection and is able to ejaculate, but much more quickly than he has in the past. He is only 37 years old, so I do not think age is a factor, but what I want to know is could his back be causing the issue? Should I have him visit a urologist or go back to the spinal surgeon? He is embarassed about it and doesn't want to say anything to the doctor and thinks it will just get better. what should we do? I love my husband and if we couldn't have intercourse again I will still stay with him, but I miss our sex life.
Spinal injuries can cause erectile dysfunction. Dysfunction doesn't always mean total limp noodle. If he has back/spinal problems, he needs to see his doctor and discuss the secondary effects it has on his life. If your husband loves you, then even if he's embarrassed or nervous, he needs to talk to his doctor. Let your family doctor guide you to which specialist to see. I know I want to make sure I have long lasting good wood for my partner. Any decision about surgery or treatment should be discussed with both of you. It will effect both of you.
Yes, spinal injuries may eventually cause ED but both of you should never lose hope. Most doctors might recommend drugs such as vardenafil (more information here: http://www.hablalosinmiedo.com/vardenafil-hcl-20mg-treatment-for-impotence.html ) as a solution to ED. However he needs to check the doctor first to ensure that he is safe to take ED pills. If he truly loves you and woould want your sexual life to remain active then he should be able to overcome his embarassment and never hesitate to try out some treatments to conquer the symptoms.
