    Talk to you urologist about your erection problem. A low dose of ed meds will probably do the trick. I started having ed issues at 62. I couldn't stay hard in some positions. I took a small dose of Levitra and it solved the problem. I take 3000 mg of horny goat weed twice a day. If I took it at 62 it probably would have worked great. I don't like ed meds because of the waiting to be effective.

    You could try a cock ring? They help hold the blood in. Therefore, they help to maintain an erection.

    Good luck!!!
