Erectile dysfunction
arthurian posted:
Hopeless romantic. But my relationship has been troubled by an erectile dysfunction condition related to hypertension. Ever since my prescription for hydrochlorothiazide was given my libido is gone. Can medication side effects be permanent or irreversible? My lifestyle has been affected and I am looking for any advice through this discussion panel.

Erectile disfunction (E.D.) is different than loss of libido. Libido is the desire to have sex, while E.D. is difficulty or the inability to have an erection -- even if the guy has a strong sex drive (libido).

I have E.D. that has been "corrected" with an inflatable penile implant (after trying other solutions). My libido, however, has never diminished since pubery, and I am 62! (lol)
