Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

With an erection problem consulting a doctor preferably a urologist is highly recommended. Erectile dysfunction should not be considered a normal part of the aging process, hence the causative factor for this symptom has to looked for, and this could be due to psychological, vascular, neurologic, or hormonal malfunctions. The incidence of ED is often higher among men with hypertension. Another significant risk factor in the development of ED is smoking. Psychological causes of ED include depression, anger, and stress-related causes.

Normal penile erection requires full functioning of the vascular, nervous, and hormonal systems, and erectile dysfunction can therefore be due to psychological, vascular, neurologic, or hormonal malfunctions. Morning erections is a good sign that the physiology is normal. Hence I would suggest that you consult a urologist if your doctor is not investigating the cause, and have yourself examined and get the investigations which your doctor thinks to be relevant done.

Just treating it with medications is not the solution.

Take care.
