Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 10 months ago.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

What do you think the reason your wife does not like having sex with you.

Do you use injection / penile shots for the erection?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
a shot
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 10 months ago.

Are your erections strong enough?

What was the reason of quadriplegia; injury?

Did you discuss this with your wife?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
n she has said in the past it lasts for ever. Which she seemed to enjoy. I wrecked a motorcycle on the blue ridge parkway little over 4 yrs ago. I have tried to discuss multiple times. Last answer I got was she's tired all the time yet she volunteers for extra curricular activities all the time . She is the secretary for the youth sports and stay @ my oldest practice the whole time which my younger son tags along. What I get from him is he does pretty much whatever he wants. HE'S 5 YRS OLD. He also played but was combined with another school and only practiced 1day a week which she asked her mom to take him with out talking to me. It's been over a year. She's also volunteered to coach basketball this season...

I am not sure, but this can be psychological for her. There is saying that sex is in the mind. If you have same strong erections, there is no reason for her to not like, to have sex, as past. Do you think she has low libido? Or do you suspect some other reason?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I honestly don't know what to think, I don't believe she has low libido. My honest opinion is it's me.
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 10 months ago.

You will have to talk to your wife frankly. It is very important to find the reason as that is the way to initiate the treatment or do measures. If your erections are not as firm as before, you may need to change the dose of penile shots. You may also consider penile pump surgery.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
