Customer Question
surgery for testicular torsion. I...
I am a 23 year old male and about four years ago I had surgery for testicular torsion. I have never been able to ejaculate from receiving oral sex and lately I am having trouble staying erect during sex long enough to reach orgasm. Could you please tell me if this could be related to my past genital problem or is it something else?

This is not likely to be due to the testicular torsion.

Testicular torsion can cause loss of testicular function as a comlication, but if you recieved appropriate surgical intervention, this would not have occurred. Even with loss of testiclar function, loss of a single testicle would not impair sexual function at all.

Erectile Dysfunction can be due to a number of causes.

Medicines: Certain medicines can cause ED.

Lumbar disc lesion: ED can be the first sign of a lumbar disc lesion.

Neuropathy: ED can also be caused due to neuropathy caused by diseases like diabetes.

Cardiovascular diseases: disesases affecting blood flow can also cause this.

Hormonal disorders: Low testosterone.

Alcoholism and substance abuse.

Psychological: Psychological causes of ED are the commonest cause.

Hence all cases of ED should be seen to by a doctor. It can be the first sign of an illness.

There are a number of treatment options for ED.

Since psychological causes are the most common, counselling, behavioral therapy, etc. are the best treatment for this. You should consult a sexual counsellor for this.

One of the best drugs for erectile dysfunction is Sildenafil (Viagra). Alternatives to Sildenafil are Tadalafil (Cialis) and Vardenafil (Levitra). You should ask your doctor for a prescription for these drugs and try them out, they are quite likely to work out for you.

There are many other methods available for a full sexual experience.

Prostaglandin E

Testosterone hormone therapy.

Penile injections

Urethral applications

Vaccum devices

Vascular surgery

Penile implants.

You should approach a urologist and get yourself checked up. You should discuss all of these with your doctor. There are so many methods available, one will surely work for you.

I have been taking a herbal supplement called procerin which is for hair regrowth. The site and information about it both claim that it does not cause ED however, I know that other hair regrowth treatments can. I began taking it 6 months ago and the problems began as far as I could tell at that time, except the oral sex issue. The ED problems have gotten worse as I have gotten further into the medication and this sixth month has been the worst of all. Could this possibly be the cause?
Doctor: Dr. P. Jyoti, Consultant MD replied 9 years ago
this may possibly be the cause.

Many medications are known to cause ED.

You should stop this medication.

Very likely you will have a normal sexual function after stopping this.

Thank you! I am still curious about the oral sex problem though. This has been a problm for me from the first time I received oral sex, which is way before I began the procerin, and I have never been able to reach an orgasm even with my previous girlfriend. My current girlfriend of 2 years has had one previous boyfriend and never had a problem making him orgasm. Is there anything else that could be causing this?
Doctor: Dr. P. Jyoti, Consultant MD replied 9 years ago
No, this is not a separate problem but a part of ED. The same causes and treatments apply for this as well.
