— I have read your post and observation of warmth in your right testicle. Would you prefer a summary response to your question, or would you prefer more back-and-forth, where there will be a series of more questions and more details clarified? There is no difference in charges for your preference. You can continue to ask questions and receive answers without additional charges.

Either way, the goal is for your satisfaction, and I’ll do my best to take the appropriate time to help you.

Excellent. Everything you're telling me is very reassuring... any idea what might be causing the lost erections? Does it feel physical? Is there any part of this which could be related to anxiety?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I'm not sure I love my wife want to have Sex
just doesn't want to cooperate! Now with this warm feeling it's got me worried
Expert:  Dr. Captain replied 8 months ago.

I certainly understand your worry - nobody wants to feel anything new or different in that body region. That being said, warmth without changes in the color of the skin, without swelling, and without pain or itching is something that is commonly temporary - and likely not something that will be lasting or worrisome.

Expert:  Dr. Captain replied 8 months ago.

The most common cause for difficulties with sustaining erections relate to a man's difficulty either with finding a place of mental relaxation, or being able to stay focused on excitement. Do you think either of these applies to your situation?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Focused is a problem
Expert:  Dr. Captain replied 8 months ago.

Hmm.. have you tried any techniques so far? Pornography, fantasy play with your partner?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
She's not into pornography is there any drugs that can help me
Expert:  Dr. Captain replied 8 months ago.

Certainly - Cialis and Viagra will help "force" your penis to be erect, but in your case, it's more likely that this will simply help give you the confidence to no longer need it. Kind of a like a temporary crutch, which helps you regain confidence to walk again

How do I get these
Expert:  Dr. Captain replied 8 months ago.

These are only available from a physician's prescription. is really intended to be a source of advice and counseling for patients, and although we are actual, real, licensed physicians who are helping, there is no system with this particular website for us to establish true patient/physician relationships. Because of this, we are not legally able to prescribe prescriptions for our patients on this site. Even though we can't prescribe meds here, I can certainly still refer you to websites where that is possible

Expert:  Dr. Captain replied 8 months ago.

would you like those websites?
