Do you get absolutely no erection whatsoever?

And did this just suddenly happen?

correct

Well it's very unusual for ED to hit this suddenly--usually it slowly develops over months

At this point you should first go to your PCP for an exam and blood work to check your testosterone levels

If those are low, you'd need testosterone replacement

Otherwise Viagra or Cialis would help with your problem for now

Please let me know f you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
