Customer Question
Hi my name is *****...
Hi my name is ***** ***** I'm 42 and having ED issues. Specifically, having a difficult time maintaining an erection or even obtaining one. I've been also having some rectal bleeding for the past 4 months and am being scheduled for a colonscopy. My question is does the bleeding from my rectal area have any connection to losing my erections?

No, the rectal bleeding should have nothing to do with your problems getting an erection. What medications are you on and what medical problem do you have? Have you had any surgery in the pelvis before?

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.

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.
