Customer Question

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?
