Marital health issue

Hello doctor,

I am a 43 year old male with a normal health. Until recently I had a normal marital life. In last couple of years I had few instances of erectile dysfunction but it corrected on its own. Lately I have been facing this issue consistently and this is causing lot of mental stress. I started to take damiagra drops ifor two days and then came across this forum. I can see that you've advised quite a few persons for similar problem and look forward to advice from you. Please advice if my problem can be cured and if I will be able to attain normal erections. Hoping to get an early response.

It can be helped. There is a long questionnaire that you have to fill with detailed replies.

When was the last time you got a complete physical & blood work done.

I got complete medical checkup done in 2012 and all the parameters were found to be within range with exception of fasting sugar and bad cholesterol which were found to be on the borderline. I don't remember the exact counts anymore.

What is your fasting sugar level and BP.

Last test was done about 3 months back. Fasting sugar level 95 mg/dl and BP Was normal.

I try to bike for about 100 Kim's every week and to light weights 2-3 times a week. But sometimes miss my exercise due to travel.

Libido is fine and infact my wife feels it has increased with age. ED is the only issue.

How did you libido & ED respond to that treatment.

There was no impact on my libido or ED during that treatment.

If your remedy is in the form of pills:
One dose is one pill.
Dissolve the pill under the tongue.

Use the same mixture for subsequent doses, if required.
Don’t refrigerate the mixture. Put it anywhere covered, away from direct sunlight.

Thanks fitness,

I'll get this medicine tomorrow and take the first dose tomorrow night. Just to clarify, the second dose to be taken next morning will be taken empty stomach or after eating something.

How should I observe Worsening of symptoms? Do I need to test myself for arousal?

Regarding my bike, it's a mountain bike. Saddle discomfort is a very usual complaint by bikers. I'll discontinue riding for sometime to see if that helps.
 
Rocky rocky 6 years ago
You are welcome.

2nd dose can be taken anyways you like, before or after. Ensure a break of at least 10 min before or after meal and the remedy.

Don't expect overnight results, its not magic.

The arousal will not require testing, it will be evident by itself in due course!
