Hi doctor,

I am a 47 year old male. Recently, I started experiencing erectile dysfunction, that is, I am unable to hold my erection. It is as if I am losing interest midway. I do not have diabetes or any other illness. I am a non-vegetarian, and I chew tobacco. I am married and have two kids. What should I do?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You have no history of diabetes and hypertension, so no need to worry. Tobacco could be one aggravating factor for your problem and try to reduce the chewing of tobacco.
  • For erectile dysfunction, you can try supplements like L-Arginine and Yohimbine. A lot of brands are there. Consult your doctor, and then use it regularly, you will see improvement in about a month.
  • If that does not help, the drugs like Sildenafil or Tadalafil can be used. Both of these drugs can be used when needed, an hour before sex and will help to result in a strong erection.

Thanks. Take care.
