can any std cause impotence

I have trouble maintaining a second erection because of a tingling sensation in the  bottom of my penis and have to urinate very frequently. Even after I urinate I still have the sensation to do so and I know the urination can be a symptom of a std, but what about the erection trouble?

No. And by second erection, do you mean a second erection shortly after coming? If so, that's normal, probably just a factor of age. There's a period of time after ejaculation, called the refractory period, where a guy is physically incapable of getting another erection. The length of time differs from guy to guy, but regardless will lengthen as you age. That second erection will take longer to get, probably needs more coaxing, and may not be as firm. You may also have trouble coming a second time. It's normal.

See a doctor to check out the issues you're having around urination.

for the last 3 days I been having trouble Getting it up,   I been using steroids for about a year, Thats the MAX.  Just a 5 blend testosterone, and DECCA Durabolin, and i did that correctly, I didnt over do any doses,   i took the month off to re-cooperate,  and when i went back on it This is when the problems came into play,  I have never had this kind of problem in my whole life, im 35.    what should i do,  I have No idea, i went and bought some Ginseng   as i read that GINKGO Biloba   was good to create a erection,  

Is it possible that maybe i can also become impotent from a STD?

No, but it might have something to do with the stuff you are putting into your body.

Steroids are known to cause impotence.

You should also get your prostate checked - that can cause impotence too.

I have to admit , i am scared, very scared,  its like a my man hood has been taken away, i even find that im crying, just because its so dramatic for me,
Blank

The crying could also be from the steroids - they can cause mood swings and dramatic emotions.

Its likely that you will get erections back if you stop the steroids, but the longer you wait, the more likely it is that you will have permanent damage.  Steroids can also shrink the size of your testicles.

Obviously, my advice is to stop the steroids.  You might try posting this in men's health as well, so you can get more advice.  This forum is for stds.

I went to that site there, mens health, people post, but nobody cares to help.....

have you heard of EPHEDRINE?   would that cause Impotence as well.  or is that ok,   it comes in only 8mg  and is sold is Fitness stores with protein powder and natural stuff

Hi there -

I found this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ephedrine#Adverse_effects

It doesn't mention impotence, but it mentions a heck of a lot of other side effects.  

I'm assuming you are doing this for bodybuilding, but is it necessary to take anything?  What about just doing it naturally?  None of these things used come without major side effects, and they can be dangerous.  Just because its sold legally, it doesn't mean its safe.  Even aspirin can have dangerous side effects for some people.

I'm sorry no one answered you on men's health.

Well, that one might have caused some problems, but they are all known to cause impotence.  

Did you tell your doctor you were using steroids?

I wantd help right, so the best way to get help is to come clean and tell the truth
Blank

Good, I was just checking.  Many people get embarrassed and won't tell the truth, and as you said, its the only way to get the best help.

I am ashamed of myself, yes,  But i know the truth needs to be told,  I have to go to a lab and get my blood checked,    :(

Good luck, and let us know.

I should add that if you are sharing needles for this, you should be checked for HIV, hepatitis B and C.

No No No,  NEVER would i share a needle..  I would inject this **** in my own private home, alone.    and use nothing but sterile needles.    But i know where your coming from and yes your right, NEVER, EVER share a needle.

As of today, i can say that my Erections have come back  (on It's own)  Just stopped the use of that Steroids,  and it came back in 3 weeks.  But i have to admit that wa s avery stressfull 3 weeks,   Thats a feeling i never wanna have again.

I'm Not saying steroids are Ok to take,  But if someone out there still decides to use them after reading all this,  I suggest staying away, and i mean FAR away From

*******DECCA DURABOLIAN****************

even better i suggest that you do a full internet check on all the side effects on whats ever you decide to use..

No, but alcohol sure can.  There's an old quote by Shakespeare that alcohol "provokes the desire, but takes away the performance."
