Can't maintain an erection

I'm 66 years old. I have been on viagra for about 7 years. I started with 25mg now I'm up to 100mg. The problem I've been having in the last several months is that I can't maintain an erection with the 100mg tablets. I can stay fairly hard as long as my wife keeps jacking me or I jack myself but once the jacking stops I lose what erection I have. Before I go to a doctor I thought I would see what I can find out. Does the fact that I have a very large penis have anything to do with my impotence problem? Years ago a doctor suggested that I might have some problems because of my size.

Erections are a strong indicator of health.  Get a checkup to make sure your blood sugar is okay, thyroid, all that.  Normally I would suggest the supplement L-arginine, but because it also works on the vascular side of the problem, like Viagra, I'm not sure if it's safe.  Ask your doc.  There are other supplements also that do have benefits.  Just not sure about mixing them with other meds.  Make sure you are exercising a lot.  lots of walking and lift weights safely.  It will rev up your testosterone, as would the L-argimine.

The results from my yearly physical are normal. I work out three times a week and I don't take any drugs other than Viagra. What sort of tests do doctors perform for impotence?

Hi Alan, it could be that you have just been on the big V to long and need a break from it, and our size has nothing to do with it, look below I'm adding my way out of ED its all herbs and a hormon, but once you start it, it needs to become a way of life for a good sex life, and me I'm a year behind you, what you will read os a post I put on another web site, its titaled HERBS VERUS DRUGS, HERBS MY WAY OUT, you can google that if you lose whats below.
Good Luck

What is below is a reply I put in to a discussion on side effects to ED drugs.
So if he drugs don’t work or work well but with bad side effects, then go the herbal way, and it works, but you need to go the whole way with them and give them a good try, but remember these things take up to 8 weeks to get to full power, so you need to be on an 12 week trial, but just like drugs its a mix and match affair to find the right mix.
Now for me, I'm in ED recovery and if like me you can get the mix right it will also give you a healthier life style thrown in as a side effect, so that cant be bad, can it.
OK for me, I was given Viagra here in Greece when a was told all that I had was anxiety, its great when your told that, without any examination, and then given Viagra without any tests of any kind, all this I found out later of line, and after this decided that I then needed to find my own way out of ED if I could, the one thing if you start looking is DHEA comes up a lot of the time, so did research into it and asked on a couple of forums for info, for or against.
So I'm now on DHEA 75mgs a day, this is something you really need to read up about if you think its for you and start low to see how it sits with you,
I now take Tribulus, this now backs up my DHEA, I'm now taken Tribulus 2 x 750mgs a day, its a bit like DHEA gives your testosterone and libido a boost, but with no side effects, not that I've had any from DHEA, these I take for 5 days then rest for 2.
DHEA can have some funny side effects with the odd person, so just do some research on it before taken it.
Garlic, I also take Garlic chopped up fine with olive oil and parsley, and do a whole head at a time.
Cayenne, I also take Cayenne, this I put into tomato paste and mix it smooth with olive oil to a heat that suits you, but after a couple of weeks you may find its needs to be increased, both of these I rotate alternate days then change them round the next week and only take for 5 days then 2 days rest, These you need to wash down with water before meals.
Ginger, I also have Ginger in lemon and honey tea (black or green), I fine grate Ginger from the freezer. grate to the size of a large egg put in cup with lemon and micro wave30 secs then add your tea, tastes great,( on pegym they call this erection tea ) Green tea is also a help with ED.
Green tea, I now make up a 2 pint pot with 4 tea bags and add some herbal Tribulus, I use Bulgarian which I can get here in Greece, its best to let this steep overnight and just keep it that way as I use it the next day.
I read that honey and lemon is good for the blood.
Cayenne, Ginger and Garlic are all known herbs for cleaning the blood and given heat down below they all help open the veins up, and to help get blood into the penis, and believe me you will fill this some time later.
On pegym they have what they call the 5Gs it’s all herbal and well worth a look at, just Google the 5Gs, it will take you straight there.
There are lots of other things you can try, Borax see earthclinic for this under ED, Glycine, Nutmeg, but watch this one they say it could be a mind bender, D-Apartate at 3 grams, Ginseng, Gingko Biloba, Vitamin B ( I take Brewers yeast as it’s a complex of all bs) and zinc, but the list is endless.
There does not seem to be many side effects to most herbs, I did get some high blood pressure from Viagra, but now since being on mostly herbs I feel and get some real good erections, and the morning woods are good, I even get woken in the night with some real boners and never had that before.
Look I do hope this may help with some of you guys out there who think that the doctor is the only place to get help, I do some answering on medhelp and webmd the doctor on webmd does not like me given people advice on herbs, but he forgets that all modern drugs come from herbs in the first place, and a lot of new drugs have there roots in herbs, and druggists are still researching roots, herbs and flowers to find new drugs.
A Warning.
One last thing to anybody using low dose aspirin, you must give these up if you take either Ginger or Ginko Biloba, as these two thin your blood.
Good Luck We Need IT
Tail End
Lots of the above can be Googled by just adding ED on the end of them.
Cayenne can give lots of support to the prostate, also by mixing things with olive oil boosts your omega intake, and by taken 2 table spoonfuls of olive oil a day gives you even a bigger boost of omega, and a big help with your joints.
My DHEA I take 50 mgs first thing in the morning, this I got from a web site on dosage of DHEA, this is because the body’s own DHEA is at its highest then, and so what we take can help boost it.
Yes and don’t forget your vitamin D, just get yourself out in the sun and you can pack your body with it, its free that way, they say you only need 15 minutes a day to get enough of it , me I’m out in it all day long here in Greece, and most of the time naked.
And the last thing I got my wife a c**k ring for Xmas, it’s a Hardwear Ice made of glass and works really well, once you get used to wearing it, and can give you some fantastic boners that are really strong.
if interested just google hardwear ice.

That's a lot to digest. Pardon the pun. I actually have a big stainless steel cockring. I've been wearing it for 10 years. That was the first thing I bought when I started having trouble getting it up. I will look into those herbs. I haven't had night erections or morning wood in years. I tried the stamp test a couple of times and I failed. The other thing I have noticed in recent years is the volume and force of my ***. It just barely makes it up the shaft and oozes out. Also there is no force behind it. I don't know what that is all about.

Hi Alan there is a simle exercise for that problem you have, we have a muscle taht controle or urine to stop it mid flow, I always know as a pc muscle, it does a lot of work, in it pumps bloodinto our p***s's, it helps with ejeculation.
So the exercise is called a Kegel, if you sit with your thighs level,and have trousers and pants off, and just happen to have a half had on then try this, see if you can lift it a little by squeezing the same muscle that you would use to stop your urine, now if that works and you moved you p***s then you have just done your first kegel, so to start you now need to try and do that 10 times, take a break for a couple of minutes, then do it again, and once more by 10 each time, and if its working, then do it morning and evening, once you get in the swing, you can incress the amount your doing and if your doing well then after 3 weeks you should be up to doing 3x50 twice daily, and if its worked you should now shooting your load again without any problem, and the bonus is the it will help with your erections to become harder, but after a few days you should also be able to do them anywear, but now keep your cloths on.
Good Luck

I will try the excercise and get back to you. Was your impotence stress related or physical?

Hi Alan, No I got mine after 3 weeks of very bad night sweats, my wife looked it up after she said she was not getting any sex lately, I said sorry but had not noticed it, but she found that night sweats was a precurser for ED, and as they say the rest is now history.
But now after losing weight, cutting out alcohol, but only till things come back to normal or as best, but now lead a very good life style just by cutting out things and fighting to hold my weight down, things are as they say rosey.
One thing, is I dont think I will ever be over it, I think it just falls us into thinking that, but I will keep fighting it all the way.
Good Luck with the exercises, but they do work, and you will fill it, just like being a young man again.
