Here's the story: I'm 28, I'm in pretty good shape, my BMI is 25.1, I eat healthy (salads, fruit several times a day, fibre cereal), I don't smoke, I rarely drink, I don't do street-drugs, but I do drink 1-2 coffees a day. The doctor gave me a clean physical, he said there's no diabetes, heart problem, or any physical reason he could see for it. Yet I still am having trouble with getting erections, maintaining erections, etc. I basically just want to have a normal sex life, but it hasn't happened yet. I've also stopped drinking soda entirely to see if that helps. Nope.
The only 4 things that I can think of:
-I am on a SSRI called Cipralex for my anxiety, which might be causing it. But I feel like I've had this problem even before the medication, so I feel like it might be contributing but isn't the cause per se.
-Maybe my testosterone levels are too low. I am thinking to ask the doctor if he can test these.
-Masturbation. I usually only masturbate once or twice a week, but I'm wondering if it is somehow killing my body's sex drive. I could stop entirely but then there are some "uncomfortable" side effects that happen if there isn't any "release".
-Somehow the veins in that area are damaged, or are not getting enough circulation. I am wondering about taking Ginko Biloba to try and increase blood flow, but the pharmacist said it might interact badly with my blood thinners.
As well, the doctor offered to get me some viagra samples to help me out, but the last time I saw him he didn't have any. I'm thinking of booking an appointment, bringing up these topics to see if he can help me find a solution.
