I went to see a surgeon not a urologist, should i consult a urologist about this? The doctor also said it happend because of a uti.
Erectile dysfunction can develop due to a variety of causes. Psychological stress, performance anxiety, depression, neurogenic disorders peyronie's disease, body image issues, medications, alcohol, smoking, drugs/medications, hormonal imbalance, radiation therapy, kidney failure, metabolic disorders, multiple sclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, prostatitis, urethritis etc. just to name a few.
Infections such as epididymitis could lead to erectile dysfunction and the dysfunction may take some time to settle after the actual infection has healed. I would suggest giving it 2-4 week time before seeking medical consultation to evaluate for other possibilities. Also anxiety and stress play an important role in the development of erectile dysfunction and it might be a good idea to be a bit relaxed and working on the psychological factors with your partner and getting rid of factors like smoking/ alcohol/ drugs, if involved. If there does not seem to be any improvement in 2-4 weeks with the suggested changes; I would suggest consulting a primary care physician or a urologist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.
Thanks i hope it is because of stress and goes away i never had problem before, i did during the infection i couldnt get an errction and i was told its cause of stress which settled and atm i dont know if its stress or not. But if it is from the epididymitis would it go away and will i have normal erections? My symptoms occured late december and its march does ot need more time to heal?
