The Prostate and Erections

I had a urologist tell me that an enlarged prostate can have no effects whatsoever on erections. He said the only physical causes for erection problems is diabetis or cardiovascular problems. He made it quite clear that it's absurd to think an enlarged prostate can have an adverse effect on erections.


I've read the opposite of that from several online medical sources. Does anyone care to post what have heard or read in regards to enlarged prostates and erection problems?

Re: The Prostate and Erections

As we all age, the prostate become larger for all men - to various degrees. But that doesn't affect sexual function. I agee with PJ09 that the personal opinions expressed here by other posters is not a substitute for sound medical advice. Your doctor is correct.

Re: The Prostate and Erections

Prostatitis can cause PE, although it doesn't--nor does enlargement--affect erections in any appreciable way. There are, however, important nerves in the same region which can. If these are being impinged, there could be a problem related to that....best of luck...
