I have a problem with my erections. I do get erections normally, but the problem is i tend to get " leak away". with out any stimulation i leak away and loose my erections. does this happen to any one> is it a problem. I feel terrible. help.
It's more common than you think. Taking some Viagra will increase the blood pressure to the extent that it will also help "clamp" the veins off better.
Try some Viagra, it's NOTHING to be embarassed about. If you tell your doctor about this and ASK for a trial of Viagra, or a prescription, he'll give it to you.
He/she probably hears the same thing at least a few times every day. If the Dr. is a Urologist, he hears it all day, every day, and probably takes some Viagra himself if he's an older guy.
Guys, even if you consider it mild, or it doesn't happen every time, don't worry about it. Just get some assistance, and you'll be glad you took a small step to make your life just that much better.
Also, FYI, there are two new drugs expected out this year. They are both in the same family as Viagra, but they act quicker, allowing greater spontaneity (within 15-20 minutes after swallowing the pill).
They are less suseptable to what you ate in terms of acting quickly, have less side effects (all of which are very minor. Some facial flushing, stuffy nose, mild headaches.), and the drug lasts longer in your system.
The one coming out real soon, I think the next few months, is called Cialis. It can be good for over 24 hours. That's not to say that you will have an erection for that long, as you must be sexually aroused for any of them to work, but it will be "available" to you.
With the conditions you've described, guys, go get some minor assistance for god's sake. Just do it.
I MEAN IT DAMN IT.
Thanks for the information. Hope viagra helps! My problem is not getting erections. I do get erections as soon as i think about sex and also kissing wifery. it stays hard for few minutes but starts leaking away ! i dont know how many of you guys face this problems or how many women have experienced it with their b/f or Hubbies.......but is is very embarrasing . hope Viagra helps !
Newbe, congrats on the willingness to see a minor problem for what it is, and to get some minor assistance. This will help you, and I don't even suspect that you'll even have to take to much of it. (it comes in 100, 50, and 25 milligram pills) I can see you doing just fine with the 25's.
All Viagra does (I'll give the basic version) is causes an increase in NO (nitric oxide- not nitrous oxide like the densits gives you). The NO causes a step to occur that leads to additional relaxation of smooth muscles and a dilation of blood vessels. The result is more blood entering the penis.
If you have a venous leak, or veno-occlusive issue that is making the erection go away, then the increase in blood into the penis from Viagra will help in that it will increase the differential pressure between your penile arteries and the veins in your penis. The end result is that the slight venous leak that you are experiencing will be offset by increasing penile arterial pressure. Problem solved. You will no longer have these issues (they are only problems if you don't seek treatment, hence my use of the term issue)
For kicks, and to probably be a bit redundant, I'll give an example of what's going on in your penis.
If you have a small leak in your car tire, and say you had an onboard air compressor permanently attached to the valve stem on your tire. The air compressor puts out 35 psi per minute of air maximum (that's the max pressure the air compressor can put out), and with no leak, the pressure inside the tire remains at 35 psi. Now, if you have a small leak in the tire, even though you are putting into the tire the required 35 psi per minute, the pressure will still drop in the tire due to the leak. This can happen quick if the nail was large, or more slowly if the nail is smaller.
Viagra is like having a small leak in your tire, but instead of leaking 2 psi per minute out of your tire every minute you drive, the onboard air compressor gives you 2 psi more than the air pressure specification calls for (due to the Viagra boost). It is constantly giving 37 psi per minute into the tire, and this compensates for the 2 psi per minute loss. Thus, there's no net pressure loss.
In fact the Viagra can give you a net pressure gain. Additionally, if your leak is due to a veno-occlusive issue (where the valves in the veins leading out of the penis fail to close properly (not causing enough resistance to outflow), the Viagra can force the valves to close. It has been suspected that continued use of Viagra may even make the veno-occlusive problem better over time.
foosh just interested have you read or heard anything about the following:
Would it be possible that not using a penis for say 6 months and no night time erections at that time as a result of hypogondism or high prolactin causes a venouse leakage . Then when the penis gets used again the venouse leakage gets fixed again very slowly over the years?
Maybe that is what happened to me.
I haven't heard of that before. I don't think that 6 months of "down time" would cause a venous leak.
But, perhaps the penis needed some time to get back into high gear (just like working out to the point of benching 300 lbs, then not working out at all for 6 months. It's bound to take awhile for you to regain what you may have lost in terms of peak functioning.)
Did you have hypogonadism? If so, how are you being treated? What about the prolactin? How did you get that under control?
Did you have a pituitary tumor?
Let me know, as I may be able to shed some pretty good light, if I know more details.
foosh , as you might remember from another topic I had hypogandism 10 years ago as a result of a rapid loss of weight and I was seriously underweight for 4- 6 months .I was never treated for hypog. because I was not really aware that I had it. I only found out what hypogondism is 2 years ago when I spoke to a doctor and pretty much figured out I had it.
Basically if your libido is gone you don't even realise until you try to have sex. I thought my lower libido was as a result of growing up. It kept getting better each year so before each relationship I thought now it is actually pretty close to normal . Also I thought maybe I was not with the right partner. Then I met Miss Right and started dating her. The first night that we had sex it did not work . I saw a doctor the next day. I never saw her again on a date.
As far as my prolactin level goes. I first tested it 2 years ago and it was 23 ( range 2:18). Taking dostinex decreased it to 6 . Parlodel works just as well.I am now of any medication for a quick test to see if I still need it. At first Parlodel (bromocryptine) really made me feel like 18 again. I have heard the same from other people. Too bad the effect wears of after a while. I guess you can keep increasing the dosage - but I think that is messing around with your brain too much and not worth the risk. You got to stop sometime and then what? Will it still work without?
I am still curious about what causes parlodel to work 'better than advertised' . None of the doctors are actually aware of it and they think I am just imagining it . You can't imagine 3 orgasms with full erections in 1h and you still want more - and that when you were suffering from some ED before!
I have also tried a tee from the bark of yohimbe tree . It too works but you can't sleep for 48 hours afterwards and that is hell- I will never do that again! So Viagra is still your best bet right now.
I too have a problem with "leak away" but I am not going to try Viagra just yet due to the side effects.....so I kinda have been looking into some kinda herbal remedy.
Here are some of the things Ive found.....
The majority of all cases of sexual dysfunction are linked directly to physical health, including something as simple as poor circulation. Without adequate blood flow to and from the penis, it is impossible to achieve an erection. Luckily, certain time-tested herbs can help improve circulation to erectile tissue and promote healthy male performance. Primary herbs are:
Ginkgo Biloba - is clinically proven to increase circulation to all parts of the body. And circulation is the key to performance. Oriental (Panax) ginseng - supports physical stamina and has long been used to support male sexual health.
Damiana's use as an aphrodisiac date back to the ancient Mayans. Nowadays, damiana continues to be used for its properties as a sexual stimulant. Damiana has been called one of the most popular and safest of all plants claimed to have an aphrodisiac effect. It also has one of the strongest reputations (for several hundred years) for building enhanced sexual activity.
Gotu kola is an herb which improves blood flow to organs. It builds mental stamina and increases alertness. The gotu kola plant was used extensively in India to improve memory and longevity.
Hawthorn berries have a strong effect on dilating the blood vessels, lowering the resistance to blood flow. They have an anabolic, or building effect, on metabolic processes, leading to decreased demands for oxygen and energy. Unlike Viagra, which increases the need for oxygen, hawthorn berries have an oxygen-saving effect on the heart tissue under stress.
The effect of the herb yohimbe on erectile dysfunction is attributed to a dilation of blood vessels in the sexual organs, and also to increased reflex excitability in the spinal cord. It has been shown in several double-blind clinical trials to improve erectile dysfunction, whether physical or psychological, being successful in up to 43% of cases. Yohimbine, while responsible for most of the pharmacological action of yohimbe, is also responsible for most of the side effects when used as an extract or in large concentration. Yohimbe's characteristics as an herb can be optimized by using small amounts of the herb together with other synergistic, energy-producing herbs which maximize the herb's potential.
Stress can take its toll on your body's energy and endurance levels. However, centuries-old herbs can help keep your body balanced for extra mental stamina and energy. Panax ginseng can help your body cope with the effects of stress and help you maintain your stamina. Ginseng is an adaptogen, meaning that dependent on your need, it can have either a mood enhancing or calming effect - to help your body return to a normal state.
Other herbs with a calming effect include kava kava, valerian, and St. John's Wort.
