Prostatitis and poor erection

I am 41 and have battled with prostatitis since age 21. Each flare has been characterized with a nagging pain, dribbling after urinating, and most frustrating, erectile dysfunction. As I have gotten older these flares have gotten more frequent and lasting longer. I am frustrated and at the verge of depression. I want so badly to please my wife sexually but I cannot get erect enough to insert. The question I have is are there any herbal therapies or medications which help. Also is there anything that can help with the decreases libido? Thanks for responding!

Re: Prostatitis and poor erection

Here are some things you can try: Zinc should help shrink the prostate, essential fatty acids in the form of flaxseed oil, sunflower oil, and soy oil.

Serona repens, or saw palmetto in extract form relieves prostate irritation.

Limit the amount of your alcohol intake, especially beer. One of the hormones that contributes to prostate problems is increased by beer and other alcoholic drinks.

Make sure that when you urinate that you empty your bladder completely. If at all possible void whenever you feel the urge, do not hold it. Fully relax the muscles in the pelvic floor when urinating and keep them relaxed until you finish.

Zinc 60mg./day, Vitamin E 400mg/day, Saw palmetto 160mg twice a day
Flaxseed oil: 1 to 2 tblsps per day for several months
