problems w/ erection

My husband has been having trouble maintaining an erection for about six months now. It is really eating at his self esteam and he has expreesed interest in going to the doctor. What type of dr. should he go to. Will a family dr be ok or should he see a specialist? If a specialist is necessary which kind? What kinds of test should he expect or ask for? I dont want a doctor who is just going to put him on Viagra or some other wonder drug. We want to find out what the underlying problem is. Thanks for any info.<p>[This message has been edited by Bev01 (edited 06-23-2001).]

Re: problems w/ erection

Family doctor is a good place to start....he or she can help rule other things out, and then refer him to a secialist. Sometimes erection problems can be caused from plain old stress....So really, you can start at home, and start a list of everything that is bothering or stressing him out, and work on those things....Good luck to you and hubby...

Re: problems w/ erection

Many different things lead to erection problems. If things were fine until 6 months ago then it seems it is something recent that has started to effect the situation. One thing that is important to know is that our head is very powerful, unfortunately once we have an erection problem.....we begin trying too hard and actually creating more problems. I'd start with the regular family doc to rule out anything physical, if there is something going on he/she will probably refer to a urologist for further assessment. If they don't find something then we'll be here to support and encourage you both around stress and other matters that can get in the way! Good luck!
