Sexual Dysfunction Treatment board


I keep reading that High Blood pressure can cause sexual problems. I use Cialis myself and I also have mild hypertension that is under control using DIOVAN. I asked my doctor if the high blood pressure was causing the ED ? I started having problems a few years ago before I was diagnosed with hypertension and I was using VIAGRA for a few years and I switched to CIALIS because it was more convenient to use---NO LIMIT ON EATING MEALS BEFORE USING IT and it also lasts longer. My doctor said the high blood pressure would not cause the ED problem. I always had erections at night time so does this mean it would not be a physical cause? Also why would high blood pressure have anything to do with it?
I must agree,

The literature is replete with cautions that BOTH hypertension and most of the drugs used to treat it can cause ED. That doctor apparently hasn't even cracked open a MAGAZINE in three decades.
Since ED is just now coming out of the closet, I think that ANY of the old saws about it (and hypertension) might best be viewed with a jaundiced eye.

First off, I think hypertension is an EFFECT of vascular disease rather than a cause. Since all our erectile plumbing is driven by the mechanics of plumbing and pressure it seems logical that vascular disease, perhaps even pre-diagnosable (if that's a word :D), is the likely cause of ED. I really think "curing" hypertension with drugs does NOTHING to alleviate the underlying condition and thus adding anti-hypertensives will ALWAYS make the ED situation worse or certainly not better...that seems borne out by most people's experiences.

Boy, am I ever counting on Cancer Dad's hypothesis about inflating the corpus cavernosus being in some way "curative"...heck it certainly is a nice treatment. :D
In that VEIN (ha ha) perhaps the inflating suction contraptions might be as helpful long term as cialis...they CERTAINLY do the inflating all right! (Never used one though...I'm always daunted by the staggering array and high prices)
