I had some erectile problems for a while. Then I got divorced, met someone who treats me like a human, lost a bunch of weight, and I've got the boner of a 13 year old that just discovered his parents get the Playboy channel.

I wonder, sometimes, how many of these pills could be avoided by focusing on mental and physical health.

Safe and affordable medicines for the poor? fark that. We have to make sure 70 year olds can keep it up all night.

Pretty much. Funny how all that "unnatural" and "violates god's plan" goes out the window when it comes to helping over-weight men with bad blood-pressure get a chubby. It has, admittedly, been awhile since I read the Bible, but I don't recall the Gospels, the Epistles, or Deuteronomy ever discussing the sacredness of erections.

Health is a big part of it. Erectile dysfunction in most older males is a result of poor cardiovascular health. Your penis is essentially a meat-based blood-balloon, after all. If the pump is too weak or the channel clogged, then there won't be enough pressure to inflate the bladder. Simple hydraulics.

Two totally different problems. Contraceptives for women equates to condoms for men. This equates somewhat to fertility treatments for women.

I've heard only about 10% of health insurance plans cover ED. Anyone got a site for the real number?

That's a false analogy as the two items are fundamentally different. That said, my health insurance (like many others) covers contraception but doesn't cover erectile dysfunction.

Where's the money in that?!?!

Getting people to eat right, get exercise, get sleep, and manage their stress takes time, effort, and perseverance. This is America. We don't have time to make lifestyle changes! We want pills backed up by $cientific evidence!

Can't overlook hormonal or neurochemical problems. I've had problems with ED and adhedonia (literally, no happy ending) since I was 18. Turns out my testosterone is really low.

Initial treatment consisted over over a dozen antidepressants that didn't help the depression or T levels at all. Eventually the doctors were like fark it and just started giving me small amounts of steroids to help with the levels and depression. Three months in and I've felt no change in either. I have a checkup this week to do another blood draw and I am pretty pessimistic about it. Either T levels will be "right" or at least closer to right, or it's going to be where it's been at or lower since anabolics decrease your own production, especially important when you consider dosings are only administered monthly. If it's low I can at least get an up in dosage and maybe get on either Welbutrin or ADHD drugs for the adhedonia, as well as likely curing the depression as well.

I'm only 24, look 16, and feel old and worn out. I'm almost to the end of my rope putting up with this crap. It really opens my eyes to the sad state of American medicine when I can't get better quality care without going to another friggin country. I'm seriously considering moving to Canada for a while to get the help I need.

And what really chaps me the most is that something is known to be wrong because cholesterol is used to make hormones. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that my low T and ridiculously high cholesterol (>350) are related. It bothers me a lot because typical treatment of anabolics is not going to help my cholesterol, as opposed to figuring out the root problem. If anything it's only going to push my cholesterol even higher as my body stops taking the cholesterol I do have and making testosterone on it's own.

/Rant off.

I hate being all Fark diagnosis and questioning a legitimate medical diagnosis, but did your doctor put you on a heavy weight lifting regimen to help naturally correct your hormones?

What's your daily routine like? You can feel free to email me from my profile, a few years ago when I turned thirty I turned all DOD style obsessed with mathematically optimizing my workout routines because it was driving me absolutely crazy how much information that was floating around that conflicted with basic common sense. I lost about 70 lbs down until I still felt and looked like crap, had people telling me I was anorexic, and still felt fat and ugly. About that time I started really diving into all the research I could find about body types, and what supporting evidence there was, even interviewing my dad extremely specifically about the way he's observed fat being laid out in his anatomy labs (he runs the PA program at a nearby school).

I'm actually becoming more and more convinced that a large portion of MANY, MANY people's chronic health problems is a basic lack of understanding of what the body SHOULD look like. I've seen weight lifters proudly displaying pictures of their absolutely atrociously unbalanced bodies, I've seen people complaining about chronic "fat deposits" that don't actually exist if you adjust your posture, and I resolved to quit talking about it until I've got the full range of evidence to shut people up.

I'm starting to really strongly believe that, while not discounting that there are very very real psychological and physical problems out there, the MAJORITY of the modern world believes it's fat while secretly struggling with crippling weakness. There's a whole industry that's entirely built around exploiting that secret side effect: Most average Americans really can look dramatically thinner in 8 weeks by building muscle and rehydrating, even if their weight on the scale goes UP. We're literally starving ourselves fat in this country with our spastic inconsistent eating. We fast to unreasonable amounts losing both muscle and fat, and then due to pain, injury, and fatigue from starvation, we fail out, binge, and gradually drift our fat back up to the original amount, never working to replace the muscle we lost. Then we feel fatter, look worse, and repeat over and over.

I'd really, really, recommend you take a hard look at what you're eating, the amounts, and how much physical activity you get. You may be able to FORCE your system to reset and force your body to produce testosterone through muscle work. Of course it won't work flawlessly if you have a physical injury to your endocrine system preventing hormone regulation, but that's not the way to bet unless you have a really good reason from one of those doctors to say you do.

Health is a big part of it. Erectile dysfunction in most older males is a result of poor cardiovascular health. Your penis is essentially a meat-based blood-balloon, after all. If the pump is too weak or the channel clogged, then there won't be enough pressure to inflate the bladder. Simple hydraulics.
