Penis Problems

Erectile Dysfunction

This is the new term for not being able to maintain a good hard on. A recent study in the USA reported that 52% of men aged between 40 and 70 have some degree of trouble with their erections. Although it happens more often as men get older, it is not necessarily a consequence of healthy aging. That means it is not inevitable!!

What can cause it?

It may be due to:

– Surgery

– Trauma

– Medication (e.g. sleeping tablets)

– An ongoing disease like diabetes

– Anxiety, depression or stress

– Smoking and alcohol use

– Vascular or hormonal problems

If you get a hard on in the morning or through masturbation, but cannot get one with your partner, then it most likely caused by stress or a psychological reason. Find more info at

What can you do?

You should see a doctor (usually called a urologist), who deals with these sorts of problems for routine blood tests, and advice on how to stop smoking or reduce your alcohol intake if needed. Then you will need to look at all the options available.

– Drugs like Viagra or testosterone

– Vacuum devices

– Penile injections – these are very commonly used and involves the man self-injecting before intercourse

How does Viagra work?

It relaxes the blood vessels in your penis and allows more blood to get into your penis when you are sexually excited, so your erection is better.

Who should not take Viagra?

– Anyone taking nitrate medicine for angina

– Those with sickle cell anemia, stomach ulcers, bleeding disorders, leukemia, severe heart or liver disease

– Anyone who has had a recent stroke or heart attack

– Certain inherited eye disorders

How do you take Viagra?

Your GP prescribes the correct dose, and you take the tablet one hour before sexual activity (you should not take more than one tablet daily). It will only give you an erection if you are sexually stimulated. It may take longer to work if you have a heavy meal, and alcohol can still affect an erection if taken at the same time.

What are the main side effects of Viagra?

The most common are a headache and facial flushing. It is also possible to get some indigestion, dizziness, stuffy nose, muscle aches, and abnormal visual effects. You should not drive or operate machinery after you take Viagra. If your erection lasts for more than 4 hours, you should see your doctor ASAP as this rare effect could damage your penis.

Penis Size

Many men worry about the size of their penis, and the anxiety related to this can be very great. The average length of a penis is 3-4 inches when flaccid, and 5-7 inches when erect.

The average duration of a female vagina is 4 inches long, and it has been found in studies that the size of the penis has no bearing on the amount of satisfaction in the woman. Orgasm in a woman is not related to the size of the penis but the degree of stimulation to the clitoris. The clitoris is a small pea-like bump that sits at the 12 o’clock position as you look at the vagina (in between the pubic hair and the vaginal opening).
