still want to, but doesn't work

I think my problem might be common. I have sexual urges but the equipment doesn't rise to the occasion. I'm older and my wife isn't all that interested, but I was able to take care of my needs myself until last year. Now however I can't do that due to the impotence caused by MS,

I'm posting to see if anyone else has had this problem (the desire but not the ability. I will be going to see a urologist for urinary issues which have developed (leakage problem) and hope to bring this up also. I'm hoping viagra or cialis will be prescribed and work but would appreciate hearing from others who have dealt with this problem.

The solution I found

I have serious erection issues and had used Cialis 10mg, then 20mg, and then it just didn't work at all for me. I was seriously considering surgery until I discovered the tri-mix solution.
Its three drugs mixed together into a solution that you inject into the base of your penis. We are all used to needles by this point so itís not horrible, just unpleasant.
Gives me an erection for 2 hours (even after ejaculation) and a good orgasm. It's really nice now that I don't have to worry about losing my erection in the middle of sex like what always happened with Cialis.
Your urologist knows about it since itís been around for longer than Viagra but youíre going to have to specifically ask since itís not a FDA drug approved for this usage and so heís not paid to tell you about.

That's why I always carry popsicle sticks and electricle tape.

First off, I know, I know this is the guys room. When I saw the topic I had to pipe in. This has been an issue in my household for 10 years. Here it is from a female's point of view.

My husband suffered a spinal injury 16 years ago. It was somewhat degenerative until several (over a dozen) surgeries stabilized his spine.

We have been married for 20 years and we are one of those lucky couples that have stayed in love. So his ED didn't bother me a lot. It would be nice, but it was obviously not his fault. It bothered him a lot. He asked the doctor about it every time he went in.

He tried everything. Some didn't do what they promised, some were not safe with his high blood pressure and some were so weird it was hard to "get in the mood".

He had a pain pump implanted recently and things have started to "come around". Thought its still a work in progress. He also takes testosterone injections which seem to help (he had a reaction to the patch).

So what's the purpose of my post? First contrary to what those experts say - your relationship won't die without sex. Secondly, spending quality time with your significant other is more valuable than sex. Third, the less you stress about it the better the results may be. (a watched pot doesn't boil)

My husband didn't want to even touch me because he felt he didn't have the follow through. It doesn't matter. Long term relationships aren't built on great sex. The best thing my husband did was discuss this honestly with me. I know that wasn't easy for him and I really appreciated him.

I hope that this covers some of the things you are worried about. I know you didn't ask for relationship advice, but I figure for guys relationships and sex go hand in hand.

My urologist always asks if I wake up with an erection. I guess that it means that the tools are working. Ask for Viagra. It works for me. I tried cialis but the back pain was unbearable. If he prescribes the 100 ml pill then you may be able to cut it in half and save money.Good Luck!!

I'm a young man of 35 and have been married for 10 years. I was just diagnosed with MS 2 weeks ago. I've been seeing a urologist for low-T and impotence. It is more of a "mental" issue for me and my manhood than it is an issue for my wife.

I have tried Cialis and Viagra. I like Viagra better, but both drugs give me a stuffy nose and I can't breath.

My wife and I purchased a penis pump and a constriction (****) ring from a local sex shop. It works great! I don't get as stiff as I do with the drugs, but I am able to perform without the tension of not pleasing my wife.

I did talk to my urologist before purchasing the penis pump. He was the one who actually suggested the constriction ring to help keep the erection. If visiting a sex shop is too embarassing for you, you can order online.

i am pleased about these morning erections both from an ms stand-point(progression) and sexual one .. i've never tried any ED meds because of my previous ON symptoms(fear doing possible damage to my vision) .. being single i'm in an impossible spot though - at my best i'm lucky to get/stay erect for a minute before i climax so what to do

No feelings on the equipment

I just cant keep an erection because I have no feeling there at all. I am 56 an have PPMS and knew that something was wrong there for about 5 years now but when I was diagnosed last year that explained it.

LGW2, You aren't alone there. I'm 52 and am in exactly the same position. Diagnosed 17 years ago and for the last 7 years have had no feeling there at all. The erection starts but then just dies on the vine.

Unhappy WOW

I must say tri-mix does pack a punch when you use it. It was great for me. The pills are not as good as when i first started to use them. To 1755620237@facebook its easy for you to say when your in your 30's still. And you want it more and your wife as well. Then its hard to adjust for her. Maybe time will help. But when your young its hard to keep your relationship together with out sex like you use to have. It's hard hearing the complaints and the anger for it all. It's hard on us at times. You use to just look at your sexy wife and say.....Dang I can't wait to..... Now it can only stay within your head until you take a shot or pill. it's different and hard.
