Erectile Dysfunction

Torn frenulum

The frenulum is an elastic band of tissue under the head of the penis. As for the blood when masturbating, I would see a doctor. That does not sound like a normal occurance of masterbation. Also if it keeps happening you could develop an infection or some other issue. I hope this helps and good luck. BB  (Feb 27, 2009 | post #3)

Erectile Dysfunction

venous leak

External vacuum system. While you feel this is too embarrassing or intimidating, recognize that this is a very safe and effective way of controlling the venous leak problem without surgery and providing a reasonably good result for most patients. Potential partners worth keeping will not reject this type of a remedy. Combination therapy where we use Viagra plus MUSE or the injection together with a tension ring borrowed from the vacuum devices. This uses blood flow enhancers to generate the increased blood flow necessary for the erection together with the tension ring that substitutes for the missing venous control. A bit expensive, but may be worth a try. Finally, when all the above are unsuccessful, an implant is a viable alternative. While it's true they may not last forever, nothing does. If they break or need replacement, so what? In the meantime, you'll have a functional erection unit which is what you don't have now. The risks of surgery are exactly as you mentioned, but there are risks to everything from driving to crossing the street. Modern implants typically last 10 years or longer. Besides, the only alternative is to live without this normal part of life. I hope this helps. BB  (Feb 27, 2009 | post #2)

Genital Herpes

Genital Herpes May be Reversed with Natural Medicine

OK these all natural treatments might be great, but there is NO cure for herpes. That is just the way it is and when you finally come to accept this you'll be a lot better off. Having a realistic out look out life and your condition will help you to treat your disease and move on. Valtrex is an oral daily therapy prescribed for genital herpes, cold sores or shingles. It doesn't cure herpes, but reduces the number of outbreaks and may lower the risk of passing on the virus. I hope this helps. BB http://www.edrugst  (Feb 27, 2009 | post #1)

Genital Herpes

Reconciling couple now share herpes . . . why?

It is very possible, that you gave it to her. Herpes can be passed back and forth and no one knows until an outbreak. I have had it and just found out through a blood test done because my wife has it. Also I have never had an outbreak or any symptoms. I hope this helps and I would be supportive of your wife especially if your trying to get back together. You are both in the same boat and supporting each other is the best thing to do.

Genital Herpes

how likely is it that i have genital herpes

Most people infected with HSV-2 are not aware of their infection, some people may never have an out break. But this disease is very contagious and if your girl friend has it, there is a good chance that you have it too. The only way to know for sure is to have a blood test done. I hope this helps and good luck. BB  (Feb 27, 2009 | post #2)

Genital Herpes

Can you give herpes to your kids?

I am going to answer my own question since no one else wants to take a guess. The answer is NO, you can only transmit the herpes virus through sexual contact or exchange of body fluids. BB  (Feb 27, 2009 | post #3)

Genital Herpes

Please help...

I would get tested again, if I were you. You could have another std or something else, maybe an allergic reaction to lube, latex or something like that. I hope this helps and good luck. BB  (Feb 27, 2009 | post #3)

Erectile Dysfunction

ED & prescribed medicine

When a man can't get an erection to have sex or can't keep an erection long enough to finish having sex, it's called erectile dysfunction or impotence. Erectile dysfunction can occur at any age, but it is more common in men older than 65. As far as the prescribed medicine, Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra are the 3 ED meds on the market today. I hope this helps. BB  (Feb 27, 2009 | post #3)

Genital Herpes

Can you give herpes to your kids?

If you have had herpes for 10 years, could your wife also have it and could she have passed it to your kids without knowing, through blood, vagina, etc..?  (Feb 16, 2009 | post #1)


5 Things You Must Know About Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Here's my opinion, tell your kids to use protection no matter what! If you don't then don't be surprised when they have contracted something terrible. And even if you do they still might not listen. How about showing them pictures of STD's that's pretty gross, it would have scared the crap out of me as a kid. BB  (Feb 16, 2009 | post #4)

Erectile Dysfunction

A few questions

If you feel like it's a medical problem then yes I would see a doctor, they can help you and see if there's any underlying issues as well. Sounds like you are very active and fairly healthy, also young so seeking a medical opinion would be the next step in finding out if you may be suffering form ED. I hope this helps and good luck.
