I am 67 years old. My prostate was removed in 1999, but I got semi-erections till 2005. Now, nothing, even with lots of attention. Anything I can do?


  • Michael Castleman says:

    It might be age-related. The older the man, the more likely he is to suffer erection problems. You’re 67. At your age, more than half of men experience erection difficulties.

    It might be drug-related. Have you started any new medication lately? If so, discuss your erection situation with the prescribing physician. Perhaps another drug might be substituted.

    It might be relationship-related. How are things in yours? Sometimes the penis detects relationship problem before the mind realizes them.

    It might be stress-related. Any family problems lately? Money woes? Chronic irritants in your life? The stress of major hassles can impair erection. And the cumulative stress of several minor hassles can, too.

    A sex therapist might also help you get to the bottom of this. To find one near you, visit the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists or the Society for Sex Therapy and Research.
