This is Dr. David
what erection problems have you had?
I cannot seem to get it up as much as I use to
are you still using saw palmetto?
no i have stopped since the last time we spoke
do you have excessive anxiety and worry symptoms?
about this yes
excessive anxiety can cause you to have less erections.
i use to wake up in the morning with a erection but dont anymore?
I have read that you have erections in night while you are asleep
and that if you do not get erections penile tissue can become less elastic and shrink the penis
Dr.David you still there?
yes, I am here.
are you on medications for your anxiety symptoms?
most likely your excessive anxiety state is affecting your regular erections at night time and taking away morning erections.
is it true what i said
that without erections your penis shrinks
no, your penis will not disappear and shrink away with no erections.
you are letting your anxiety here get out of control with worry.
but i read that without erections penile tissue can become less elastic and shrink the penis
so i am very worried i do not want my penis to shrink
the more you worry, the less erections you will have.
you need to get some treatment for your anxiety symptoms.
So you do not agree that your penis can shrink with no erections
it will shrink slightly, but but will not continue to shrink forever.
so even with a full erection it would be smaller
no, it won't be smaller if you have erections again.
what im trying to say is due to the lack of erections over time your penis will shrink so that when you do get a full erection it will be smaller due to not having regular erections?
no, that is not the case.
so when fully erect it will always be the same size
so what did you mean by shrink slightly?
so what about the penile tissue becoming less elastic and shrink the penis due to no erections
whats that about
that should not happen at your age.
so it is possible
if you stop having erections for months and years at a time and if you started to develop lower testosterone levels and higher estrogen levels, this can affect your penis length
months or years
at a time
months and years at a time without erections.
i dont understand sorry
if you don't have erections for years at a time, this could eventually affect the size of your penis while erect.
if you don't have an erection for 3 years and then you start having erections, your penis will be slightly smaller than before.
slightly smaller is how much
that varies from person to person.
most likely just slightly.
a few millimeters.
is that less than a centimeter
'without regular erections, penile tissue can become less elastic and shrink, making the penis 1-2 centimeters shorter'
this is the source
thsi the the correct site
this is the correct site
1-2 centimeters shorter?
this is concerning
do you agree with this statement
no, I don't agree with this statement.
I did take cocaine and viagra a couple days ago because I was depressed
"But some men are physically unable to get erections, such as those who've suffered trauma to the nerves involved or who have nerve or blood vessel damage caused by diabetes."
is the line before.
that is what they are refering to.
you should not be doing cocaine and viagra
I know i was depressed about not getting a erection
what do you advise and what is your opinion
have i got a problem
or is it just anxiety
what do you think Dr. David
you should get treatment for your anxiety and depression.
you should stop doing cocaine.
you will continue to worry until you get your anxiety symptoms under control.
you need to stop looking up this stuff online which worsens your anxiety.
I have stopped I was just depressed at the time
you need to talk to your doctors about medications like sertraline or paroxitine to help decrease your anxiety and depression.
would cocaine and viagra stop me getting erections
and is it ok for me to admit taking drugs on here
will ig et into trouble
will i get into trouble
you won't get into trouble.
I won't tell.
but legally will i not get into trouble
you don't get into trouble legally.
but drugs are ill legal
so will i not get into trouble by admitting that i done drugs
will i get into trouble for admitting i done drugs
no, you will not get into trouble about drugs.
but you should not continue to do drugs.
I will not.
You mentioned saw palmetto
you used saw palmetto before.
would that have done anything
taking saw palmetto
not long term
what do you mean
it will not affect penis size long term
what would it have done?
but you did ask
just wondered why
because you took it before.
Ok but did you ask because that could cause erection problems
if you took it for a long time, but you have stopped taking it.
