Good Evening, You may think I am stupid and you may laugh,

Customer Question

Good Evening, You may think I am stupid and you may laugh, but I have quite a serious problem.
I am a man who is reasonably healthy and does regular exercise, but I have Type 2 Diabetes which is well under control. I am on the usual daily medication, Metformin, Perinderpril, Amlodopine, & Invokana.
My problem is that I have a much younger Girlfriend who if everything works out wants us to have children, but your guessed it I suffer from Erectile Disfunction. I can get a slight erection, but not enough to penetrate my girlfriend properly.
Many years ago I had a versectomy, which I subsequently had reversed on one side and I have always been able to ejaculate manually.
I have tried the usual quick fixes like Cialis & Viagra, but while it helps very slightly it does not give me the required and necessary results and when I take this medication, after a few days I get quite strong Heart burn.
I am too embarrassed to discuss this with my GP as he is far from helpful and realise I am asking for the moon on a stick, but is there anything I can do or take that will help me with my pathetic situation.
I realise some of my problem is in my mind and I always feel that I need to perform and cannot always relax and take it in my stride.
I think I know what you will tell me but I need to know if there is anything else I can do that is not obvious
