I would prefer massage as I'm home and everyone is at home
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
want to keep it private

No problem. So it is not pathological not to get an erection every time. Stress, tiredness, anxiety, over sexual activity can all cause this. You should just allow a few days without sexual activity and then see what happens

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Can this be caused due to smoking?

If you just started then possibly otherwise I doubt it

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
my testicles kinda hurts

If you are at risk of an STI then you should get checked, otherwise allow a few days and see how you go but I wouldn’t be worroed

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I have consulted another doctor online and he prescribed me tablet 'sildenafil '
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Is it good to use?
You can do but for just two days it seems unnecessary

I would say just be patient

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Okay thanks for your help

That is my pleasure, I am sure this will resolve soon but with testicular ache ensure you have no sexual health infections.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
It's not like an unbearable ache as such

Okay

If you are not at risk, then don’t worry

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
How many days do you think it will take for things to get back to normal

I would suggest a few days without any sexual contact and things will likely settle

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Alright thanks for your help...it was a pleasure...

Well all the best with this, I certainly hope it settles soon

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
hope nothing serious.... I'm too young for this

I wouldn’t have questioned anything serious
