Your mind can do very funny things when stressed and worried and the last thing you want to do is jump into something if you don't have to.
Its way too easy to convince yourself there is something wrong just because you have done something you believe contributed to it. "Correlation doesn't imply causation".
Make sure you try every avenue possible before the implant. Try more cardio. Test for testosterone. Get bloods done to check vitamin deficiencies. Are you depressed (do you need medication for this). Eat healthy. Fuck alcohol right off and any drugs.
All of these can contribute to ED. If after all of this you still have problems, an implant is a very good last resort....many argue better than pills of which i happen to agree with.
Solid advise. My dick looks good and actually gets quite hard in the standing position. Laying down and masterbating though.. things are abnormal it is not getting firm enough. Test levels checked last week and are good. Still have the surgery set and two doppler’s. Been pretty depressed last 6 months though hard to imagine it could effect me to this degree. Two dopplers set soon hopefully I can get this situation behind me.
That's exactly what happened to me, although I was always a bit this way. Standing and missionary erections were always hard but sitting was impossible and lying down I basically had to kegel constantly to maintain an erection.
Its unfortunately still the case now with the implant. Standing and missionary I get decent bloodflow but lying down definitely feels different. All comes down to bloodflow.
Mate as far as the depression goes, ED effects a guy the most. I've had Cancer and a Spinal Injury and all the Doctors involved say male patients always ask the same question first "Will my dick still work?". You can't defeat 10s of thousands of years of evolution. At the end of the day, that's what we're made to do.
An implant will change this though if that's what's required. Wish I hadve done mine 2 years earlier.
