Cannot get erection while standing

Postby Hope77 » Mon Oct 21, 2019 8:52 am

I have had this issue for sometime. I once had a venous thrombosis after attempting sex without erection.

I did a doppler while laying and the report suggests no venous leak. But the problem is I can get erection while laying down normally, does that not make the doppler useless? Since it was done while laying down?

What is a better approach to diagnose my leak please?

Also will I stop getting erection while laying down? I mean will this get worst?

Thanks

If I'm understanding (your post seems ambiguous), you can get an erection standing up but laying down you go flaccid. Me too except any effort ,even standing up, I go flat. After the various boner pills stopped working I tried injections . When that failed my Uro didn't even want to bother with a Doppler test and advised me I'm a candidate for implant because it sounded like the classic sign of venous leak. So I can't really diagnose you but that's my story.

I have heard of many cases like yours. They can get an erection in one position but not another.
I assume this is venous leak. I still haven't heard a thorough description of what venous leak is, there seems to be little consensus.
I guess all that matters are the consequences this has for your life and the treatment option available.

I do remember reading numerous posts around the web just like yours, however.
Venous leakage (Cavernosum and glans). 31yrs. In the process of getting an implant. Nervous but accepting it has to be done. Love Franktalk.

Got it. I have heard that they inject a PDE-1 into the willy to get an erection then have you in the position that is the issue to do the Doppler. Is that what you went through?

Not yet. I'll try doing a doppler when standing

I can get an erection lying on my back or sitting, but it tends to go away if I move, saying getting on my all-fours to get in position for missionary position.

Similar to mine. But mine doesn't totally go away at missionary.

How long have you had this symptom? And did it get worse overtime? I cannot afford an implant and will be fine to manage this condition so long it doesn't get worse.

I thought your implant should solve this?

Did you run a doppler test while laying on your back? What was the results?
