I had a penile implant installed at age 55, for erectile dysfunction. Now, I can be confident about my ability to perform. I can get an erection whenever I desire, by squeezing a pump in my scrotum. I now perform more consistently than I could with my original equipment many years ago.

I have tried Pos-T-Vac and Viagra and Cialis; none of these worked.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common issue after the age of 40. Medication is good treatment for erectile dysfunction problem. Most of the doctors recommend generic Viagra 100 mg pill to overcome ED.

When I was younger I could have an erection long enough to ejaculate. But if I lost my erection before I ejaculated (i.e. lots of foreplay) it would take a long while before I could get another erection. As I got older my erections would only last 10 minutes at best, and it was almost impossible to ejaculate. I would have to wait hours before I could have sex again. I have been using Cialis for a year with only an occasional mild headache. Now I can last as long as needed and can stop and start as needed, like if we get interrupted.

I don't see a lot of discussion on Venous Leakage causing ED. I have VL and it was discovered 13 years after I became impotent. There is no cure when you have it your sex life is done. You cannot maintain an erection. I developed it @ age 44 and am now 65, Viagra, Cialis, et. al ,do not work, injections do not work, the erection is still gone within a few minutes. Drs always say you should not suffer in silence, but you have no choice when this strikes.

I have used oral medications and found that I had very good success but I had a side effect of indigestion that made it not worthwhile. Now I am doing injection therapy and the results are better than the oral medications with no side effects. This treatment is for erectile dysfunction.

I have found nothing so far that helps. The Viagra pills gave me such a headache I couldn't take them.
