I am 69 years old, still enjoy intimacy. The cardiologist gave me the daily Cialis routine and it works great. As for urination, I drink, I urinate a short time later, there's a sense of urgency with it. I'm going to drink more water to try to help flush out the sugar.

I am diabetic and I have a problem at the time of urinating, some urine comes out with much pain, then after 5 or 10 minutes' gap some more urine out, but not regular.

I am 46 years old I have had a problem for years of not getting blood to my pubic area to have sex with my wife. I have seen a couple of doctors in my area but they have not helped.

I sometimes get up in the morning with wet underwear and I had no sensation during the night that I was wetting myself. The bed is not wet but I am wet. I am 79 years old and a diabetic with glucose readings in the morning around 130 to 140.
