I’ve been grappling with what seems to be post-COVID erectile dysfunction for approximately 2.5 years. This issue arose immediately after my first COVID infection, without any gradual onset. Despite occasional erections, they lack consistency in firmness and duration. I’m 39, single, in excellent health, and engage in sports 5-6 times a week.
Initially, I didn’t associate it with COVID, but after reviewing studies and the timeline, I started to make a connection. Despite various tests, including blood tests showing no hormonal issues, an okay doppler result, and normal neurological tests, the cause remains unclear. Some urologists suspect microvein damage or blood flow problems, but confirmation is elusive. After three PRP (P-shot) sessions without significant improvement, I’m now considering advanced stem cell treatments, though the location is undecided (if anybody has recommandations)
I’ve noticed a decline in hardness during masturbation (needing to force myself to masturbate to get the penis engaged), occasionally even forcing sexual intercourse to assess erections. Morning erections are infrequent, especially without Cialis. While PDE5 inhibitors sometimes help, they’re not consistently effective. Undoubtedly, these challenges have impacted my libido, even though I have plentiful opportunities with women, and most importantly making it particularly challenging to pursue a long-term relationship. I’m also using Mojo alongside, addressing the psychological aspect of ED, which, in my opinion is a constant presence in ED, just at different levels (I am pretty sure my cause is more physical, but wanting to explore all fronts)
If anyone has faced similar issues or found solutions, I’d appreciate hearing about your experiences and any advice you may have.
