Q: is using pills helpful or harmful when working on anxiety during sex? Thank you for this session!

I’ve been taking Cialis but think I’ve become dependent psychologically upon it . What’s the best way to get rid of the pills? I’m trying the mojo program without pills but this sometimes adds to the anxiety of lack of erection. Thoughts?

I have become dependent on ED medication every time I’m about to have sex. I feel like I’m just adding more fuel to my performance anxiety issue.

My urologist told to to use cialis 2 times a week to get penis muscles stronger so I can easily get an erection. I do know now my ED is psychological now. Any answer would be appreciated. Thanks.

Should i start using viagra as a confident boost as i have failed the last 3 times to have an eraction during sexual activity

I began using Cialis for alcohol-related performance issues when I was about 22. My reliance has come and gone on the pill over the years, but I somehow have always had a hunch that it was anxiety related and simply ignored the issue. It’s been about 6 years now, and my last breakup really challenged me mentally. It’s only been about a week, but I now struggle to even keep an erection when masturbating because of my intrusive thoughts. Is this normal post-breakup, and is there hope for someone who’s ignored the issue for so long to undo the damage?

Is there a recommendation between viagra vs cialis style pills? Does it matter if you have the flexibility of getting an erection whenever vs having to think about taking a pill before you have sex? What about the newer chewables that are being marketed?

I’m in a similar boat to feeling psychologically reliant on pills. I was prescribed Cialis several months ago (over 6 months) and was instructed to take it daily. I had concern over becoming dependent on this medication for getting erections and my urologist stated that isn’t of concern to him, and the goal was for this to help boost my confidence. However, I still experience a low libido and don’t have consistent erections, and struggle with intense performance anxiety any time I know I
Am going to have sex. I have started and stopped the med and now back to taking it daily, but I’m looking to week off of it. I just started mojo and intend on slowly reducing the amount I take it as I start to work on the pelvic floor exercises and other practices mojo provides for us.

Do pills really work? I have blue chews but I’m not convinced they work. I can feel my blood pressure rise, but that doesn’t mean instant erection for me.

I only signed up for the app 7 days ago (just paid 3 maths today) so I am very new.

I am 100% reliant on Viagra for my daily sex life. If I don’t take it I am to anxious and cannot get hard.

I would one day like to become less dependent on it, is there an approach to cutting it out?

I don’t have much feeling in my penis unless it is full of blood, so without coals or viagra, it takes a lot to get anything going and a whole lot more to keep it there, and even then it’s not hard enough for my partner. She thinks she isn’t satisfying to me, even though I enjoy even soft sexual activity. What is the solution? Coalition the morning and viagra at night?

I’ve taken Cialis regularly before sex. I find half a pill makes me rock hard even with some drinks, but a full pill fails me every time. What can possibly cause this?

I use Cialis a couple to a few times per week and not sure if anxiety of getting an erection as I have the desire, but I feel my erection are soft and not as firm as I would prefer.

I have taken Cialis several times and it does not seem to help with my erection. I don’t get too many side effects other than the typical stuffy nose, but erections during sex and early ejaculation still occur. Is it worth trying a different brand or is this an indicator that my ED is all psychological?

I have taken sildenafil multiple times. Doesn’t help at all when I am with a woman. Alone it works great. I can get an erection without sildenafil when alone with some effort. I went through a painful divorce and have suffered from anxiety, premature ejaculation, and no erection ever since. That was 7 yrs ago. Destroys every relationship I try to get in. Should I keep trying taking sildenafil even though it’s super humiliating every time it doesn’t work? This humiliation seems only to make things worse. I don’t want to just lay down and give up though.

What if the pills don’t help and that’s escalating the stress of performance. Doctor says medically not an issue.

At first pilas helped me a lot and it even helped me on boosting my confidence, but after a few times not even the pills worked.

I’ve taken viagra on multiple occasions but it’s never worked for me. I take a 50mg dose but last time i took 2 50mg pills that just did nothing. what could this mean? should i try something else?
