User Profile
I am 45 and have lost a lot of my sexual desire. My wife and I have not made love in a very long time. She thinks I don't want her but I do very much.

I give alot of myself at work in high stress healthcare job as does she. Sometimes all I want is some peace and quiet.

I don't want to lose her though over this and almost ready to give one of these things a try.

I have read about sudden loss of vision etc. though.

Aybody with experiences out there? I do have HBP but my doctor gave me some Viagra which I have been too chicken to use yet. I am interested in the male enhancement stuff too but are they safe?

possible answer to SEX DRIVE problem
Have your Testosterone level taken through a blood test. Test for both Total and Free Testosterone. If your testosterone levels are low, best to start TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy). TRT, if needed, will change your life to the better. Your sex drive will become normal, and the sexual feelings will return like they were when you were in your 30s, and maybe better if you were always low. See a doctor famliar with TRT.

We do have the same health condition. I inherited my HBP both from my parents and having difficulty in taking over-the-counter meds. I am really wondering if this Viagra will help me deal with PE or it will lead to further health problem. My team mate is encouraging me to try one. But i. hesitant until i heard it from a doctor.

Viagra verses Testosterone
Viagra will not help with your sex drive, or the sexual feelings you experience during sex. Viagra is excellent in helping you get an erection only, so you can have sex, that which it is. Testosterone injections could be the answer to all of your problems if, and only if, you find after a blood test you are low or very low on Testosterone. If you are low on testosterone, then changes are good that you found your problem, and thus, your cure.
