This sounds like you are getting into the stage of male menopause especially getting the hotflashes its a good indicater of this. I would try to get your doctor to put you on either androgel or testim one of the 2 if you are a more severe case then you may need injections. I think in as little as 2 or 3 weeks on a transdermal testoterone cream of about 10g a day you should notice significante results in your erections. You may want to have him test your Thyroid and Adrenals though to make sure that they are functioning optimal cause these can lower testosterone as well but more than likely its just the T.

Hi Berserk,

What medications if any are you on? Oftentimes highblood pressure or heart medication can cause this in older gentlemen. Have a urologist run some tests on you or talk to your pharmacist.

Good Luck,

Hey berserk
Stress absoltely affects libido and can impact your ability to obtain/maintain erection. It can also aggrivate conditions that cause problems with your sex drive. Regardless of other possible causes I'd reccomend finding a way to process the things on your mind and reduce the stress you're under.

At 63 you're actually past the point where hormonal issues can start to impact arousal responce. I'd definately suggest you talk to your doctor about what can be done to adress this. There's no reason a man in good health has to accept that his sex life is over at any age.
