I'm not taking about the possibility of this leading to depression of the E.D., and this depressed state being the cause of the low libido. I'm thinking is it possible to have physically confirmed E.D. and still feel horny and have a normal raging libido? Does anyone know from personal experience or have relatives that are older, say whether they still have they normal sex drive despite having physical E.D.? Also, does anyone know whether thyroid induced E.D. or prolactinoma induced E.D. could manifest as arterial insufficency or incomplete erection
when induced by PGE1 injection? I cannot get aroused mentally, even with porn, and I feel like if I could get mentally aroused the E.D. would go away. Thanks for the help.
Your last question has been answerd by the study that coz psoted. But I myslelf wonder if ED came first or low libido came first. Personally in my case ED came first and then my libido went down hill with time. However I would like to note that just around the time when ED hit me. I was losing my drive in life, was fatigued and less motivated. But I still had my libido which as I said earlier took a hit with time.
I wonder if libido is more of a state of mind or is somthing that is hormonal / chemical dependent ?
I too feel that if I could get my libido , my ED would go away.
