Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
I have recently pulled my groin in lacrosse practice a day ago, and now I am impotent. It is not a severe strain, mild discomfort at most, This has never happened to me and I am wondering if this is normal at all or at least expected due to the injury? Is there something worse than a groin strain going on? please any help would be wonderful.
It is unusual to have physical impotence after a muscle strain or pull in that area, unless there some type of nerve injury, blood vessel tear or severe pain with erection. Please see a urologist if the situation persists.
