Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erection problem

03/13/2006

Question:

How do I get my boyfriend to talk about this. I have been trying to bring it up, but he avoids it. No he just walked out on me crying tell me he just needs space to think, that he has alot on his mind, he was crying very hard. We have been together for a year and a half. I think it is a very serious health problem. His mom has talked a little to me about this and said he probably needs to be scrapped. What does this mean. Could he have cancer? He is 45.

Answer:

I need a bit more information about your boyfriends' problem. Is he having an erection problem? Is he having a lack of sexual desire? Tell me more about this "scrapping" issue? Please ask his mom to elaborate. Tell me about your boyfriend's health and lifestyle issues and about your relationship?
