Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Not the same size.

02/27/2007

Question:

I am 37 years old. I have a very active sex life with my wife of 14 yrs. The past couple of years I have noticed a change in the size of my erection. It has lost about 1 1/2 to 2 inches. The erection itself is still very good, but the size will not go back to the way it was. Only rarely does it seem to get close to the old erection. Is this because of my age or could there be something else causing the size difference?

Answer:

This could be due to a disease like Peyronie's disease which causes scarring and shortening of the penis. Please see a local urologist for an evaluation.
