DEAR DEIDRE: I have tried so many different things but I am still struggling with erectile dysfunction. I’ve had it up to here.
I am 27 years old and I wrote to you six months ago about my problems.

You suggested I see my doctor, who examined me for any underlying health issues.
All my tests came out clear, but he recommended I lose some weight. So I quit smoking, cut down on my alcohol intake and started running.
My girlfriend and I also stopped having sex for a few months to see if that made a difference, but it didn’t.
I still only get hard half the time, and if I do, I very rarely manage to ejaculate.
Each issue receives a personal response, usually within 24 hours on weekdays.
A friend has similar problems and uses Viagra. He says it’s great.
Could this work for me?
DEIDRE SAYS: Viagra can be a good solution for men with erectile dysfunction because it temporarily increases blood flow.
But you should consult your doctor before starting any new medication.
