    My boyfriend has difficulty maintaining an erection. He has problems ejaculating and can only orgasm through oral sex. He is 46 and has had by-pass surgery in the last year. He is in good physical condition. We have tried Viagra and it helps keep his erection longer but he still cant ejaculate throughintercourse. Would aspirin help with blood flow?

    Hi P.J.


    He clearly can ejaculate, as evidenced by your comment regarding oral sex. I presume therefore he can also ejaculate by masturbation? His surgery could well have knocked his confidence and he may be concerned whether the physical activity associated with sexual intercourse might affect his heart. I'm guessing this problem only started after his surgery?


    This sounds like a psychological rather than a physical problem. If he is willing I think it might be useful to seek help from a qualified sex therapist, or if the root of the problem seems to be his heart, getting reassurance from a heart specialist.

    National Health And Wellness Show Wants To Help... 


    My name is Danielle Gervais. I'm a Producer with a nationally-syndicated health and wellness show. We are putting together a segment about male health and the secrets that men keep that can lead to more serious health issues. The three important issues that we're discussing are Erectile Dysfunction, frequent urination and memory loss and the fact that all three symptoms can be indicators of serious health issues. We are looking for three men to speak candidly about their experiences with each one of these issues. We're hoping to reach out to men of all ages and backgrounds through this segment - to let them know that keeping health secrets can be dangerous to their health.


    If you or someone you know is keeping a male health secret and you'd like to share your story with us, please contact the show:
