James: I don't know the specifics of your issue..., i.e., your age, your physical conditioning, etc. But I know it probably has troubled you significantly and you are seeking out any answers you can find.


I may be able to help by telling you I have had the same issue in the last 2 years. I just turned 44, though most see me as someone in their mid-to-late 30's. I was blessed with an appearance of youth and good skin. I am in reasonably good condintion though it could always be better. I tend to go through phases where I work out religiously and then I stop. Diet is pretty solid too. Perhaps my biggest issue is that I smoke between 1-2 packs a day.


My Dr. gave me Viagra and it does seem to work though not always and not at the right time after eating the pill. I have trouble with keeping hard at times and that is troubling when I get excited and then lose it.


My Dr. finally told me after my recent physical in April that I should stop smoking. No immediate health issues BUt I take blood pressure medicine (Atacand 30Mg) and that has some historical effects on sex drive. But he insisted that my smoking was likely the issue. I hope he is right as I'm stopping now and want to see a return to good sexual activity in the coming months.


Of course, I say this just as the only person I thought I'd ever found that I could spend the rest of my life with is trying to pull away for some reason. I don't think my decreased sesual ability has impacted the relationship as much as, possibly her current pre-menopausal condition. That is a guess though and I want to research it some more.


I hope this provides some insight for you.
