Urology/Erectile Dysfunction in 28 Year Old, Possible Prostatitis

Hey David,

My story is EXACTLY the same. Any luck? I am currently visiting an urologist and he has also diagnosed me with prostatitis and I am on antibiotics.

Another thing I want to add, I seem to have particular difficulty in maintaining an erection while standing?

Also, have you taken accutane or any other 5-ar inhibitor (propecia, proscar etc)? The reason I ask is because I took accutane and I'm wondering if that had any effect. Good luck with your recovery.

Hi John or David - can either of you follow up on your answer please? I have the exact same symptoms too and am feeling quite down about this situation.

Please respond!

Thanks - James
