Dear Stephen,
ME and my wife were seeing infertility experts for a yr now.Since my sperm count was low (15 mil/ml) doctor advised me COQ 10 and Eldervit ZC.After taking the medicine the problem has been solved and sperm count has increased subsequently.My wife's report were ok and we have gone through 3 unsuccessful try of IUI.Off late for last 3-4 days I am facing the problem of Erection dysfunction even though cant fell any pain in the region.I also do cycling regularly.Kindly help as i am worried if i have damaged the tissues and the nerves there and what should be the next course of action for me.
with regards,


Holding off on the cycling is worth doing.  Bicycle seats and bicycle riding is notorious for causing ED in some people.  This usually recovers over time.  There could be other reasons for your ED.  If this doesn't resolve, talk to your physicians about it.
