Question: Low sex drive yet still having sexual dreams

 al_frank2000 - Sat Jun 25, 2005 5:34 pm

I'm a 38 year old male who has had a low interest in sex for about a year, on top of that I'm experiencing problems with erectile dysfunction either from the prescriptions i'm taking or low testosterone (undiagnosed). I'm a bit concerned because I can't have sex with my wife, yet for about 2 weeks have been having sexual dreams. I wake up with half an erection. How can I have a low sex drive, yet still experience vivid sexual dreams, and why is this occuring all of a sudden. Any help is appreciated.

you did not mention any thing about your psychological state which adversely affect the xual desire and whether you are diabetc ,hypertensive or not and what drugs you are taking.Although the presence of nocturnal erections goes with psychological causes of impotence ,you need to consult your doctor for investigations.
