My erection difficulties have got worse over the past three years.
My GP has tried to help but we have run out of options.

We are taking it slowly at the moment but it’s her birthday coming up soon and I want to take her away.
I know that sex will be on the cards for us but I’m worried sick I won’t be able to perform. Can you give me some help?
