I have the same issue.  I'm on the same meds.  My friends who are poz tell me the cause is the meds. or perhaps low testosterone. Or the stress you have been going through dealing with HIV.  Or in my case the fact that I'm not as young as I use to be.  Or high blood pressure.   It could be caused by a number of things, even at your age.  The thing that sucks is that my doc pulled my "little blue pill" prescription because of the reyataz / norvir and my blood pressure.  It's a good thing I have an understanding husband.

I just noticed your new numbers...  nice improvement.

Take care, Pippet

Same issue here, and 44 years old.  I just had the doctor check my testosterone, it was fine.  I don't have high blood pressure, yet.  And, my blue pills got taken away I believe it was because of what Medicaid/Medicare would or wouldn't cover.  I wouldn't take one of those any longer anyway, since I did hear of someone losing their sight.  I have used Cialis and found that it has worked better, but kicks in better the next day and nothing at first.  Oh, and always a terrible headache the second day!

Anyway, Cialis isn't covered either.  And, the funny(worst) part is, I can wake up with a raging hard-on and there's not an ass to be found.  I can be with someone and turned on, and it just won't get as hard as it does in the morning, if at all.

this really sucks, and i am getting conscious about this more an dmore,,, the doc did give me some samples of Levitra. does that really work?

does this go away after a whiel? or am i stuck with this forever? gosh,,, this relaly sucks,,,

my testosterone level was low, but since i have been on the shot and the gel, i think they are probably at a normal range now.

Great, another one that I know gets not only the shot, but the gel, too! 

I'm guessing that you will have better days given the aforementioned! 

Sorry, I know it's a bitch at my age, it must be hell at yours!  But, you did get the gel!

Have you been with someone that really gets you hot................and still you have this problem..................do tell..................go ahead really be elaborate.  Set the scene, have we been drinking.................................

It was just a failed attempt at humor.......................you stated in your earlier posting that "it gets hard to get a full erection." 

I knew what you were saying.................that it is difficult to become fully erect. 

I won't quit my day job.

e-

It could be you're so worried about it that it's keeping you from getting an erection.  Subconciously, you could be short circuiting yourself.   You have a lot going on right now and I am sure it's taking its toll.

SSRI anti-depressant tend to do it too, in addition to the previously mentioned low testosterone and elevated blood pressure.  And of course, you aren't 18 anymore.

You know, I've found that I can get a raging boner from reading a story as opposed to looking at a dirty mag.  The last time, I was reading a story about a father and son that went camping and that dad suggested they go clean up in the river, wash their clothes while they are on and then after removing them asks his son to help wash him................and well, you can imagine where they story goes from there.  Okay, not a pedophile here, but something about those father son stories gets me going.  And no, I never thought of my father that way..............don't even like the man.
