Default A tough subject for men

Hi guys

My MS has given me the awful gift of erectile disfunction. I rise to the occasion for literally two mins and then everything goes soft. With no mission of regaining it again.

I have tried viagra it did not help in anyway.

Any other guys suffer the same affliction?

Ah, that problem. Not fun. This podcast just came out from Barry Singer MD, Director of The MS Center for Innovations in Care. He interviewed a couple experts in this department. Give it a listen! -D
