Donk: Just want to share this helpful health tip I have learned: If your erections are less than you think they should be, get to your doctor and get your cholesterol tested. If it's high, lowering it may restore you to full glory. Let me make clear that I have always been fully "functional"--my penis was always able to get hard enough to have intercourse, and usually able to get "rock hard". But for awhile there I felt like something was lacking and my erection was not at its best 100% of the time. I assumed this was a combination of aging (not that I'm "old", but I'm not a teenager anymore) and my size requiring excess bloodflow. Anyway, I recently went to my doctor for a routine check-up. He did a cholesterol test and my level was very high, which was surprising because my diet and exercise are better than average. The doc explained that in my case it was probably a hereditary problem that would require medication. He started me on the medicine a short time ago and I have noticed a dramatic improvement in my erections! Talk about a cool side effect. My erection was fine before, but now it's like super--gets fully hard quicker and always gets and stays rock hard. It's like being a teenager again. I was probably living with this cholesterol issue for several years without even knowing it.
