TROUBLE WITH ERECTIONS

QUESTION
Is it safe to place your penis upwards inside your underwear? Because I do this regularly, but lately I've been having trouble getting erections. Thank you.

ANSWER
I am not aware of any specific cause of difficulty getting erections related to the position of the penis in underwear. There are a variety of medical specialists who deal with erectile dysfunction (ED). ED can be caused by stress, drugs, problems with blood flow related to diabetes and arterial disease among others.

To your health,
Dr. K
