But it is also pretty common for men to have OK/so-so nocturnal erections and then develop psychogenic issues after their first "failure to launch" that would be easily overcome if they were firing on all cylinders, but no so easy to overcome with OK/so-so erectile quality. In that case, it is hard to tease out an isolated cause (because there isn't one, it's multi factorial).

43 years old
5'7", was 220 pounds when trouble started, now down to 165
Trouble began with abrupt ED Early May '15
Initial T level 130
Started Clomid in hopes of rebooting system June '15
Currently taking 25 mg eod and .25 mg Arimidex every 4 days
T level 480 or so at last reading
ED in check with 2.5 mg Cialis eod and supplements:
POM juice, L-Cit, Pycnogenol
Morning anxiety currently in check with GABA taken every night
Biggest current worry is heart health:
Aortic stenosis (very mild for now)
CAC score 156(!) at age 42
Lp(a) is a shockingly bad 390 nmol/L -- TRIPLE the "extremely high risk" level!
Homozygous for the bad "G" variant of SNP rs10455872, which increases Lp(a) as well as odds for aortic stenosis and coronary artery lesions.
I think I know what trashed my heart...
40 mg Crestor and baby aspirin every day
CoQ-10, Vitamin K2, and Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract every day too
Walking 10,000 steps a day
