Patient discussion about FG syndrome

Q. Is it ok not to want children? I am 33, and I know my bio clock is ticking, but I just don't want to have a child. At least not yet. Is there something wrong with me?

A. I agree with fatman, that's totally your decision.
If you feel that you're not ready yet, better to wait until you're more ready for that. Because having children is another big responsibility, and you will feel guilty if -for the sake of your age- you push yourself to have child, then morally you are not welcoming that child.

Q. What are some ways to get an erection? Libido and sperm are OK. I have had a problem with depression for years. I have always had a strong libido and I find that my ED has been a factor in my depression. Sexual relationships have helped me deal with my depression. What a MIRACLE! How can something so good be a remedy for mental problems. Oh! for a good stiff dick. I have considered a penile prosthesis implant but I'm still hoping for something better. Any information that might help would be greatly appreciated and I will remember you in my dreams and fantasies(sexual)for you ladies and I'll thank you studs. John
