Hi there, my name is William, and at age 30 I began suffering from impotence (erectile dysfunction).

For a couple years, I suffered from depression because of this and eventually lost the love of my life over it. My own insecurities got the best of me, and I kept ‘projecting’ those insecurities on to her. I just couldn’t believe that she could still love me and be with me forever if I couldn’t please her. I kept thinking about her fantasizing about other men, and eventually she left me because of my own unhappiness.

Impotence took me by surprise. It just started to happen gradually and eventually I just couldn’t get it up at all. I felt so frustrated and useless. Being 30, I still had many healthy years ahead of me left and I just couldn’t believe that something like this was happening to me.

I’ve always been reluctant to get help on things. I always felt you were ‘weak’ if you sought out help. But, I realized that getting help was the best thing I ever did. For the longest time I didn’t realize I was impotent, I just thought I was going through a ‘phase’ or something – something that was psychological. But it turns out that it was something physical, and not that uncommon. I ended up trying many different things – from treatments to remedies to male enhancement pills. In the end, I realized I didn’t have to do drugs at all to cure my impotence.
