My urologist prescribed me Viagra, but id much rather go the herbal route.. so I have been taking L-Arginine and Pycnogenol everyday with some Ginseng aswell.. Just started taking these things .. btu seems to be helping a bit.
Im interested in trying Horny Goat Weed and maybe Tribulus Terrestris.. etc.. my question is.. are these supplements safe to take for someone with prostate problems? Or could they make my prostate problem worse?
Also, I know tribulus is supposed to increase testosterone.. is that a wise thing to do without consulting a doctor? It would seem that more testosterone is usually a good thing for men right?
Any one have advice on some prostate safe libido/erection enhancing herbs?
sildenafil (viagra) usually won't work on prostatitis. though I have read few articles about men getting an erection for 4 or 5 minutes then the erection going completely dead. when your prostate is getting the hell beat out of it everyday, there is no way the prostate is going to be able to work right........
