Could it be over doing Kegels roughly 3-4 months ago that could have caused my difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection?
Could I have strained/damaged the muscles?
Kegels caused ED?
No but I did them quite frequently with a lot of vigor and I can't remember if the problem started before this or after.
I know I would get an erection while doing them, but I stopped and so to did the erections.
I read somewhere you can damage the muscles and parasympathetic nerves and I wonder if thats what happened?

By kegels, you do mean just flexing the muscles that control elimination, right?
You are not making a reference to something else you might have added, are you?
Intensive flexing and holding yes.
I'd be very surprised if you could damage anything by Kegels.
Just a thought, I have been having ED symptoms for like 8 months now and that was one of the variables.
No I haven't gone the chrio route yet.
The reason is complicated, but try to follow me, you have been more helpful than any Dr. I have seen yet Radeckl.
I got a referral to a Urologist but my primary care physician did not think there was a problem. We had a falling out because of that.
I had a CT scan about 4 weeks ago, the results have not been read yet for some reason and wont be for another week or so.
I am assuming anything will show up on this scan and we can move forward from there.
I dont know for certain if its muscular or nerve related at this point.

To not get a CT scan read in that period is outrageous!
Maybe you could scope out a good chiropractor and see if you can work out something by way of reduced rates and easy payments.
I am assuming it was read and did not yield anything life threatening so it was placed to one side.
However, it was done at a Catholic Hospital and they had the audacity to ask me my religion, I replied we were Catholic but we aren't affiliated anymore. I probably shot myself in the foot with them I realized after I let that slip.
Makes some sense, but I was treated like a rabid animal over there.
I hope to get to the bottom of this soon so I can start to enjoy life again.
wait hold up. im new. whats KEGELS?
