From this study (9 months ago):
in a sexual releationship after 5 years with only masturbation for sexual relief, having a hard time getting and maintaining an erection long enough for intercourse, in fact so far only once for a short time.
From this study (1 year ago):
From the periodic testing, the medicines taken, on the whole, achieve their purpose. However the cumulative side effects seem to result in sleepiness (to the point where normal functioning is not possible), and 'chemical castration' preventing satisfactory sexual intercourse even with Cialis (not taken daily, only on demand).
