Our expert says:
Having hypertension at such a young age requires you to be investigated to exclude causes of secondary hypertension eg cardiac disease, renal disease, thyroid disorders etc. This should be your first step. Erectile dysfunction may be related to hypertension and it can also be a side effect of antihypertensives. Aim at controlling your blood pressure and if you still experience erectile dysfunction and think it is due to the tablets, discuss this with your doctor so he may consider an alternative. You can also consider using a PDE5inhibitor eg Viagara, Cialis, Levitra, all of which need to be prescribed by a doctor and they do have proven efficacy in treating erectile dysfunction.
