Penis Shrinkage
After cycling 3 years ago, i felt pins and needles in my testicals and penis. This was the only time i felt this pins and needles. Since then i have had problems keeping my penis hard. I do manage to get an erection but can not maintain the hardness. What do you think is the problem and any remedy to this problem will be highly appreciated.

Dear Deepesh

There have been reports of erectile problems in people who are keen cyclists. We are not sure of the mechanism, however it may have something to do with the blood flow. I suggest you see your doctor for a basic workup.
