07/07/2006

Question:

my 10 year old son has never had an erection even as a baby my other boys did how do i know if he has aproblem family dr said no problem but how can we know he wont have problem when adult

Answer:

Just as it is normal for parents to see their boys with frequent erections, it is equally normal to never see them. Erectile problems are rare in young men, and the most common reason is anxiety. There is absolutely nothing to worry about in a 10-year-old boy.
