I can only speak from experience I m not a dr or a nurse or someone who normally answer wonderfully on this site but I definitely say yes it does effect an erection. I have experienced it having different effects based on what kind of meds n how long u have been takin them. I think age is a huge factor to this question. I m sure all these wonderful people who can answer better than I will want to know to know more info in order to gjve u better answer. Like how old what kind of pain meds n how long u r using them n any other info.
Good luck I hope u find answers

Yep, sad to say it but yes it definitely affects it. The reason being well from my experience is that pain meds are there to stop pain signals from either reaching your pain receptors in your brain or affect the nerves on the way which has an effect on the whole body. Look when I stop my pain meds it comes back so I know that is what is causing this problem. Timing is a real problem cause when things get hot I may have already taken my pain meds and that puts a damper on that. Having a sensitive and loving partner really helps. Good luck B
