Less desire, poor erections,
Warfarin, also known as Coumadin, is a medication that thins down the blood and prevents blood clots. This can be a good thing if you have certain heart and/or circulatory ailments. But it can be a very bad thing if you're trying to get an erection. So yes it can cause poor erections. I don't know about lack of desire. I really don't see how it would cause that. You may be doing that to yourself because you know you can't stay erect. I don't mean you're doing it on purpose, I mean like an unconscious thing. It's possible. Or maybe you simply feel nervous because you can't stay hard and the nervousness is causing the lack of desire.
I'm wondering if Viagra or 1 of the other ED meds can help you, and I don't know. You should ask your doc. Viagra can cause more blood to go to the penis, but I think it will still be the same thinned down blood. I am just not sure. So ask the doc.
