cbay0509  thank you +1  
ilikedmyfirstusername  there are several UWorld questions about psychogenic ED with the answer being normal libido and normal nocturnal erections, idgi +14  
djeffs1  Yeah NBME says its C, but I still think with a recent stroke you can't bank on normal nocturnal erections... +  
drdoom  @djeffs nocturnal erections happen at the level of the spinal cord (S2–S4)! a “brain stroke” (UMN damage or “cortical damage”) would not kill your ability to have nocturnal erections! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nocturnal_penile_tumescence#Mechanism +1  
drjo  fatigue, difficulty sleeping and concentrating could be depression or hypothyroidism both of which can cause decreased libido +  
jurrutia  @djeffs1 when you say NBME say's it's C, how do you know that's the official answer? Did NBME post the answers somewhere? +  
djeffs1  in the versions I purchased from them they highlight the correct answer in the test review +1  
shieldmaiden  For me the keyword in the stem is "maintain"; he can maintain an erection, therefore nocturnal erections must be normal. Libido, on the other hand, is psychologically driven, so if he is depressed (trouble sleeping, concentrating, fatigue, recent major health problem) then the strength towards any kind of desire, including sexual, will be low +2  
chaosawaits  His nocturnal erections are normal because his spinal cord is not damaged. His libido has decreased because he's showing signs of depression. +  

Since all of the questions/answers are not on this site here is one with basic explanations if anyone wants it: https://usmlemate.blogspot.com/search/label/NBME%2019
