Does anyone have any suggestions on how to prevent erections in an 18 year old with autism? It has begun to affect his behaviors in an extremely negative way. I'm waiting on his physician, but so far no help. Anyone have any ideas?

Omgosh I wish I knew! My oldest is 18 but not autistic... We haven't gotten there yet with my 11 year old. I hope someone here has the advice you need.

Don't quote me on this, but it might give you a place to start. Depending on the severity of his autism, there is a medication that will stop erections. I don't know the side effects. It stops erections and sexual desire. You could ask your doctor about that. Sorry I wish I was more help.

Talk to your dr about depo prevera injections. Yes the female birth control...it reduces libdo and prevents erections in males.
