constant erection in 14yr old HIV boy on ARVS
Apr 24, 2010
my son is 14yrs old, sexually inactive, has been on ARVS for the last 5yrs. He is constantly erect and i wonder if it could be a side effect of ARVS.

Hello and thank you for your post.
Priapism is not associated with antiretroviral therapies, to my knowledge. If you son really has these symptoms, you should bring this to the attention of his doctors.
