Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I am 65.
It has been going on for a few months.
I had an orgasm through normal sex a couple of weeks ago, and after I failed during intercourse this morning (I was aroused and got very close), I managed orgasm through masturbation an hour or so later.
No other medical problems, except for the Cyst mentioned previously, and I am taking no drugs, only vitamin supplements (multi vitamins and Omega 3). However, my doctor prescribed Viagra, thinking this may be the issue, and I took one before sex.

Thank you for that additional information.

Viagra is not what you need......

This does not sound like a physical problem with your equipment but, rather, an issue with your emotions, relationship etc.

The good news? This usually resolves itself in a short time.

If not then sexual counseling can be very effective in getting things back on track.

Does this make sense to you?
