Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
How may I help you, please?
What is your age?
Do you think your erections are strong?
If your erections are not strong; you need examination by a urologist.
Loss of erection in your age is usually psychological in origin and may be due to sex-anxiety, depression, stress, etc. This will need counseling.
You may need psychosexual counseling.
I think I will opt-out. Some other expert may help you.
Good morning, I am Dr Ruff. Thank you for waiting.
I am sorry to hear you are having difficulty.
Can I clarify, are you able to maintain an erection if you were to masterbate? and does this only happen when you are trying to have intercourse?
Good evening. In the absence of further information I will try to provide an answer but please do feel free to come back to discuss further.
An erection is very much effective by the psychology during the moment. If you have lost interest or are not stimulated then indeed you are likely to lose your erection. And therefore performing sexual intercourse with a flaccid penis is not going to work.
There are a few dietary things to consider - alcohol, caffeine and smoking will reduce your erection. Drink plenty of water.
Second to this, you need to discuss this with your partner. Unfortunately the longer you leave it, the pressure on performing is increasing the issue you have, and therefore you need to discuss this with your partner and discuss sexual preferences that work for you both.
This is certainly a challenging issue to address and I appreciate can be difficult to address.
I hope this helps.
