Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
I am sorry to hear this. Can I clarify what you mean by this?
Okay thanks. And your wife has been examined and all is okay?
Regarding not maintaining an erection, with foreplay is this not prolonged or is not possible?
Sorry, and have you tried lubricants?
Okay, so if you have been examined and all is okay, lubricants do not work, the issue may be with your husband maintaining an erection to be able to perform vaginal intercourse.
Have they tried any medication to help with this such as Sildenafil/Viagra?
Unfortunately there is a huge risk that the psychological implications of this make maintaining an erection harder. Therefore they may not be anything structurally wrong. Using medication may help resolve the issue, and then I suspect one things are back to normal, the medication would no longer be required.
So approach it this way, this doesn't suggest there is a problem, however with a recurring issue, the anticipation itself will be enough to lose an erection as this is what normally happens. You can buy viagra (Sildenafil) via an online pharmacy without seeing the GP if they are worried about this. It may be that all they need is a low amount like 25mg or 50mg, take it 1 hour before anticipated sex. The drug doesn't cause an erection on its own, and you still need stimulation, but certainly worth trying.
If it works, then you can then stop using it as the anticipation of failure would naturally resolve.
That is my pleasure, well I hope you find away to address it.
