    Hello, i am 24, I weigh 135 lbs and am 5'9. For years I have been struggling maintaining an erection. When I was 19 and 20 I could get an erection and have sex with my GF but if she ever got on top it instantly just died. However now, I cannot even masturbate without my erection rapidly dying. Last year i saw a doctor and he cleared me of diabetes and any other physical problems that could cause ED. He said it's probably psychological but i have no idea what to do....

    You also put yourself at higher risk for erectile dysfunction and a number of other problems by not getting enough exercise and not eating healthy foods. By working to maintain a more balanced diet rich in a few key foods, you may see and feel a difference almost immediately. http://edfigured.com Sometimes Erectile Dysfunction is the cause of emotional issues, such as anxiety, fear, and depression.

    I'm 19 and have a problem keeping an erection whilst inside my girlfriend. I can keep an erection during oral, I can also masturbate perfectly fine without losing my erection. Plus when I do finally keep it up and cum, I don't get that releasing feeling I get after masturbating. I never cared before with pass girlfriends as it was just wham bam thank you mam. But I do like to satisfy her.

    ??? Sounds like your tools of trade are fine and are in working order.. The only issue is when you are parking inside your partner..?? Physlogical issue seems a strong answer to this.. Perhaps you have over did it on the other arenas and your expectations have now been distorted in some way in your mind.. Or perhaps you strong urge to really want to pleasure the person you are with, you feel/ think you are not good enough..and find sheltering your insecurities via resisting, sending subconscious messages to body to deflate.. and going to the more safe mode of manual pump or oral, which is where you feel secure, safe and no pressure.. ??? Jack I am no medical professional, I would get some quality advice on this via GP. and take it from there. This is not a unique problem. Your partner will suffer also, she may be ok at first, but she will then feel bad, thinking it is her, then possibly she will get frustrated as she has needs also.. Jack go to a Doc, for advice and direction, not for one person needs but for two.. Take Care

    hi I am a 15 year old girl and I have been diagnosed with endometriosis and my pain is constant not just when I have a period. my cousin who is roughly the same age as me also suffers with constant pain and has also been diagnosed with it, but our consultant is saying that you shouldn't get constant pain with endometriosis so I was wondering if you actually can get constant pain as we have read it on a number of websites and another consultant has told us so. do any of you get pain constant?

    hey i am 24 and i was diagnosed with endometriosis when i was 22 and i get constant pain all the time not just when i bleed so yes you can get constant pain.

Show more…

    i suffer from the same problem sometimes, i have come to realise that other factors can influence the maintainance of an erection e.g. stress, excessive alcohol intake. But the biggest problem for me has been the constant pressure to perform after an embarrassing encounter. Try relaxing during sex and not think about the problem. If you can have an erection at any other time like mornings then it is unlikely to be erectile dysfunction.

    Hi I have suffered with psoriasi for 40 years does thie have a big effect on erection.

    How did you get diagnosed with a neuroma at the base of your penis, and do you happen to experience a flaccid curvature? Your description is the first that matches mine in symptoms.

    In reply to the question asked about how was I diagnosed. I was never properly diagnosed. Every urlogist I went to only made a guess diagnoses. When I ask for an MRI or an Ultrsound they were not interested. They all acted like there was nothing they could do, but how can they say that when they dont do any diagnostic testing. I think it is a tare in the suspensery ligament and the artey is pinched through ghe tare. When I get an erection the pea size lump enlarges and is very hard. It is also right bebeath the skin. I even tried a clinic in Jacksonville Fl. The MD there read a report from one of the doctors I seen and never examined me or seen me in person and said he agrees with the other urologist opinion. Also my penis is slightly curved to the left when erect and the lump is on the right side. That makes me wonder too if maybe the ligement is stretched on the right side allowing for the penis to bend to the left more. I have not been able to find a doctor who wants to take an interest in helping me with a true diagnoses and then utilize critical thinking skills and say "Yes we know exactly what it is and this is what can or cannot be done to fix it. " Instead I get stupid answers and blank looks and confused doctors that since they dont know they dont want to get involved and try to solve the problem. They just want to stick the the routine things they do and charge a lot of money for their service. If its something they have use their thinking skills on they have no interest in helping. I have lived with this burning pain in my penis for a very long time and since its outside of the box of routine urological care they shove me out the door.

    I am having problems with keeping an erection just before penetration. I am able to have an erection through oral and everything before but as soon as I put a condom on, I lose my erection. Is there anything I can do about this ? As it is stressing both me and my partner out.

    i'm 17, first of all I have delayed ejaculation when having sex which is annoying and I don't understand why I have it. Secondly, whenever i'm drunk which is the only time i'm confident around girls I can never get an erection, I think one of the main reasons is because I have skin pigment on my penis, therefore I just use it as an excuse that I was drunk so I couldn't get an erection, although i do partially believe it is just because i'm drunk. I don't dare do anything with a girl when i'm sober because i'm scared that I wont get an erection again because of the pigment which i will worry about and just ruins my confidence further more even though I have not actually tried. I did have a girlfriend for 17 months and she was the only person I was confident in showing it to and having regular sex with a full erection.

    I'm a 49 years old gay male, with erectile dysfunction, I seem to be able to get an erection during the night and early morning, but unable to get an erection when engaging in sex with my partner of 4 years we are in an monogamous relationship. I put not being able to get an erection to being raped after having my drink spiked when on holiday 2 years ago. I have tried counselling but felt I wasn't taken seriously.

    I highly recommend drinking hot lemon water first thing in the morning before you eat or drink anything else. Squeeze one whole lemon into a mug and then add the lemon itself. Poor hot water over wait to cool and drink the entire cup. It's not the best tasting drink but really helps with passing wind. I've been told doing this and have been told that it lines your stomach and have to say it really works.

    I've been having trouble maintaining an erection lately, its simply gotten worse and worse. I can't seem to maintain a strong erection except for just before i ejaculate, or if i force one but that only lasts a few seconds. If I do get aroused i can't maintain it for long, and feel very under-stimulated no matter what i try. I've also found out its easier to try to maintain an erection when stood up rather than lied down, but thats about it. I'm not sure if theres any help availible, but any advice would be really helpful :(
