    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....

    Sudden changes like this need to be taken very seriously. It could be a blood flow problem. I'm not an expert, but I don't think it would be wise to wait on this. You should see a doctor immediately - go to the hospital if your GP is not available.

    occasionally you can get scar tissue building up in the tube in the penis (the urethra) which makes the urine flow very random. Diabetes can also cause problems in how erections develop, but if the erection is changing shape, this could because of fibrous tissue developing within the shaft (Peyronie's disease) - its not something you need to panic about at all, but you could take a photo and explain to your GP. They can discuss treatment options

    Im 14 and masturbate aboout once or twice a day, and im worried about the forsking on my penis. whenever i get an erection my foreskin does not retract at all, it stays on the head where it usually is even without an erection. It doesnt cause me problems too much, but im woundering if its normal because penis' in videos dont really look like mine. does the foresking retract through age?

    I think everything you're describing is normal, my boyfriend gets an erection when I start taking a sock off let alone a hug. And the goosbumps I think are glands of some sort, every guy has them but you see it more because you are closer to it

    Your very young, its normal to get arrouseed easily. You penis is above average length, and to be honst, girls aint always bothered about length. This issue will get better with age. Get a girlfriend, she'll soon sort it out :)

    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 im 22. Im with a new partner and I've been suffering with erection problems, it happened the first time we tried i just put it down to nerves. The next time everything worked well. But the last time i had problems again so im a little worried as its quite embarrassing. I do have a tight foreskin too so though that could be part of the problem. Is there anything i can try to help? Thanks

    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 had my prostate removed 2 1/2 yrs ago. i believed i would overcome the incontinence issue and obviously hoped the erection problems would subside. I am afraid to say in both cases this has not happened. I find it very frustrating to be constantly wet.I was told at hospital recently that nobody is ever pad free.is this true? as for erection problems there isnt the sexual drive,no nighttime erections and a problem keeping an erection.how sad. At least im alive.i had an aggressive cancer and may have died within 6mths

    My husband had his prostate removed over 5 years ago. Pelvic floor exercise was recommended to control the bladder, which has been totally successful. Ask your wife or partner to help you to do this. Forget everything else....radical prostatectomy is Radical (capital R) ...you will be really lucky to regain any sex life. My husband's alive. That's it!

    Hi Just reading this 10 weeks on from a radical prostetecomy and I must say I am now virtualy pad free. The only reason I say virtualy is a couple of times a week I use grade 1 pad as a confidence thing. The erection problem is not even slighly rectiying its self. Dispite trying Cialis. However I am under a great team at St James. I was 49 when diagnosed and had Robotic Surgery. T3 Tumor Gleason 7 with 13.9 PSA.

    Hi, I am having problems in the bedroom with my girl friend that i love! Some times when we start kissing etc i begin to get an erection then after a while (when we are about to have sex) my erection goes? I have been overworking and am often tired however when im with my girlfriend i am not tired. Is there anything you could suggest, to keep an erection/be more confident?

    My husband is 57 he suffers from intermittent claudication affecting his leg. He also suffers from erectile problems but when visiting a doctor they just try to palm him off with Viagra. I am sure his erection problems are connected to the claudifcation and should be looked into a bit further. He can get an erection but it is not as firm as it used to be and it is not very consistent making sex very frustrating at times. Why won't doctors take it more seriously and what should they be doing for it?

    I am 62 years old and cannot remember the last time I actually had an erection. The problems started about 18 years ago when, even aroused and hard, as soon as I prepared to penetrate I would go soft. I have tried Viagra, but that only worked sporadically and for some years now, I have only managed a soft erection when I masturbate, although I do climax. Is this just a natural 'sign of the times', i.e. age-related, or is there anything I can do to recover a firm erection?

    Dont get as drunk. Simple answer.

    Hi I have the typical sighs of peyronies decease I have an upward curve lost around an inch off the length a pea size lump on the top of my penis and a hard lump on the right side of my shaft . I also suffer with erection problems created by this ie I can get an erection but not completely hard and the end never seem to receive the blood supply . I am so concerned that this will not be corrected and is creating massive problems as I'm in a new relationship with a girl with a high sex drive which used to match my own until this problem has occurred . My question is how corrective are these methods as I'm really worried I will always now be like this ?
