    Any glance at your email spam filter will tell you that erectile dysfunction is big business, but this common complaint can be extremely distressing for those men who suffer with it. Read more →

    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'm 28. Recently I performed some jelqing exercises for 6 days. During the exercises, for the first 2 days, I squeeze the base of my penis too tight that blood was not circulation properly. Afterwards, especially for last 2 days, I noticed that it was difficult to get an erection and to keep it during the exercises. When I sleep, my erection was around 50%. Is it normal? So I stopped doing it. I was wondering whether I should pay a visit to a Doctor? What could I do to regain a full erection? How long would it take? And whether it is a sign of ED since the erection does not last for long?

    Hi, I am 20 years old. Yesterday and today, I woke up with an erection (thats the normal part). However, it was the sharp pain on the tip of my penis that has been worrying me. It seems that I get the pain when I begin to get an erection. When its not erect, there is no pain at all. It does not burn or sting when I pee. It just stings when I get an erection. Please help me out. I'm kind of worried. I have not had sex recently however my girlfriend does have a yeast infection and I performed oral.

    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 :(

    Do you get an erection on first waking in the morning? also do you get an erection if you look at some porno dvd's or sex on the internet? do you ger an erection when having a wank on your own? If the answer is yes, then your body is working normally, but maybe you are too anxious that you lost your eerection last time you has sex. Try imagining some very erotic thoughts or previous sexual experiences while making love to your partner I find that helps. Go to your health shop and get some ginsing tablets, or some called horny goat weed, I have taken both for a course of a month or so and find a big improvement. Good Luck.

    Im a 16 year old male, when i was younger i was circumcised. I've never been able to get a full erection. I don't get morning glory, my penis is only semi erected and only goes a little bit hard and 'larger' but not sticking up. I can't get a full erection for sex either. I wondered if it was to do with being circumcised, i have a twin he was circumcised at the same time as me. I don't know if he can get a full erection or not, it's not really the kind of thing you ask your brother. Can anyone advise me on what is causing this, or if there is a possible way to cure it? Thanks.

    Sadly, I think this connected with your circumcision. A circ done in infancy cannot always accommodate for the growth of the penis. If too much skin has been removed from the underside of the shaft, it will result in this kind of distorted erection. It is very important that you tell your parents about this and also check that your brother is not suffering from the same problem - to hell with sibling embarrassment, this is both your sexual futures at stake. You should ask your folks to take you to a plastic surgeon, who will examine the state of your circumcision(s) and make suggestions about how to correct this problem. I would imagine that a competent plastic surgeon would be able to correct this with not too much hassle. Do it ASAP! Pierre.

    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

    My Boyfriend can manage to get an erection but is unable to ejaculate through sexual intercourse. He can ejaculate by hand. He also has a very low sex drive which I think maybe caused by his inability to ejaculate with sex. He often loses an erection during sex! Please help!

    Hi Samantha, Firstly I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriends unfortunate condition. However do not despair, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I suffered a similar fate several years ago. I was told it was the medication I was on, it was just a slight hiccup it will sort itself out soon enough. Yeh right....not! I kept on at my GP but to no avail. I was under a consultant at my nearby hospital for something unconnected and mentioned my problem to him. He arranged some tests and gave me a rectal examination to check my prostate, all clear there. Then he arranged some blood tests and it was found that I had next to no Testosterone in my blood. Testosterone is what makes us blokes tick, the whoa look at that beauty, etc. etc. yada yada. You get the picture. It also affects our Libido and our erections and sometimes the ability to ejaculate during intercourse. Don't despair there is help. I started with Testosterone gel which I had to apply daily to my chest. It is important that it doesn't come into contact with females, for obvious reasons, it's the male hormone. To be honest it's very messy and didn't do much for me. I was then prescribed Testosterone injections. These are quite uncomfortable and have to be injected into a large muscle mass, i.e. Buttocks or thigh. Yippee I can now rise to the occasion on demand, sometimes though too much for my good lady, who now requests at least a couple of days rest in between, lol. I hope this gives you some hope and something to look forward to. Don't give up, please, and it's not your boyfriend going off you or that he doesn't fancy you any more. It's not his fault, but there is hope and help. Good luck and be good to each other.

    very embarrassed by my inability to maintain full erection for long enough to satisfy my partner for any length of time.usually only stay for about 5 minutes before i lose hardness.she's very understanding but i wish to perform well for her pleasure.tried golden root herbal tablets and that improves my erection sometimes,but feel like a letdown without them and wish there was a permanent fix so i don't have to rely on tablets.makes me feel inadequate.help please.......

    I'm 32 and have a few problems that may be related. My foreskin dose not pull all the way back while erect. This does not bother me or give me any pain so I have never sort advice about it. What I do have is an inability to ejaculate. Most people think it is a blessing that I can hold an erection for over an hour without any problem, however when I am with my wife, sometimes we just want to finish the love making. Just stopping without an ejaculation leave me feeling frustrated and sometimes that I am not doing something right. Please help.

    I have been to the doctors several times about the possibility of having PCOS. I currently have severe acne, dark facial hair, inability to lose weight and irregular periods. However when having given a blood sample to my gp it becomes negative. This aggravates me as although my family do suffer from acne and the inability to lose weight, i seem to be the only one with facial hair and irregualr periods. This is distressing because of my fair skin and sometimes severe abdominal pain. Does a blood sample determine this condition and if it is not PCOS what is it?

    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.
