Customer Question
I've been having a problem...
I've been having a problem with my erections I went soft inside my girlfriend twice other than that we have been having great sex for months I haven't had a problem getting a erection or having sex. The issue is during the day I feel like a limp noodle and even trying to maturbate it doesn't wana get hard. I've been waking up with morning woods but the feeling during the day worries me. I had my test levels tested and thyroid tested and all is normal, this issue have been on and off for a month or so

For an healthy individual like you, this should be not worrying. The most important thing is that it a single erection problem plays in the mind. This can give in the back of mind a performance anxiety and you start watching yourself more closely. This close scrutiny of yourself can loose the concentration from the sex and you get a bit softer. Please remember sex in not in organ but in mind. Once you start enjoying it you will regain the same strength. Nothing happens suddenly in sex, it is like sports, sometimes you excel and sometimes you are mediocre. If your partner is part of all this understanding you would be back to your best. Don't put yourself under the scrutiny and just start enjoying it. Things should come back to normal.

You may need psycho sexual therapy which helps to reduce performance anxiety, develop the new sexual skills and knowledge, modify negative sexual attitudes, and improve communication between both of you. Involving the partners in the counseling process and psycho sexual therapy helps dispel misperceptions about the problem, decreases stress, enhances intimacy and ability to talk about sex, and increases the chances of successful outcome.

Still if you feel that problem can be organic; you may consider to consult a urologist who would advise you the following investigations;

1) Testosterone levels which is normal.

2) LH estimation

3) Thyroid function tests

4) duplex ultrasonography

5) Ultrasonography of testes

6) angiography

7) penile nerve test,

8) snap and strain guage test,

9) penile biothesiometry.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I've talked with my girlfriend and she is very understanding our sex has been great even with the problem but once we finish I think back to the time I went soft and fixate on it then it's like starting over again with the process I feel like I give myself anxiety
Urologist: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Urologist replied 10 months ago

Yes, I am certain that your symptoms are due to anxiety of failing because it has happened before.

Please do not worry at all.

You have otherwise normal erections.

So just relax.

It is privilege assisting you.
