I'm 23, I know I'm suffering from psychological ED (I get erections in the morning, I can masterbate w/out a problem and I do get an erection upon arousal). I've had a few instances withthin the past month (3 in total) where sex was attempted. 2 of those 3 times I had an erection and lost it before I was able to penetrate, and the other time I was losing it as it was going in and completely lost it like 2 minutes into it. I've never had a problem before and the doctor checked me out and testosterone and thyroid were normal. I recently started doing Kegel exercises and eating very healthy. I'm now anxious about sex and I look @ an attractive girl now and think about sexual failure, I have a girlfriend that's gorgeous and now there is sexual tension that is unresolved because we're not having sex. I took a 10 mg cialis unbeknownced to her and I could feel my erection going down before we could really get into it, so should I take 2? Will this be a sure fire way to have sex until I'm able to fix the prob. I'm so pissed about it this is really frusterating I love having sex what the hell is going on?!!!!!!!!!!
Cialis really doesn't do a great deal to help overcome psychological blocks to arousal. From what you've posted here there isn't much to go on as to what may be causing the problem you're experiencing. Have you had a chance to speak with a psychologist about this?
It could be due to lower back pain. Have you not experienced a regular pain on the lower right side of your back? Even when you masturbate the head of your penis stays soft? These are symptoms of poor blood flow to your penis.
I'm in the exact same boat. 23 YO with the same issues. It wasn't a problem for a while but then something snapped and it hasn't been the same.
However, CharlesBrown, my back has increasingly become discomforted and I noticed my erections are not near as hard as before, particularly the tip.
I was in a car accident 8/08 and stopped going to the chiropractor about 3/10. I started noticing the decline not long after and that my back was getting out of whack again. I'm going to make an appointment to have it checked out, however, are there any tips you would recommend?
I also have had type 1 diabetes for the past 10 years, but regardless of that, I'm healthy as a horse - thin, workout, perfect eyes, etc.
I have been able to overcome this for about 8 months now.
In the meantime, I have gotten happily married and will have a boy born in a couple months.
It wasn't anything I had to do - it was all in my head. I told my future wife when we started dating that I had this issue and she supported me all the way through - no pressure.
Knowing this, we focused on doing other things than intercourse. After a few times, I got more comfortable with her and wasn't worried about whether she would dump me because I knew she cared for me.
After that, it all started working fine and we have a great sex life together.
