Weak and soft erections at 21

10% of men experience erectile dyfunction. When does a penis become erect? And what is ED? Start here for ED basics....
Can other medical conditions causes erection problems? Here we review the many potential causes of erectile dysfunction. ...
If you can't achieve an erection or control ejaculation, you might have Erectile Dysfunction. But what primary ED symptoms should you look for?...
Well, this is my latest happening:

I have been ejoying normal sex with my girlfriend for the last 2 months, last week she wanted very badly to have sex with me while she was on her period. ( im guessing her hormone levels must have gone crazy and well, I wanted some too). The week before that everything was fine, I was having rock hard erections, I could hold my ejaculation time pretty well... but this week the first time we started out fine but i lost my erection, so we headed up to the room and then my erection was lost completely. The next day again we try, my erection is weak/soft, and so the next day was the same story and I'm thinking hey, maybe because of her period my desires werent that big and it just went down. A week passes and we go at it again, but this time, when I finally managed to get it hard, I ejaculated like 3 minutes into the erection and there it went soft on me again.So I go in my mind.. " Premature ejaculation.. HELL NO!"

I'm getting frustrated because I havent yet gone back to normal. I started doing exercises, lifting weights, bought some Ginkgo biloba in hopes to better my blood flow, but still nothing. Im really worried because it was all of a sudden... but yeah... i guess Ill wait for your answers. Smile

additional details:
-I felt and heard a Popping sound on the base of my penis when erect the week before all of this happened, but it had happened to me before and there is no pain or bruises, it was just that she laid a little of her weight on my erection pushing it into the wrong direction. But again. No pain whatsoever ( ive tried feeling the area where it happened and nothing )

-I was diagnosed Depressed by a psychiatrist in the summer, but the cause of my depression went away and with it my depression. I feel much better and much more alive than I did when I was depressed, plus this was like 3 months ago.

-regular masturbation habits, 3 or 4 times a week. ( while young the number was so much bigger... but ive managed to control myself )

Did you recently stop taking Beta Blockers? Any injuries that required medical attention? Are you under unusual stress at work or from family? Are you getting on well with the girlfriend?

Is this problem only happening with her or are you also having trouble when you masturbate?

Yeah, I tried watching Pornography and it gave me a nice erection for seconds and the it goes down. I would say the problem is not her because I was performing well with her and im very very physically attracted to her.

I would say yes this happens to me at masturbation also.

I think this may legitimately be ED as odd as it is to have problems like this at your age. Talk to your doctor and have him run whatever tests he thinks are appropriate to diagnose what's going on.

I dont know Ill go to the doctor soon but i mean I still manage to get an erection enough to penetrate her ( not as satisfying as before but to her it is ) and searching up on the internet i found some words that sounded to me pretty hard like: "Sexual Exhaustion" and "Over Masturbation"... Why does this words may have a meaning to me? Well, I did masturbate in between the days I had sexual intercourse with my girlfriend, maybe not even letting a 72 hour NO ACTION period.( not like that is a standard but when you have a lot of sex + you masturbate i think that could lead to Sexual Exhaustion.) ( I could be corrected if anyone thinks im wrong ) I just kept going and maybe that lead to this little problem that im having... Anyways, yesterday I ordered some herbs Muira Puama, Maca and Korean Red Ginseng, and after those im looking to test Yohimbe and Horny Goat Weed, to see if it helps me with the problem, also I am laying off Masturbation ( OR GOING TO TRY) for two weeks to see if this gets better.

P.S. I still would like to know about what you ( the community ) thinks about my penis problems... Please Reply.

If you're masturbating 3-4 times a week and experiencing sexual exhaustion at 21 you should be terrified. Go ahead and handle this as you like, however I'd caution you against taking herbal medicines without a doctor's reccomendation. The Doctor isn't going anywhere any time soon and I don't see this as any sign of a major health issue. When you decide this is something to worry about you can go and see him.

UPDATE!

I managed to get a rock hard erection tonight by watching a little porn. Once i got it I just let it go back to rest again since im afraid of ejaculating since im almost a 100% sure that Ill go back to the soft weak erections... I Still intend to let it rest for a couple of weeks, but im adding to that a doctors visit this week. This episode has really helped my mind... Now i know that im not completely useless and may have salvation.

What do you make of this?? Is getting a Rock Hard erection after having soft and weaker ones for a week a good sign??

Its hard to say. It does mean that whatever's going wrong isn't consistently an issue for you. Definately mention it to the doctor when you go in.

I had a soft/weak erection problem that was solved through taking the following supplements, replenishing key ingredients to hard erections:

1. ZINC & SELENIUM- These are crucial to good male sexual health. Take zinc and selenium supplements daily, as indicated on the labels.

2. L-ARGININE- This has been called "Nature's Viagra" for a good reason. Helps increase nitric oxide and improve blood flow to the penis. Our Walgreen's just had a BOGO on vitamins/supplements, and someone beat me to it, cleaning them out of this key to a happy, healthy hard and sustained erection!

3. MACA & HORNY GOAT WEED- More help with circulation to keep you up and going.

4. NIACIN (Vitamin B3)- Helps in the production of sex hormones and improves blood flow, especially to the small blood vessels, a friend to hardness.

5. GINGKO BILOBA- Improved blood flow and erection.

6. FISH OIL/OMEGA 3- Aids in the production of sperm and seminal fluid.

7. MAGNESIUM- Helps in nerve firing/conduction of nerve impulses.

8. SAW PALMETTO- Helps ensure prostate health and function.

ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL are the Zinc, Selenium, and L-Arginine. The rest are VERY highly recommended.

Use these supplements over the course of several days, up to a week, and you'll definitely notice harder and longer erections, especially if you've been suffering from soft/weak erections. A more natural and healthier solution than Viagra, Cialis, and the like.

Advice for you
First word of advice for you pal, don't throw away your money on crap herbs that say they treat ED, I say this because you list all the things you've been ordering/taking... sometimes adding so many new things in your system can exacerbate the issue.

I'm 21, but I've not had sexual intercourse, or oral/ hand job. I used to have crazy hard erections that I could sustain for a few hours while I jerked off with lubricant. I'm not able to reach that crazy rigid hard now, because I, like you, have a type of depression. I have tried a few antidepressants, some of which totally made me impotent and unable to get even a chub, no matter how horney I was, and others that did that at first but got better with time. The med that was least problematic in this regard was also not effective for my depressive symptoms. I am now on Procaz, for about a month or so now, and I am prescribed Adderall, which I take everyday and have for about a year now maybe.
The Adderall when taken daily like I am supposed to, does cause possible impotence or atleast a less hard erection, and the prozac can cause impotence and also always makes your sex drive weaker and your ejaculation delayed... It can take up to two hours to finally climax and sometimes, if I take the med long enough, You'll rub yourself red before you ever nut, and you probably won't orgasm... talk about depressing, ha.

From what you said, I'd either say it's from your antidepressant, if you are still taking one or it's been stopped but still in your system for a while which might be the cause of your ed, or it could be that you still have depression, which can do the same thing...

I bought a pump, it won't make you grow really or give you the complete effect you desire, but it may help...

It engorges the penis with blood artificially, yet safely. It can increase a man's girth over time and I guess for a few people it can extend length too, but in most cases, it doesn't.

It's not always easy to find a quality pump, but it's easier and probably better for men our age to try this--before you resort to prescriptions.
eg: viagra, Cialis, etc.

I think if your girlfriend is patient with you and non-judgemental and also willing to warm you up too, she might be happy with the experience regardless of penetration.


Hope this helps...

I understand the frustration, I hope that when I do have a girl, I'll be able to be hard and satisfy her.

One more piece of advice, If you do get a pump, don't be afraid to get a big one.... I'm 7-71/2" and I got an 8 inch pump, I fill it up and honestly, it won't do everything I want it to, because there isn't a lot of air to suck out if you know what I'm saying... I might eventually buy a bigger sized tube pump, because it needs to be bigger than you are to help.

A soft seven inches is fun to play with, but I want my girl to have me at that rock hard I know I'm capable of.

I hope this ed is only temporary.
