I have had ED problems for something like 4 or 5 years. They became a big issue when I was with my wife the first time we started dating, then I got a prescription for Viagra and was seeing a counselor. But then it happened again. I was working too much and was too busy for the counselor so I was using the prescription. But I ran out and I can't afford more right now. It didn't work last month, like I went limp during sex, and then I tried yesterday and the same thing happened. She's fed up and she's done with me. I don't know what to do. I am seeing a counselor next week but I don't know how to fix this. I can get hard on my own, I can even get hard when she's there but I can't have sex with it, or get hard with the assumption that there will be sex. And if it goes away it's gone and will not return. I don't know what to do. I lost weight, I saw a counselor, is there a permanent fix. Or will this be something I struggle with my entire life? I'm only 30.

Being that you just 30 yro I would say that you should be able to work with your erection problem. You seem to be able get an erection when you masturbate, therefore, you do not have ED. The meds that are on the market seems be working for you if you can get them. So you need to get online and see where you can buy at lower cost. I am not marriage counselor, but you should cut back on the solo masturbation and start including your wife in mutual masturbation. Read the book "She Comes Frist" to work on your foreplay with your wife. Get the ED thing out of your mine, this causes you some of your going limp issues. You do not have to stop masturbating, just don't fall in love with it.. ojsam
