suddenly, he has stopped being able to finish.

User Profile
I have been dating my BF for 8 months.
In the first 5 months our sex was amazing and he could finish every time without any issues.
For the past 3 months, suddenly, he has stopped being able to finish.
He often gets tired and gives up.
Our sex isn't as great now. He always wants to try anal. Maybe he is not finding my vagina as pleasurable anymore. Maybe he is jerking off too much with pron? Maybe he is cheating and ejaculating elsewhere? In the past 3 months he has only ejaculated (by sex with me) only 5 times.
Underlying issues: We have been arguing a lot more in the past 3 months. He has mentioned he did steroids once a year for the past 12 years (but not this year as I do not agree with it) he said this can have a impact on it. He also mentioned this happened with his ex, where he went through a phase but overcame it.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. I am afraid this is not a medical issue but a relationship issue, you need a sex therapist or counsellor, there are many causes and one should not jump to conclusion.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
