Erection after ejaculation

09/19/2007

Question:

After my fiance and I have intercourse and I ejaculate, I cannot seem to get another erection. There are times she is ready for "another round" and I cannot get an erection. It is not that I don`t want to or do not have the urge. It just does not happen. What can I do?

Answer:

Most men have intercourse once per evening, or per session. Commonly men age 16-25 can have a second intercourse per session. The reasons are unknown.
