Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

He can`t come or maintain erection

04/11/2008

Question:

I have been dating someone I have come to care a lot about. I have never had sex with a more caring person. But more and more he can`t come. Their usually isn`t a problem with his becoming erect. The problem is within minutes of pentration he loses the erection. I have tried to discuss this with him and he always dodges the issue...his back is hurting, etc. I would like to give him as much pleasure as he gives me. What should I do? How do I help him talk about this and get help?

Answer:

Start with a check up with his primary care doctor. He may need a psychologist as well.  To find a health professional in your area, please see the links below.
