Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Loss of Penile Sensation



I am 52 years and was circumcised at 9 years. From recently I am not having any sensation (penis shaft and head) during sexual activity. This state is not continuous as the situation becomes normal within a few days. It is also noticed that this situation prevails mostly when the stomach is bloated, i.e. lower abdomen is pressed with gas or air. What could be the real cause, and what should be done to stop this loss of feeling during sexual activity?


This is very difficult. Perhaps there are medical issues like diabetes. Please see your primary care doctor.
