Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Hard

01/02/2008

Question:

When me and my boyfriend were going to have sex for the first time his penis whould not get hard and stand up so we couldn`t have sex. The only way it would stay hard is if I gave him oral, but as soon as I stoped it got soft again. He dosen`t know why it did that and is really embaressed about it. I never had a boyfriend do that before so why is it doing that, and how do we fix it?

Answer:

Could be either a physical problem, a psychological problem or a
combination of each.

Please see a urologist or a primary care doc to begin an evaluation.
