SO FRUSTRATED! Difficulty Maintaining/Getting Erection & im Only 19! Prostatitis?

Hi all im really frustrated. I am only 19 and i have been finding that it is difficult for me to maintain and get an erection without CONSTANT stimulation. also i find that i have lack of morning erection, often its only semi erect probably 30%. and i hear guys get random erections 10+ times a day but i hardly ever do.

here are a list of my problems

1.)Say for example i am with a girl , if i am not masturbating the entire time or if she is not sexually stimulating me the entire time, i lose my erection fast, sometimes its hard for me to get it up in the first place.
its so frustrating because i hate for her to feel i am inadequate .

I thought at first it might be sexual anxiety and that im so preoccupied with the anxiety that it prohibits me from enjoying the situation but i notice even when im at home watching porn in the comfort of my own home, when im all alone...i STILL have this problem.

2.)There have been many times where im watching porn and i dont even get an erection unless i provide constant stimulation, if i stop touching myself the erection will go away fast.


I have no idea why i have this problem, but i narrowed it down to some possible reasons. prostatitis or chlamydia?

3.) i noticed back in july-august whenever i urinated or ejaculated it would be followed by an itchy stinging sensation at the tip of my penis. also the area between my scrotum and anus would be extremely itchy and i think a bit inflamed. the itchiness in this region stopped around september and the stinging sensation after urinating also stopped around this time without any sort of treatment, but the stinging sensation after ejaculation is still there but its very mild...

I read that these are all symptoms of mild prostatitis and/or chlamydia? and i googled this and read that these two diseases can cause difficulty to maintain and/or get an erection...


also i just read another thread on this boarD:

[URL=http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=358712]http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=358712[/URL]


which said that he was over at the urology boards and the general consensus was overmasturbation (Which i can honestly say i was a victim of) can cause prostitis like symptoms...

Can anyone else who has more insight direct me please i am so frustrated and worried.??!




PLEASE help or redirect me to someone or someplace that can

should i go to my doctor or find a STD testing center???

Yeah, you and me are pretty much symptom clones (it IS kind of weird), right down to the over-masturbation part. I forced myself to go on a no-porn, no masturbation diet as of last year to see if it helped with the erectile problems (no). You're still up on me, though, no pun intended, with the 30% morning erection. I haven't seen timber in years unless I amped myself up with viagra the night before.

I'm pretty much a clone too, only 20, with 0-30% morning erection, difficulty sometimes to masturbate...only difference is that i've never tried to have sex. But recently I realized that it might be a libido problem...once I quit watching porn I don't have the urge at all. Just a reminder, I suppose you can't get too good an erection if you don't have good libido in the first place? I of course want to have sex IN MY MIND, but my body doesn't. I'm going to do labs next weekend, hopefully will find that I have low testosterone or something...I'm going crazy i just wanna find out the problem.

Damn. I'm in the same boat. Hah, my penis would be awesome if it didn't require THAT much attention constantly. Btw, I'm 23.

Re: SO FRUSTRATED! Difficulty Maintaining/Getting Erection & im Only 19! Prostatitis?

Wow, This just shed light to my Boyfriends problem also. Everytime we are about to have sex and he puts on the condom it goes soft. I help him get it back up and 1 minute after he is inside me, it goes limp again.

I really thought it was me, which made me very self conscience! He actually talked to me about it and he felt so bad about it, and was embarrased! He was wearing a condom too but it really made no difference because he had the same problems without a condom.

I don't know what to do to help him out, all my efforts failed What is wierd is that he told me he hasn't masterbated for 3 weeks....

So many people with similar problems...have you guys been masturbating a lot? I've been doing it once a day on average for many years...been cutting back since I realized I had a problem. Doesn't help.

Re: SO FRUSTRATED! Difficulty Maintaining/Getting Erection & im Only 19! Prostatitis?

Yeah, not masturbating doesn't solve anything. I don't ever go limp while inside, cause that's the "constant stimulation" I need. I guess it still could be harder though...

If your not to old, Testarome might help. But for anyone else, Did this just happen one day? or did it take time? Cuz this just started, And it just happened one day. No warning at all. And its been like this for 5 days now.

Re: SO FRUSTRATED! Difficulty Maintaining/Getting Erection & im Only 19! Prostatitis?

Then you should wait longer to see what will happen...in my case I remember having difficulty 5 months ago but I didn't really think about it. 2 months later I realized I had a problem and that it happens every time...now it's the same.

Re: SO FRUSTRATED! Difficulty Maintaining/Getting Erection & im Only 19! Prostatitis?

Can anyone in this thread, expecially the OP offer an update? I have the EXACT same symptoms as the original poster and It's been ruining me, I've been avoiding sexual contact with girls altogether and even when I'm completely alone I have difficulty getting and maintaining an erection. And when I do it's weak. The exact same scenario as the OP, except this started during sex 7 days ago, and I haven't been normal since

Please help

Re: SO FRUSTRATED! Difficulty Maintaining/Getting Erection & im Only 19! Prostatitis?

I have nearly the same problem too. I'm 21, but have had symptoms of varying intensity for about the past three years. I have constant discomfort in the genital area as well as a frequent need to urinate, painful orgasms, and terrible quality erections completely unsuitable for sex(I've tried about a dozen times with a dozen different girls all to the same complete embarrassment). My erections are just as floppy and disappointing when I masturbate and are so fleeting they will disappear completely unless under constant stimulation. Even then they are never what I would describe as "hard."

So, I recently went to see a urologist. He gave me a prostate exam as well as inserted a camera into my urethra. I was diagnosed with "chronic prostatitis" AKA the disease from hell because it is nearly impossible to cure as doctors DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT CAUSES IT. I was prescribed some antibiotics as well as a drug called "flomax" which is supposed to help relax my prostate. I was also told to take 1 aspirin a day to help reduce inflammations.

It has been slightly over two weeks now and I have seen AN improvement. The improvement being that my bladder is no longer so dysfunctional that I have to get up to urinate four times a night. However, I never cared about the constant urination -- my inability to get a proper erection has always been central and I have seen almost no improvement in that department. If there has been an improvement it has been so small that I am not sure whether or not I am imagining the results.

Anyways, I have a followup appointment in 6 weeks. I am apprehensive because from what I've read the form of treatment I'm on now is really the only viable route to treat this condition. I have decided that I will try one other form of therapy if this one does not work for me and then I definitely will kill myself. I've decided it is impossible and unfulfilling to live a life like this. How can a man have a girl? A wife? Children? A family? My life has genuinely become a nightmare.
