hi i am a 17 year old male and am having a problem that im hoping i can fix. Normally getting erections has always been easy whenever ive been aroused. But recently i started going out with this very attractive girl, and suddenly (like one day everythings great, the next day everythings gone) i cant get an erection. Im a virgin and i know shes had a few partners before, so im thinking maybe its anxiety from that?? i dont know....it really starting to depress me. Its hard for me to even get one when im alone now, but im thinking(and hoping) its a mental thing because of the suddeness of it. Its been going on for a week now and the stress keeps building, i try to relax and still nothings happening. Its even gotten to the point where im not getting aroused anymore. Please somebody help me! thanks.
First of all, lots of guys go through this. Guys don't really talk about "not being able to get it up," but it happens all the time.
You're going through a pretty stressful time right now, even though it's probably fun too. It's common to experience a "dry spell" if you're in a new relationship, and especially if you've never had sex before. The stress can be powerful enough that you won't be able to jack off either.
This is totally normal.
My advice for now is to relax; this will go away. Be sure to stay clear of things that can inhibit your ability to get hard: alcohol, marijuana, cigarettes. All three of them can interfere with getting or maintaining an erection.
Certain prescription medications can also get in the way, so that can be a problem too.
Let's give this a couple of weeks and see if it gets easier.
