Loss of Erection

During foreplay, I get a rock hard erection, but when it comes to penetration, I seem to loose it. I am now scared to try in case I loose it again and my girlfriend starts the think it is because of her. What can I do? I am scared to go to the doctors.
I bought some erection cream from the sex shop but this is useless. I have tried herbal remedy but nothing.

Re: Loss of Erection

It sounds like you are worrying about it too much. I believe that the stress of wondering if it wil happen again will make it happen again. Sweet hey? Maybe you should just do the foreplay, make your girlfriend orgasm without intercourse, and then if you are still 'rock hard' have sex. If you are going soft, have the plan to stop after foreplay then cuddle with your woman.

This is really important though....If it happens again, you have to talk with your girlfriend. Let her know that it is your problem and it has nothing to do with her. My husband got soft while trying to penetrate and it made me feel like a horrible woman. I mean what good am I if I can't make my husband hard. The times it has happened we had long foreplay and he explained to me that he was worn out. It was really important that he explain to me that it wasn't me. Just telling me "It wasn't you" does nothing. Hey your girlfriend might surprise you and suggest shortening the foreplay. She might have some awesome alternatives for you two. Keep her in the loop. She shouldn't feel like you are hiding something... Good luck.

Re: Loss of Erection

First of all I'd try not thinking about yourself or what you're feeling. Think about how much you want her to feel good. Don't think about how big you are or how hard. Think about her.

If that still isn't working just do what ever you can to "help" her. Forget yourself and the parts of your body that don't seem to be reacting the way they should. You never know something might just come up so to speak.

Re: Loss of Erection

I had the exact same problem with my partner, and Viagra was the temporary solution.
After that we related the problem to the fact that when he is tired he can't get it hard. So try to sleep well and don't worry about it. This is a much more common problem than you could think.
