I am living away from my wife for job reasons. only once in two years I go home. In the recent visit I tried to put a condom suddenly the erection become very soft, I could do nothing, it happened several times the same way. What could be the reason?

What do you do for sexual release while you're away from your wife? There may be a clue there. I can imagine a lot of pressure to "perform" when the opportunity for sex with your wife is so infrequent. Under the circumstances, ED is understandable. You don't mention your age or any other health conditions. ED can also be a symptom of other health problems, stress, exhaustion, etc. You might need a general health check up by your doc.

Of course I do masturbate two times a week as pressure release mechanism. Even the beginning is stronger after two or three minutes become softer (semi erect). I am 51 years old. I tried sex with my wife without condom but in the middle of sexual intercourse it became small, with great disappointment we had to sleep. After a week sex without condom was successful but its duration was 20-to-30 seconds only. In the early morning I get good erection, when I am in action it become small and my wife look at me sympathetically and combing my hair with her fingers and saying " its ok no problem " became a repeating episode. I don't what I should do. Help ? Help ?.

Sorry to hear about the problem you are having performing with your wife. I would check with a doctor. It may just be psychological, however, you should still check with your doctor to rule out anything.

If you cannot talk with your doctor about this issue I would recommend a Vacuum Therapy System. I bought one a few years back when I was diagnosed with Erectile Dysfunction. Mine that I purchased was from Pos-T-Vac Medical, however, they required a prescription, but was covered by my insurance. If you don't have a prescription you can purchase one from their sister company "Rejoyn Medical." They sell over-the-counter systems.

I love the way they work! Absolutely AMAZING! My wife delt with my problem for too long and now I feel like I have my life back!

We are here for you on here... Hope this helps! Good Luck and let us know if you have any other questions!

Try having HER put the condom on. This way the sexual touching that get us aroused continues as she does this for you.
