Question: soft erections

 user2009 - Thu Jul 26, 2007 8:01 am

23, male..

everytime time i have sex it either goes down or its a soft erection...

i can't really hold an erection too well.
and rarely, in the morning or in the night does it get really hard, i find it annoying i would have to stop and get it hard again...
i went to my doctor and they said my testosterone level was fine..

and i am not feeling stressed or anything.

what can i do about this situation.

User avatar Sexual dysfunction is sometimes caused by other physical or psychological disorders. Included are diabetes, high blood pressure, vascular disease, heart disease, nervous system disorders, and depression. Medications can also sometimes affect this.

It would be worthwhile to get a complete physical exam and discuss this with your physician. Very likely he/she can help you to overcome the problem.
