Question: Problem maintaining erection
|562duece - Mon Oct 22, 2007 6:59 pm||
i'm 18 years old. im kind of confused on whats goin on.i can get an erection easily but when im with my girlfriend i do get an erection but when i put a condom on it goes away for some reason. i masturbate at least once everday and i smoke a few cigarettes every other day. i think its because of stress or im worried that i wont be able to maintain my erection or i wont be good.

Stress or anxiety can have dramatic effects on a man's ability to maintain erection. It is very likely this is contributing to your problem if you are feeling anxious.
Often a counselor can help with this. Your doctor may also be able to direct you to a good psychologist.
