User avatar What you are describing is essentially a mild form of erectile dysfunction. I would recommend you see your doctor to have a full evaluation. There may be a cause for this that can be treated directly. If none is identified, there are medications (such as sildenafil) that help maintain/improve erections.

These medications do have some contraindications so discussing this with your doctor is important to make sure the medicine is safe for you.

Best wishes.
