Question: Problem after an "intercourse"

 slyva777 - Mon Jul 09, 2007 8:13 pm

Whats up! I am a male, just in the middle of my 22nd year on this earth and here it is i got a little problem.My background:Played sports, healthy eating, nutrition, morning "wood" no problems whatsoever. On july 1, i have tried to have an intercourse with a lady. It felt disgusting because she was over over weight. I put a condom on my penis. We did not have an intercourse because my penis went down. Since july 1, i don't have a morning "wood", i have a hard time getting a boner. Maybe it is psychological problem but how long its going to last? Will it affect me in the future? Right now i am taking L-arginine which is a natural booster for Nitric Oxide, ZMA(zinc, magnesium, aspartame) it gives testosterone level go up. But they are not helping me to get back to normal. Any advise will help!Thanks

User avatar Given the way your problem began it is quite likely that your issues are psychological. (This doesn't mean your "crazy".) You may want to consider seeing a psychologist or talking with your doctor about this aspect of things. Sometimes an outside perspective can help unlock what is going on.

Best wishes.
