Question: 15 years old sudden loss of libido, erection hardness

 radric - Sat Dec 12, 2009 11:11 am

Alright to start off im 15 years old. I don't need to hear the "you shouldnt be having sex anyway" line. I'm 5'10'' 185 lbs, i exercise regularly and am in good overall health. My problem started about a week ago last thursday. Me and my girlfriend have sex pretty frequently 3-4 times a week (sometimes more or less) for the past few months now. I've always been able to get hard and ejaculate 5+ times a day i typically last about 15-20 minutes. In this last week however (8-10 days) i have generally lost alot of interest in sex, when i do get hard my erections are alot weaker (60-70% of their max give or take) i also am getting hard alot less or not all during the day unless im with my girlfriend ALSO, while having sex i feel i ejaculate alot quicker then previously before (5-10 minutes now). I feel no pain when ejaculating, a normal amount of semen comes out when i do. I feel as if sometimes mentally i want to have sex but physically my erections are no where near as frequent or strong as they once were (as little as a week ago). Last week prior to my problem i did experience some slight testicular ache in my right testicle and a dull ache in my pubic region but both of those have since gone away. im verry worried at this young age that i wont recover or be able to perform to my fullest anymore.

also i lift weights pretty frequently (3 times a week) and the only other important info i can think of is i get alot of good sleep (8-10 hours a night) i take a multivitamin and im trying to drink more water. and sometimes when i pee its in a split stream but theres no pain or discomfort.

i have not been abnormally stressed recently and i am not on any medications

User avatar Hello,You seem to be suffering from performance anxiety,a condition which can cause reduced feelings,fear of performance mainly due to peer pressure .Why not give rest to your systems which they deserve?It isalways better to be just fine rather than a performer all time.Many people who abuse the systems ultimately become victims of the abuse.Sexuality is no exception.There are who will be greats in one field but best to be normal than to succumb to peer pressure whether it be number of times,or holding the orgasm for long periods.So take heart and rest and recoup.You have years to go why worry?Ok?

You should get your balls examed for testicular torsion. You might have a 360 degree rotation on your spermatic cord.
