Problems getting hard even when masturbating

Postby Luk7 » Mon Jun 24, 2019 9:00 am

hey,

let me start this post describing my problem from the beginning - even though it is highly embarrassing. I assume this is the only way getting some proper advice.
1. At the age of 27 now, I have never had sex.
2. There have been two situations during which I could have and wanted to have sex. However, I did not get hard.
I have been to a urologist, who assured to me that physically I am perfectly healthy. Also, I have never had any problems getting hard during masturbation.

I have started seeing a psychologist now. Of course, I am thinking a lot about my ability to get hard, lately. And I have noticed that now even during masturbation my erections are getting weaker. So today I was trying to get an erection and it got only semi-hard. This is freaking me out a bit, as it shouldn't occur - the urologist, as I said, has assured to me that my body is healthy. So I am asking you now: Is it possible that due to my anxiety/psychological issues, I am now even experiencing getting hard during masturbation? Or is this a sure sign of some physical disorder?

It can happen at any age, really. I'm 26 and have been experiencing it for years now. I can't get an erection during masturbation at all. It could be due to anxiety that you're having the issues, yes. If your urologist says you're healthy, then you're healthy. Anxiety is a big part of the reason why it happens to most men.

hey,

thx for your reply, Tyler! ... you are saying you cannot get an erection during masturbation at all? That's a little scary to me, to be honest.
What do you suggest how to tackle this problem?

Honestly, Luke, I think mine's because of medication. Lexapro is an SSRI and Geodon is an anti-psychotic. Someone recommended to me lower body exercises that would help get blood flowing. Eating right and exercising are good ways to get it going, not to mention good for you in general.

I can get an erection, but I can't hold it, and it's not a full erection.
