    I have erections that last a few seconds, then they quickly go away and then it’s really difficult to get it back up...
    It might be worth mentioning that when I get morning wood (which isn’t often), my erection tends to last a few minutes instead of a few seconds, but it quickly goes away as soon as I urinate.

    There was a period where I started taking antidepressants, I had almost no sexual desire...up to the point where I was beginning to doubt whether I was still heterosexual. However, I haven’t been using these medications for at least a few months. But now I can hardly get it up while watching or being stimulated. When it’s up it isn’t completely hard, certainly not enough for vaginal penetration.
    I am currently taking no medication (except for a couple of ibuprofen a day since I get migraines a lot); the only recreational drug I have used in excess is cannabis, which I have stopped using for a few weeks. I have normal blood pressure, and I get an average amount of sleep.
    From this information, could anyone identify the source of the problem or a potential solution? Is there some restorative action I can take?

    R-U really 19? If so, the problem is probably not physical. First of all, what turns you on? What do you whack off to? Second, what are you doing in partner sex?

    From what you described nobody can say for sure what's causing the problem or what the best fix could be. I would guess that it's physical, probably chemical, but I'd suggest starting with your regular doctor and getting a complete physical and blood workup, including a check of testosterone levels. Be sure you tell him of your problems as thoroughly as possible.

    Juicy B, I'm pretty desensitized to porn, I usually need to see vaginal penetration and hear a good deal of moaning from the girl.


    Joe: Unfortunately I am overseas and I'm not coming back for a few months so I won't be able to schedule an appointment with my doctor for a while (I'm on an island and there are no local doctors that have Viagra). however I have purchased and started taking 50 mg zinc and 900 mg saw palmetto daily in hopes that this will have some type of positive effect. While I am waiting to return home, is there anything else I can do in the meantime?

    Does this happen when you are with a woman.... or just happen when you are thinking about masturbating to some type of stimuli?

    Okay first off, how long have you been off the antidepressants? The reason I ask is because it takes a good amount of time for them to get out of your system. The best advice that can I can give is to speak with a DR regarding your issue, there are many things in life that can play a factor. The medication you were taking, prior drug use etc..
    Is this typical for a 19yr old, well no it isnt. Sounds like you have alot or did have alot going on. Please make an appt and speak with a Dr regarding this problem.
    Wish you the best!!
