You may have ED: This is the classic presentation of erectile dysfunction. What you describe, early loss of erection with difficulty or inability to penetrate and maintain penetration, suggests an issue with blood flow or nerve function. If this is a new problem, it's best you be evaluated for medical causes for these symptoms. If there is curvature, peyronies disease, another cause for ed, may be present.
