Erectile Dysfunction: You've made a smart decision to wrap it up & use a condom when having sex. However, your erectile dysfunction may be due to loss of sensitivity from that specific brand of condoms. Try using a different brand that's thinner or (claims to) more sensitive. Of course, your ED may also be due to performance anxiety. BTW, if you haven't already received yours, ask your FamilyDoc about HPV vaccine. ...Read more

What to do if i can't keep my erection when im going to put a condom on so i think its my sex drive.. How do I increase it?

Emotional issue?: If you're able to get an erection to begin with, then your sex drive is probably ok, and the problem is likely to be emotional. Condoms reduce sensation, and if you have had lengthy, unsatisfying sex with condoms, the act of putting one on might be triggering dread of long, frustrating sex without climax. Try having your lover put it on for you in a sensual manner and/or take it off to climax. ...Read more

My couple and me are trying to have sex but when i put him the condom the erection goes down. We are both virgin. Maybe is he nervous? Help please.

Safe sex: I applaud the two of you being responsible in considering "safe" sex with a condom. Assuming that your partner is ~ your age and healthy! it is likely his nervousness that is causing his detumescence. He may have many concerns, and wearing a condom decreases his sensitivity (less stimulation). Maybe it's not the right time for the 2 of you - you should talk about it, or consider a different bc. ...Read more

My boyfriend often looses erection when it comes to put the condom or to start intercourse, his doctor prescribed him potenzine forte.What do you suggest please?

Another doctor: I suspect that you don't live in the states, or at least don't see a traditional physician. Potenzine forte is a brand of ginseng, phytosterols, tumeric, octacosanol & zinc. There are no published studies showing benefit of its ingredient either separately or together. I suggest a complete physical exam. Stress, bad lifestyle, poor health, medications, etc can cause erectile dysfunction. ...Read more

No: If none of the semen touched her vaginal area and you had a condom on when you tried to enter her, you are safe. If you aren't sure, your girl can get " plan b" at the pharmacist, and it will prevevt a preg as long as taken in 72 hours. I commend your use of condoms. Continue safe sex. ...Read more
