Weakened orgasim

I am 56 over the past few years my orgasms do not seem to be as enjoyable and I seem to ejaculate less fluid. I find it hard to get erect unless I watch porn. I still find myself getting aroused mentally when I see my wife undressed but when we make love it take ages to get aroused.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Unfortunately as you are probably aware, some men will find as they get older, more difficult to establish and/or maintain an erection, and a sense of lose of libido. This can be for a variety of reasons which fall under two categories, Physical reasons and psychological reasons.

Physically - Alcoholism, drug abuse, obesity, anemia, Hyperprolactinaemia (a rare disorder where the pituitary gland produces too much of the hormone prolactin), being on certain prescribed drugs, Low testosterone level,Any major disease such as diabetes.

Psychologically - depression, stress and/or overworked, childhood issues, relationship issues/concerns.



The best thing to do would be to see you GP, they should hopefully be able to diagnose which of the above could be the issue, and either deal with the issue, or refer you to a specialist in that field. I can understand discussing such issues with a GP can be difficult, but if you want to move on from your issue it would be you best route forward. Please get back in touch if you have any further questions.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello and thanks for your question. After having sex, when the penis ejaculates sperm it is perfectly normal and natural for the penis to then lose its erection, this happens to nearly all men so please do not worry. But after a short period of rest, most men should find that with further foreplay and sexual activity that you will be able to get an erection again and be able to have sex another time if that is what you and your partner wish. However you say after half an hour rest it still does not stand. Maybe you need longer, and the fact that you are worried and stressed about not being able to perform again is having a psychological effect on your body and penis thus preventing it to get erect. The fact that you are able to have sex and get an erection first time shows that there is probably nothing wrong with your penis. I understand you are keen to have sex again soon after but you may be one of those people who just take longer to recover. If later that day or next day you are able to have sex then again I don't think there is much wrong with your penis. Maybe talking to a professional sexual therapist/counsellor you may find by discussing this it may help. If you live in Swindon we can provide this service for free, please get in touch if this is the case.

Try not to stress of put to much pressure on yourself to be able to perform again, like I said it is perfectly normal and natural for this to happen and your partner should hopefully understand this. Your body and penis need a period of rest after sex. We hope this has helped with your concern.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Your problem is obviously very worrying for you: but you are not the first man to have it, and with help things will get better. From what you have said there there three things that sound important.





She is your first. Without experience it can be difficult to make sex work really well, because you have to learn and the person you are with may not be able to teach you. It may help a lot to discuss what you do with her, to find out what she likes, and to let her know what you like. Talking in confidence with a good friend who has plenty of experience can also help. If this isn't easy, try asking your doctor for referral to a professional





You say you are working hard and are stressed. Even when sex has been good and going well, this can be enough to ruin things! You may even have reached a point where you are worried and anxious that you will lose the erection and this, by itself, can cause it to happen! Try to relax, get good sleep, agree with your fiancee to avoid sex for a few days and then put aside some time to have slow, enjoyable sex – don't rush to penetrate her, have plenty of foreplay. If you find that you ejaculate very quickly when she touches your penis, ask her to stroke and caress other parts of you while you use your hands and mouth to pleasure her. Again, there is professional help if you need it and you can ask your doctor for a referral

Chlamydia, impotence and infertility

hello i am a 29 year old male, lately my libido has diminished as well as my potency has reduced to near impotence. Actually i can hardly have full erection and maintain it long like i used to. However, what worries most is that i could've lived with the horrible chlamydia for more than a year. I am worried to near death that it has turned me impotent as well as infertile. how long is "if left untreated for long"? please do advice me.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hi, from your message it's clear you need to get checked out for clamydia if for no other reason that to put your mind at rest. Go to your local STD / STI / sexual health clinic (if you're in the UK you can find your closest clinic by following this link) where they will test you and treat you if you have it. If you are in UK you might be able to get a home testing kit with follow-up support.





The general advice seems to be to test each year or change of sexual partner, which would indicate that serious infertility issues take longer to emerge. As you say it has been more than a year you really should get tested.





Impotency does not seem to be associated with chlamydia and it may instead be caused by your worrying: so get tested and treated if necessary, and this will probably help with your libido issues too. Remember also the other things that can affect libido, like smoking, diet, exercise, stress, alcohol and medication. A healthy body helps build a healthy sex life.
