Goes soft too quickly and slow to ejaculate

I am 71 and haved always enjoyed sex but lately I have had problems staying hard long enough to complete and it takes me too long to come. I do take BP meds but do not want to take pills as they don't seem to help...

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello and thank you for contacting MSH. First of all it is perfectly normal and natural part of getting older that a man will find it more difficult to maintain a erection, not all men will suffer this and to what degree those that do will vary. Sometimes, however, erectile dysfunction is related to an underlying condition and this could either be a physical or psychological one. Physical issues include - deterioration of the arteries (this is more common in older men), diabetes, smoking, alcoholism, overweight, hormone problems. And some Psychological issues include - anxiety/nerves, relationship problems, depression, exhaustion, stress, childhood abuse.

We would suggest talking to your GP to discuss this, so they can establish which issue it is,

especially if this has happened abruptly. Once any underlying factors are identified, your doctor can suggest appropriate treatment options. For example: If loss of erection is related to depression, psychotherapy alone or in combination with antidepressant medication may help. If you're diagnosed with an unusually low testosterone level, treatment options may include testosterone replacement therapy. If a certain medication is contributing to loss of sex drive, your doctor may suggest an alternate drug. Remember to be open and honest with your doctor. The more you can tell him or her about your erection issue, the more effective treatment is likely to be.
