Hello are you there?
I have a private question to ask
I had a blended vegetable and fruit drink a week ago and I am experiencing some weird symptoms
I have some levels of stress in my life which is normal, but I have never had this problem and I need help, I have a hard time keeping an erection and my core muscles feel kinda numb and its hard to poop, my girlfriend thinks I am not attracted to her but its hard to keep an erection in private by myself. I have never had this problem and now its starting to scare me. I also feel constipated as my anus feels clenched and its hard to poop
My girlfriend have had a fantastic sex life up until this happened like 5 days ago. We have sex 3-5 times a week with no problems. Now My pelvic area feels numb and i feel extremely gassy but cannot fart or burp. Also, I cannot complete a full yawn as my muscles on my stomach feel extremely tight

Hi and thanks for the query,
The first thing I would love to say is, sex is mainly a matter of the mind, the psychological state has a bog role to play. It would be interesting to try to go trough your state of mind within this period before, during and after when you had this sex failure as you call, and try to see whether you could identify any distressing psychological event.
Sex at times is not all about a penetration, the psychology, excitement before going is not the actual act could be another factor. How was she dressed on that day, was there anything unusual about that day, the site where you had intercourse, was it the same or you changed, or did you have any quarrels during that period before?
For your gastrointestinal and sensational problems, The first thing to consider is your diet. A diet XXXXXXX in water and fluids, vegetables, fruits, fibre are of good and could actually help. Exercise is a good intestinal moderator and could be very helpful to reduce stress levels and improve sexual satisfaction too. Changes in sensation and muscle tightness at times could be due to changes in electrolyte levels in the system, especially blood calcium levels. Doing an electrolyte panel to detect the concentrations especially of your blood calcium could be very helpful.
I think you should not actually be very bothered about the sex event, consider the issues I mentioned, consider foreplay as an important ingredient in sex, its mainly an issue of the mind. Consider the dietary changed mentioned and exercise. Do the blood calcium levels to know whether you might need calcium or not.
Persistence of symptoms might warrant that you take an appointment with your internist.
thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
