Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for your query. Anxiety symptoms related to a particular situation involving your action for eg an intimate act as in your case is referred to as performance anxiety. This is a symptom of a specific situation-related anxiety disorder, similar to an examination-phobia. This requires a thorough psychiatric evaluation of the frequency and severity of your symptoms. A comprehensive management plan for you would involve supportive counselling, anti-anxiety drugs and psychotherapy (eg exposure and response prevention).

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

From your description, it appear that you have performance anxiety (sexual anxiety).

In future proceed for physical intimacy slowly and with comfort. If symptoms persist, then you can get yourself evaluated by psychiatrist for cause and treatment of anxiety.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
