Has mention before that her husband is not easly turned on, and the last few times he wasn t able to get an erection , even when she went all out for a romantic evening on valentines day. She is 25. A virgin when they got married. He is 30, and he wasn t. I guess I m just concerned. And I am at a loss into what advice to give.

Hello nklein3
Welcome to HCM

Inability to achieve erection in a male may be due to a lot of reasons. As you have also mentioned that her husband is also not easily turned on so his libido may also decreased.

- Mostly in persons who fails to achieve proper erection, the reason which comes is psychological. Under conditions of stress, tension of work or anything, anticipatory anxiety of poor erection etc. individual fails to have proper erection. Some times when an individual fails to achieve erection he may become stressed for next time and anticipatory anxiety develops in him, ultimately he fails to achieve erection due to this anxiety next time and a cycle of stress and poor performance is formed. So to break this cycle your daughter has to work had. Advise her to engage in more and more foreplay. She can discuss with her husband to take medicines like Sildenafil or Tadalafil which help to increase performance. But under guidance of doctor only.
- Secondly get his testosterone levels checked, as low levels may be reason of poor libido and erection.

Hope I cleared your doubt.
Take Care
Good Luck

Hi,welcome to HCM, Cut down on smoking, alcohol, and illegal drug use.

Get plenty of rest and take time to relax.

Exercise and eat a healthy diet to keep good blood circulation.

Use safe sex practices to prevent HIV and STDs.

Talk openly to your partner about sex and your relationship. If you cannot do this, counseling can help.

Couples who cannot talk to each other are likely to have problems with sexual intimacy. Men who have trouble talking about their feelings may find it hard to share their anxiety about sexual performance. Counseling can help both you and your partner.
