Brief Answer: Please clarify a few issues in follow up query Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for choosing WWW.WWWW.WW There are a few things I want to talk about in beginning. I understand that his desire for sex has decreased but when you have sex, how is the hardness of erection? Secondly ,is he ready to get help for improving sex life? It is possible that due to smoking, his hardness has reduced , thus reducing self image and avoiding sex. Second, please check, if he has symptoms of Depression like sadness of mood,loss of pleasure in all activities and easy tiredness plus sleep problem,appetite problem and postponing things? Have you ever said something negative about sex when he was not interested? That may have hurt him so avoiding sex. Last check, if he has erection by any means-porn movie,photographs, talking dirty, bathing together or any thing else naughty . Has he morning erections? Are you planning for a second issue so become more particular about sex? Please clarify these in your follow up query. DR SAATIISH JHUNTRRAA
