Difficulty in erection. Reason?

My 26 year old boyfriend has been having issues maintaining an erection for the last 5 nights. He can get it hard then it just goes soft. He said he s noticed there isn t as much pressure when he s peeing either. He hasn t had this issue before. We usually have sex every night since we ve moved in together (about 4 months) and it just started happening 5 days ago, but it has happened all 5 nights. (He assures me it isn t my fault) what could it be?

Hello dear..
Regarding the problem of failure to maintain erection (Erectile dysfunction), it is due to decreased blood flow to the penis.
And the medications like Sildenafil citrate (Viagra), etc increase blood flow to penis & maintains erection..
Moreover, performance can be enhanced by having a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts & honey.
He can also try oil massaging of also increases blood flow & maintaining erection.
One more thing..avoid consuming any Over The Counter drug that claim to cure ED or improve may be harmful.
Also he should avoid stress, do regular exercise, meditation, think positive & stay happy.
Wishing a Healthy Life.
Take care.
