What is the cause of fluctuations in erection?
Q: I am a 28-year-old male. I got married 5 months back. I do not get the lubrication on the penis after the initial phase of foreplay even though I get an instant rock hard erection. If we indulge in a longer session of foreplay I lose erection and then it becomes impossible for me to regain it. If I insert it immediately and start the process of intercourse than I can maintain the erection and complete the process successfully. What is the reason for this unusual pattern? I am unable to comply with the foreplay demands of my partner. Is it a case of erectile dysfunction? For the last four years I have been working night shifts and return home at 3 in the morning. Is the problem due to that? We do have intercourse, but it becomes frustrating as it is devoid of foreplay.
A:There is nothing wrong or unusual with you. In such a situation, it is best to have only brief foreplay, have penetration and then continue to have intercourse along with other activities that you would have done in a long foreplay. Don't worry about it. Worrying will only make the situation worse.
