I have a question for anybody out there that might have any experiences with this situation. First of all I'm not a guy, my boyfriend has been having problems for a while with being able to have a rigid erection (since we got together 12 years ago), but now for the last 9 months or so it has gotten a lot worse. He can become erect but by the time he starts to insert his penis starts getting limper until eventually it falls out, and he has not been able to have an orgasm. He gets to a point where he feels like he's on the edge and then the feeling is just gone and he can't come. He's getting very anxious and depressed about this and I want to help if I can. He's tried Cialis it worked the first time he took it (still limpish but able to orgasm) but after that it hasn't ever worked again. The doctor prescribed Viagra but it's just SO expensive we couldn't afford it. I believe he has sleep apnea but he won't think about getting a sleep study or equipment to help him. He has gained quite a bit of weight lately but this condition has preceded the weight gain by several years. The doctors did a stress test, x-rays, and blood work, but found nothing wrong except a slight elevation in his cholesterol. They gave him medicine and that has not effected his condition either. Could this be linked to the sleep apnea issue? He's always exhausted! If anybody out there believes that it can affect his sexual performance please let me know. It might help get him to do the testing. If there is any other information, experiences, treatments, etc. to help us it would be great if you could share your thoughts with us. The thing that makes me most curious is the fact he can get to the edge of orgasm but can't complete it. I have offered to massage his prostate because I know that is supposed to bring excellent results in orgasming, but just like a typical man he won't even think about that! LOL Thank you very much for your time and your help. EmaraldeyesView Thread
