     I am a 56 years old, just before I ejaculate I lose my erection. I also am producing less semen then I was only a few years ago.

     This happens when I masturbate or with my wife.

     This has gone from a once in a while problem,to a much to often problem.

     Is this something that happens with age?

    Hi Andrei

     

    An erection occurs as a result of sexual excitement and/or physical stimulation. The fact that you are losing your erection prior to ejaculation suggests you are unable to sustain the level of arousal for some reason. As this is happening more frequently it sounds like something of a vicious circle. The more concerned you are that it may happen, the more it does.

     

    You don't say how long you are able to sustain an erection. Equally, there may be things going on in your life (anxiety, stress, medications, lifestyle issues) that could be affecting or distracting you? Has sex become a chore? Is it regular or irregular? There are any number of questions that could be asked. I wonder if you have any particular views yourself?

       I am sorry for taking such a long time to respond to your reply to my question.

       The problem with losing my erection continued even after changing  what I was eating and drinking.Quit soda,most sweets.

       I have very little stress at this time.

       My doctor has put me on pills to lower my blood pressure and I seem to have a little improvement.

       Could the blood pressure pills cause an improvement?

      I only received sex from my wife twice a year for the last 5 years. Now I lose my erection just on the verge of ejaculation. What can I do to stop losing my erection?

    I have the same issue for years, and I'm sure it's not emotional, it's physical.

    I am a sugar addict, but don't have diabetes.

    Saw Palmento and zinc can help increase semen, but the very strange, right at ejaculation issue is persistant.

       I have given up most foods and drinks with added sugar but the problem still persists.
