Why Can't I Stay Erect After Ejaculation?

I can get an erection and perform, but after I climax it is usually an uphill battle to maintain an erection. What can I do to help with this problem?

Answer

That's how it's supposed to work. Once a man has ejaculated, he loses his erection and then enters into a refractory period, or period of rest, before he can maintain another erection. This period varies depending on the man. For further information, check out this site on erection facts.
