Has this ever happened to your hubby?

On a rare occasion my dh cant 'get it up' even if he is in the mood. He is 26. Is it ok for this to happen sometimes? (like a few times a year--not weekly or monthly)..
Should he go to the dr. or can the "big man" be tired sometimes & just not want to perform-no matter what the *ring master* says.

  • It happens. If it happens on a regular basis, then it's a problem.

  • i don't know about not "getting it up" but i do know that once or twice a year my husband can't finish once he's gotten there...if you get my drift...usually it is when he is extremely stressed or tired. could this be a possibility with your husband? maybe hes just stressed so much that even when he wants to in his head, the rest of him doesn't or is too tired to cooperate?

  • Maybe stress, it's never happened with hubby and I...but... he said, it could be stress.

  • No, this has never happened to my DH but it did happent to my cousin's. Turns out he had prostate issues, so it's worth getting it looked into.

    Good luck!

  • I don't believe it is a problem, unless it happens more frequently. It sometimes just happens...

  • My SO is 23 and couldn't get it up once and he felt AWEFUL but it has never happened again. Though he did worry bout having sex for a while because he was embarrassed but it happens. we have been together 2yrs and its only happened once

  • if it's occasionally, esp if he's been drinking, it's no big deal. if it happens regularly, he needs to see a doctor about it. in the meantime, if ya'll are really eager to have sex, he can use a cock ring to help things along.
