Dear Aunty Aurora,
For a whole month, I have not been able to have sex a second time right away with my girlfriend. I can only go once and I don’t last long.
My girlfriend and I met a year and a half ago. She is 23, I am 27.
Everything was going great. Then I noticed this change. I told her I was worried but she said I shouldn’t be because everything is fine.
The first time it happened, I tried to put it out of my mind as a blip, maybe from tiredness. The second and third times I failed to get a second erection, I panicked. Nnamdi, Ikotu-Egbe.
What you describe as a blip is pretty normal, but worrying about it will itself block responses.
Hear your girlfriend when she says it’s all fine from her point of view. Make sure intercourse is one course in a varied sexual feast.
Above all, stop worrying – and if it continues, consult a qualified medical practitioner.
