DEAR DEIDRE: TWO months ago, I lost my erection in the middle of sex with my wife.
This has never happened before and I was really embarrassed and upset, despite her reassurances.

Now I’m very worried it will keep on happening.
It doesn’t make sense. I’m really fit for a 55-year-old, I go running or work out five times a week and I am not that overweight.
Now, even though I still fancy my wife, who is 54, I feel anxious and try to avoid sex whenever she suggests it.
DEIDRE SAYS: Losing your erection will have been worrying. But it really does happen to almost every man at some point in their lives.
Often, the problem is put right by agreeing to abstain for a few weeks. Then your erection should return naturally. Anxiety makes the problem worse, creating a vicious cycle.
It is important to see your GP to rule out any underlying medical cause, especially if this is a new issue. Read my support pack about Erection Problems, which explains the self-help steps you can take to put things right.
