There are many reasons why you can’t get your man up, the most common of which is psychological. This means it’s all in the head. You are allowing stress, anxiety, and pressure to take over your brain and body, instead of going with the flow. Keep in mind that your penis needs an ample supply of blood flow to get it up.
Stress and anxiety change normal blood flow, thereby affecting your erections. Aside from psychological issues, erectile dysfunction could also be a physical issue.Erections could also be affected by hormones or nerve endings. If you can’t get it up, the best you could do is to discuss this with your doctor to determine the exact cause.

However, if this curvature comes with painful erections and uncomfortable sex, then this requires medical attention. Up to 120,000 middle-aged men are diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease every year.
This is caused by plaque buildup or scarring on the inside your penis. This could also be the result of an injury or trauma down south that didn’t heal properly. However, don’t rely on these reasons alone. Even if you didn’t hit your member, as soon as you noticed an unusual curve down south, then you should see a doctor right away.

Fact: Men orgasm faster than women do. However, if you reach the big O within one minute from penetration, then you have a big problem. This is called premature ejaculation, or PE. This is when you have an orgasm within a minute of penetration.
It could be either a lifelong condition or something you just acquired. Whatever it is, this will surely bring you a feeling of distress and anxiety inside the bedroom. You might also start saying no to sex.
Premature ejaculation is not a biological issue. However, your psychological state could also play a major role inside the bedroom. Medications that slow down ejaculation process could help address PE. Counseling could also help you prolong the penetration process. If you are one of the many men who experience PE, make sure to talk to your partner about this, as well.

Although you have no issues getting or keeping your man up, you can’t seem to let go of that big O, especially when doing it with your ladylove.
Delayed ejaculation is not a result of an abnormality going on inside your body. This happens when you spent too much time inside your bedroom and your man down there looks for the same stroke when you’re having sex.
Medications such as antidepressants and high blood pressure pills could also cause the delayed ejaculation. Limiting your masturbation session could help solve your ejaculation issues. Address any physical or psychological issues to help you get off easily. You also need to teach your body and let it experience a different feeling of sensation to be able to enjoy sex more. It’s going to take some time. Be patient.
7. Blood In Your Semen

Don’t worry. It’s not cancer, though it won’t hurt to schedule that trip to the doctor, especially if it doesn’t go away on its own.
Blood in your semen could mean different things. It could be an infection in the prostate, inflammation, and stones in the ejaculatory ducts, among others. Most of the time, it is nothing major, especially when it doesn’t come with other symptoms, such as blood in your urine. Relax. It will go away on its own.

Antifungal creams and taking antifungal drugs could help get rid of yeast infection. If your partner has yeast infection, make sure to use a condom to minimize the risk of transmission.
9. A Broken Penis
Most experts will argue that although an erect penis is called “boner,” a man’s penis doesn’t have bones; hence, it is impossible to break something, which doesn’t have bones. This is a good point; however, breaking your penis does happen. It might happen to you if you’re not too careful. What “breaks” is the corpus cavernosa or the cylindrical tubes, which fills with blood to keep your man down south erect.
If you love rough sex and enjoy positions, such as doggie style or cowgirl, then you are at a higher risk of breaking your penis. Banging too hard could rupture and cause blood to fill your member. This could lead to pain, swelling, and if left untreated, permanent deformity or loss of sexual function. Unusual situations don’t mean they are impossible to happen. In case you found yourself stuck in a serious penis situation, make sure to bring yourself to the emergency room as soon as you can. Don’t be embarrassed. The more you put everything in your own hands, the worse it could get.
