Our expert says:
Sam, there could be a number of things going on... First, the medication you are on for your BP is a potential culprit here; make sure that you have discussed the options fully with your GP (since he has already prescribed the PDE5 inhibitors, I know you have spoken about it, but make sure he has considered alternative BP medication options. Secondly, make sure that you are taking the PDE5 inhibitors correctly - it may be that you need a different dose. Thirdly, I am wondering if the 'precum' is infact an ejaculation that is not experienced as strongly as perhaps it used used to? The pressure of the ejaculate does reduce with age as does the intensity of orgasm (incidently, as I understand it these two are not always experienced together). I wonder what happens if you masturbate - what is the sensation like then? How does your erection last during masturbation? Finally, if the last few questions I have asked result in answers that you are ok when masturbating, then it may be that you have anxiety/fears about performing or about the relationship. Go the medical route first to exclude physical factors; if problems persist then I recommend you see a sex therapist. You can ask for a referral from your GP or call our helpline 0860 100 262.
