An erection stiffness has a lot to do with stimulation. The fact that you are mentioning that you are experiencing that it looses some of the stiffness when changing positions could indicate that you need to stimulate the penis a bit more in between positions. Furthermore stress and anxiety tends to have a negative impact on an erection – the more you stress that the penis will get softer, the bigger the probability that it will most probably loose some of its stiffness. The best is to get your girlfriend involved in the love making process and assisting you – sex is about two people sharing intimacy and enjoying the journey of pleasure together. By the sound of it, it is not your libido that is the concern, but your concern about the erection is more the problem. Go ahead and try the medication, with your partner and stop worrying about the outcome and focus more on enjoying the love making. If you do not find any positive result with the medication you could go back to your doctor and discuss it, or it might be useful to explore the possibility of consulting a psychologist to assist you through this process.
