  • Your should have him make an appointment with a Urologist, they specialists in the urogenital system in men and could help him and since urologist see problems like this everyday there is no reason to be embarrassed. But he should be seen because it could be a side effect of a more serious illness.

  • Thanks everyone. We tried BDing again today and he still couldn't keep it up. We haven't BD'd since Saturday now! I talked to him again about seeing a doctor. He's reluctant, but I think he's starting to realize that it could be something serious. Thanks for the tip about the urologist, and the article as well. I'll talk to him again.

  • Well at this point a little "performance anxiety" may be coming in to play too.

    I understand that this could indicate a serious health problem, but on a lighter note, only being able to have sex every 2-3 days wouldn't be a "problem" in my book.

  • Yeah, I'm sure you're right about the "performance anxiety" part. He gets really frustrated when it doesn't work out.

    I do feel kinda silly crying about only being able to BD once every 2-3 days when I know there are people out there who can't even do it that frequently, but at the same time we are newlyweds and with our conflicting work schedules we have to take our chances when we can get them, so we can't always do it when he is able, and when we can do it he frequently isn't able. What also worries me is that it didn't used to be like this. We had sex before marriage, and it never mattered how often, he didn't have this problem. It also seems to be lasting longer (this last time it took 4 days). So I really want him to see a doctor and find out what has changed. He hasn't been in two years, so he's way overdue anyway.
