My boyfriend has a problem with keeping an erection. Getting one isn't so much the problem (in the beginning), but if it doesn't receive "constant attention" i.e. rubbing, sucking, etc., it goes down very quickly. And once it's down, it takes a very long time to bring it up again (by once again rubbing and such). He says he still feels aroused, but it just won't stay up.
I'm trying to convince him to see a urologist, but he doesn't want to go because he feels embarrassed. He doesn't like that he has a problem at such a young age, and he doesn't want his parents to know or anyone to see any drugs he may possibly be put on.
I have tried to tell him that it could be something really minor and simply taken care of, or if it's serious that it should be taken care of as soon as possible. Either way, he needs to see a doctor. I tried telling him to think of it for the benefits. He will have a much better (and easier) sex life if the problem can be solved, and I'm sure it will make him feel better all around.
Does anyone have any guesses as to what might be the problem? Or perhaps what I can say to him to convince him to go?
