Patient : I am a 24 year old male in excellent health, about a month or so ago I start having issues in the bedroom. My wife and I would start foreplay and I would get hard and after a while I would get soft, even if she stopped kissing or exciting me for a few seconds. (Now mind you before this I had no problem getting hard and staying very hard, she would start kissing me and I would get hard. Now it seems like it takes forever and the erection is very soft) This happen once and I thought nothing about it, but then during the day and such I started to not have any sexual thoughts which was strange. I have always been a sexual person, I never had a hard time get aroused and I masturbate on a pretty regular bases and have great sex with my wife once or two a day. Over past month I have little no desire to be sexual or to have sex, I don't have any sexual thoughts and I continue to have intermittent erections when trying to have sex with my wife. She is very frustrated about this and thinks that I am not attracted to her any more. I know that I still am very, very attracted to her it just seems that my libido is completely gone and I don't know why. Then a few times in the past couple of weeks I have gotten a burning sensation in my penis after having sex with my wife(mind you we always wear protection and neither of us have any STDs or STIs). It would hurt for a while and then go away after about 20 minutes, then last nIt lasted for about 30 minutes and then went away. The strangest part was my wife and I didn't have any sexual interaction the day before and I had been drinking plenty of fluids that day. I really don't know what is going on and if just need some answers, this is so frustrating and embarrassing to me. It is hurting my relationship with my wife and slowly becoming a bigger and bigger problem. Any ideas?
