Recently when my boyfriend and I tried to have sex, he couldn't get hard. And it happened the next day too. We're both starting to worry a whole bunch; is this serious? What's going on down there?

Is he under a lot of stress lately? Eating healthy? Sleeping enough?

Sometimes we think we want to have sex, and our bodies just don't co-operate ... for whatever reason. Maybe he just wasn't really 'in the mood'. There's no real way of telling ...

Right now, i'd say just take the pressure off ... If it happens, great If not, that's okay too ... There are plenty of other sexual activities you two could participate in w/o him requiring an erection

Also, thinking about having sex can make the erection go away. Don't know why, but happens to me, we can do whatever we want but if I think about having sex (even if we're not) it just goes.

FYI: ED: Why you don't have to get so down about not getting it up.
