When I ejaculate I lose my erection. What can I do to have another round of sex? Sometimes my erection is weak and when I put on a condom it goes. What can I do?
In the sexual excitation cycle of a man, there is a period after ejaculation when arousal is low. At that point, most men lose the erection and cannot be excited. This may last for some time. It is normal. Usually, after some time, one is able to get an erection and have sex again.
Many things affect your ability to erect, including your desire, your arousal, the circumstances and reaction to your partner. A weak erection may occur because you are not sufficiently stimulated, or because of fear, stress or psychological pressure. Losing the erection while putting on the condom (called condom anxiety) is very common. It is a reflection of your anxiety, or fear in sexual situations.
It is more common at the beginning of sexual life and decreases with experience.
You can decrease this anxiety by creating calm, relaxed conditions with your partner. If this continues, talk it over with a counsellor or your doctor.
