    Hello guys,

    I've been doing NoFap for more than 250 days and it's difficult to admit there is no progress regarding my erections... I have morning when I wake up with a hard d*ck, mornings when I have wet dreams, but not all the time.

    When I try to get hard during an intercourse, this thing is impossible. I have these issues for more than 7 years and I don't know what to do anymore.

    I've been to a doctor last year before pandemic and had to do some blood tests and he said everything is good physically ,but the issues is psychical and I tried all the year to have sex with my gf and all the time my penis was flaccid.

    I don't know I will ever be able to solve this... My gf lost hope too and she's suffering the way I do too. Not sure what to do anymore guys..

    1. Both. No porn, no masturbation.
    2. I was watching normal videos like milf, lesbian, friend's girlfriend, big tits. I started when I was almost 18 and usually I was watching like 2 times a day and masturbating each time, sometimes forcing myself to orgasm even when I was flaccid.
    3. I did both tests and the doctor said I was fine physically.
    4. I tried from time to time to do kegels. Didn't make a routine out of this cause I didn't see any progress.

    Wow man, thanks for your answer! 2-3 years is a lot to recover. Not sure how to resist this situation, especially when I'm in a long term relationship with a girl that I love a lot..

    If the problem were physical you wouldn't have morning woods. Some people think of NoFap is the ultimate solution but it's not. It is, indeed, a great tool when your ED comes from excessive masturbation and use of porn, but your main root might be something different. You said you have these issues for more than 7 years now, how did you work before this long?

    Unfortunately I didn't manage to solve anything in those 7 years regarding my ED. I tried long streaks of NoFap, but with small results, like from time to time having morning wood or wet dreams. I'm still waiting for a great result to come, but it's not in my favor...

    You could try some ED pills if you need a success experience in regards to having sex with your GF.
    I suffered for 8 months with my new GF, and was not able to get it up due to psychological issues. Then I tried ED pills for a few times, and then I was able to have sex without the pills.

    What type of test the doctor did?
    Was he an urologist?

    Why don’t you try Tadalafil 2.5mg/ day for 2 months and see if you improve. You take it daily it doesn’t matter if you are having sex or not, you take it. If you feel you need to increase the dosage go to 5mg/day but no more.
    That is a basic treatment for ED. it’s been too long NoFap to see no results.

    I’m a doctor by the way.

    It seems to me like all you've done are some long streaks of NoFap, am I right? How did these issues start to show up?

    I tried some pills and indeed my penis was stronger, but only when my gf was doing me a handjob, not naturally...

    As I said above, I was using Tianli (a bottle before sex time) and I had a boner, but only after handjob. Unfortunately, it didn't last long, only a few minutes when I was in and then my gf had to repeat the handjob.

    Yep, most of my streaks were like ~6 months. The issues started in 2014 with my first gf. I thought it wasn't attractive enough for me and then we broke up. Now, I'm so in love with my current girl that I don't think it's her fault so I'm doing my best to stay away from porn.

  10. Maybe the reson is not porn but hormones. Do you smoke? Do you have a high blood pressure? Are you overweight? Do you lie a lot in bed?

    I'm not smoking cigarettes or similar stuff. From time to time I smoke some shisha, but it has nothing to do with this 'cause before when I didn't smoke I had the same issue.
    My blood presure from what I know was normal all the time.
    I am a bit overweight, but I had times when I was on a normal weight the issue was still there.
    I don't lie in bed all day, I'm going to the gym 4 times/week and working from home.

    Hey man,I'm a doctor myself.
    Have you considered speaking to a psychologist about the problem? There's probably an underlying anxiety issue which is turning into depression. On a scale of 1-10, could you rate your stress levels for me?

    I didn't talk to a psychologist about this. I feel so insecure about talking with a stranger face to face about this issue, it scares me a lot to be honest. Regarding your question, I would say the levels of stress depend on the day. There are days when I feel ok, days when I'm overwhelmed, but the main issue is that I feel like sh*t when I realize I'm not able to be hard even after almost 1 year of no porn, no maturbation..

    And a short update about my story, I was using Tianli for a while, it worked great for most of the time, but I think my body is getting used to this liquid and erection are getting weaker even with that... I don't know what to do from now on and I'm starting to think this issue will never end. My balls are huge right now and I wanna masturbate for the simple reason the get them back to normal. It sucks to be in this situation...

    Hey Andreid!
    That situation sure sounds rough. Was there a time in your life where you had continuous sex without issues?
    Greetings, RL

    Hey there,

    Unfortunately I was never able to have sexual contact with no issue at all. I had the problem the first time when I tried it at 19 and it's still present.. I had long streaks of no PMO (4 months, 5 months, 6 months, 8 months) and now it's the longest one I had and there is still no great result to say that I'm finally cured. I'm waiting for years to say I'm free and to finally post something on Success Stories to become a voice for people out there who are still struggling to solve this.

    After those 250 days, do you feel any attraction to regular girls? Not the ones that are obviously good looking but the regular ones that normal pretty or cute? Have you ever been truly physically attracted to any girl that you had any sort of intimate relationship with?

    Yes, I was attracted to simple girls, I kinda like those more than those girls that are trying to look better than avarage. But, the thing is, I am in a relationship and I am attracted to my gf. I don't know what to do become a regular dude with a boner and I see a girl or feel it. Sometimes, I wish I was the opposite, the guy that is always horny, no matter what type of girl and who is always hard. I'm starting to believe that my life is wasted and there is nothing to be done...

    I don't want to be rude, but how confident are you? Do you like seeing yourself in the mirror?

    I think @Imijones has probably given the best advice. Sometimes you need to do something drastic to change your life for the better.

    I went bungee-jumping while being horribly afraid of heights. It's always the things that are the most difficult that give the highest reward.

    I think I'm your case it really does sound more and more like an underlying issue
