Could stress be causing my sexual problems ?
I have recently started trying to have sex with my new girlfriend. Whenever we are participating in 'foreplay' I can never seem to get a full erection, and when I do, it quickly fades. In my previous long-term relationship, which was four months prior to this, there was never a problem. However, now that my finals at college are close, I feel there could be a link to this, but I do not feel under extreme pressure. Also, I have found it increasingly difficult to maintain concentration upon certain things, and often find my thoughts drifting onto other matters completely irrelevant from the task at hand. Do you think that my concentration levels are something to do with my 'inability' in bed? Do you think some kind of yoga could perhaps help to 're-focus' myself? Or do you believe it is some sort of physical problem?
