Dear Thandi,

You do not give much information here. You seem to be describing what sounds like an incident of erectile dysfunction. There are a number of possibilities.

You do not say if this is the first time this has happened. You do not say if this happened from the start or if it happened when you tried to have a 2nd or 3rd round. You do not say if anything happened in your relationship around this time or if anything happened during the sexual encounter. You do not mention how old your partner is or if he has any medical conditions and if he uses any medication.

There are many things that can cause a man to experience problems with getting and keeping an erection. It could be stress, demanding too mant rounds, being ill, a side affect of medication, due to emtional challenges in the relationship etc.

It could be helpful to see a doctor or sex therapist to do a proper assessment.
