Your description is detail-free so I don’t have much to go on. But for erection loss, aka erectile dysfunction (ED), here are some suggestions:
He should have a check-up. Sometimes ED is the first significant symptom of potentially serious health problems, for example, diabetes and heart disease.
Does he smoke? Smoking narrows the arteries, including those that carry extra blood into the penis for erection. Smoking is strongly associated with ED. But quitting may eventually restore some function. For help quitting, he should talk to his doctor?
Is he overweight? If so his risk of ED goes up. He should lose 10 percent of his body weight and see if that helps. It often does.
Does he consume more than two alcoholic beverages a day? If so, he should cut down on his drinking. Alcohol is the world’s #1 drug cause of ED.
Many people drink when under stress. Stress and anxiety are major contributors to ED risk. They narrow the arteries. Potentially ED-inducing stressors include relationship problems and job, family, and money issues.
For more on erection problems, read about Healthy Lifestyle and Erections, Erection Myths, Balky Erections or ED?, ED causes, and ED treatment.
If the articles don’t provide sufficient relief, then I would recommend a sex therapist. For more on sex therapy, read the article. To find a sex therapist, visit the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, the Society for Sex Therapy and Research, or the American Board of Sexology.
