Hi Anonymous-

This is a type of impotence. Your husband should see a health care provider, because there are several possible causes for this, and some of them can be related to health problems.

If he is having trouble maintaining his erection it could be a blood flow issue, and blood flow issues in his genitals can mean blood flow issues in other parts of his body. It may be a hormonal problem, or fatigue or an emotional problem. But to be safe and to find a remedy, he needs to see a professional.

Men often find this very embarrassing to talk about, but if you discuss it with him as a health issue, it will help. For instance, if he was having poor blood flow to his hand and it was turning blue or going numb, he would get it checked. It's the same thing, just a different location. In health care, we deal with these issues every day, so he should not feel shy, especially since it could be a warning of a bigger problem.

It may be as simple as getting a prescription for erectile dysfunction drug, but it is important to get a check up first. We have a good explanation of impotence: https://www.empowher.com/media/reference/impotence

Please encourage him to see his health care provider, and good luck to you both.

He really should be treated by a physician. Poor circulation can cause heart attack and stroke, and herbal remedies will not fix that. Have him see his health care provider for a checkup. When he is treated for his problems, the impotence may improve.

Good luck.
