    I've been with my current girlfriend for nearly a year now, and at first we were taking it slow as she is a virgin. However we now want to have sex, but when it came to it I couldn't maintain an erection for intercourse. This has happened a few times now and I've made some pathetic excuse on each occasion.

    I have had plenty of sex in the past which makes this even more worrying for me.

    Also, it's not for lack of erection altogether; During foreplay I am very "hard", yet once that condom's on and I move to enter her, I just become to soft and it's irritating as hell >_<

    Should I seek medical advice or what? Or are there things I can try before that? Such as drink more water and cut back on smoking?

    Possibly that you're just nervous about it being the first time with her? Chances are once you get past that hurdle you'll be fine, it's more just the anticipation. If it's been built up for nearly a year, I guess there's just a lot of stuff you've gone through together resting on it, and that's probably in your mind. Also if you're drinking that can have a negative effect of maintaining erection.
    Maybe try and have a whole night just for you two, nothing heavy, just relaxed evening in, let things flow, should help things be less tense.

    I would refer you to this thread. It's all been discussed already: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=934512

    Well there you go, you've got your problem. You shouldn't smoke.
