Sex Q & A

Sometimes my guy has trouble maintaining an erection. Does this mean he's headed for a full-blown impotency?

Probably not, says Jed Kaminetsky, M.D., clinical assistant professor of urology at the New York School of Medicine. "If his erections are sometimes normal and sometimes not," he says, "then the problem is probably due to situational stress." Alleviate the stress-the very thing a guy on the brink of marriage may be under-and you often solve the problem. So things are likely to look up (ahem) as soon as the wedding's over. What can you do until the stress abates? Urge your fiance to see a urologist. According to Dr. Kaminetsky, he may be temporarily prescribed a low dose of the love-drug Viagra.
