DEAR DEIDRE: MY penis keeps disappearing into my abdomen and it’s ruining my relationship.
It tends to happen when I’m stressed or nervous, and it can take up to an hour for it to return to normal.
My girlfriend and I have been together for three years, and this never used to be a problem. She’s 27 and I’m 28.

My team and I are working safely from home but we are here to help you as always.
We have always had a really active sex life, getting intimate five or six times a week.
But during lockdown I gained two and a half stone and now I weigh more than 17 stone.
As the pounds piled on, I got more self-conscious about taking my clothes off, so we haven’t had sex in months.
My partner understands but I’m worried she’ll walk if I can’t get it working again.

Your GP can check the cause, so it’s important you talk to them.
They will also be able to recommend healthy and sustainable ways to lose weight.
