Patient

Q: I am a teenage boy who has just turned 15 and have recently been experiencing problems getting an erection. I have been quite stressed recently at school but nothing really more than usual, and another cause I thought it may have been is when I last had sex I felt a few seconds of pain when I pulled out too fast but nothing more. It can go up, but not fully. My girlfriend, who I have been with for 2 years, understands and is supportive of me but she does not know what it is either and its effecting my mental well being. I don't know whether its erectile dysfunction or I have fractured it, but I am too embarrassed to go to a doctor about it, and I dont feel like there is anyone I can talk to. Please help.
