Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you.
The two most common causes of Erectile Dysfunction in Males are Diabetic Neuropathy and Psychogenic Erectile dysfunction.
You have not mentioned any history of diabetes, but you should get your blood sugar tested. It's not that diabetes doesn't occur at this age. At your age one can have Diabetes Type 1.
Now, most likely at your age, the possibility of psychogenic erectile dysfunction is there. If you are not sexually active, you would probably be able to perform normally, once you are sexually active.
In case your problem persists even after you become sexually active, I would also advise you to get color Doppler of penile vessels.
In such situation I advise my patients following:
1. To take Methylcobalamin supplementation.
2. To use Sildenafil as on when required basis that is whenever sex is desired.
3. To cut down alcohol in case you take as this reduces erection when sex is tried after consumption of alcohol.
4. To keep blood sugars well controlled, in case you are found to have diabetes.
But these options are only to be considered, if you don't get relief once you become sexually active.
This is my best opinion for you.
You should discuss with your doctor before acting upon any advise.
