Patient : Hi I'm 21 years old and have erectile dysfunction. The problem is extremely embarrassing and I need to treat it ASAP. I'm not all that experianced, I've only had sex on four different occasions so far and each time I've had trouble getting it up, and if I do get it up I quickly loose it. Now I have a releationship with a very attractive and sexual woman that I do not want to dissapoint. We attempted to "fool around" and I once again hit the same problem. I cut it short, made and excuse but she saw through it. The other problem with this is she thinks its her. Idont know what I should do. I was told cutting down the amount of times I masturbate could help, and I do smoke which I hear that is an issue. I'm working on both but I need a very quick solution that will also work in the long run. I hear. A hormone called DHEA can help, and I do have access to it, but I wanted to ask here first. Would DHEA be a good idea? And could I please get some further advice on the issue? I don't want to use pills for the specific problem like Viagra due to its side effects and possible negative outcomes it could have on my physically demanding lifestyle as a soldier. Thank you for your time.
