Patient: I’m 16 years old and am experiencing problems getting an erection at home and with my girlfriend. What is wrong with me !

 

 

Symptoms: Cannot get or maintain erection

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.I think that you have some sort of nerve disorder or a venous or filling disorder of th e penis. Please see a Doctor and get a venous filling test done. Also get a nerve examination done which will test the ilio-inguinal nerve. This is the nerve involved in the erection of the penis. So, see a Doctor as soon as possible.Hope this helps you.
