I'm 22 years old and have been having difficulties getting

Patient

Q: I'm 22 years old and have been having difficulties getting and maintaining firm erections for a months now. I have done 3 pro hormone cycles in the past two and a half years the most recent I finished almost 4 months ago. I also smoked marijuana almost every day from the time I was 17, but stopped for a month now with no improvement. I saw a doctor and got a full blood panel done and all of my hormone levels were fine according to him. I have some tightness and distant pain in my lower stomach that seems persistent. I don't get full morning erections either. The tightness in my stomach seems to be directly connected to the erectile issues but the doctor I saw pretty much made it seem like no but deal...do I wait it out even more? 4 months seems like a long time. What else could be the cause? I am not overly stressed nor am I depressed.
