Doctor: Thank you for your question. We are sorry that you are having such a distressing time with erectile dysfunction. There c ould be a number of cause of your condition. First of all, your inability to initiate and maintain an erection could be due to anxiety. Many men struggle with performance anxiety which can result in difficulty with erections. Furthermore, it is possible that you have developed insensitivity to your penile tissue due to excessive masturbation. We recommend that you refrain from masturbation for several weeks to see if this will assist you when you are intimate with your partner. There could be some medical causes of erectile dysfunction such as problems with circulation, blood pressure, or an enlarged prostate. We do not want to rule out any of these medical causes of your erectile dysfunction so we want you to follow up with your doctor to have a genital examination to be certain there are no anatomical or physiological causes for symptoms.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com with your health question.
