Patient :Okay so I'm 20 years old and two days ago I had a girl over and was getting busy and then I realized I wasn't hard which seemed odd so I tried to give myself an erection which only sort of worked and it was too flaccid to have any sort prolonged intercourse. I had had only 1 beer that night and some marijuana (which I smoke several times a week for 2 years and have never had such a problem), so I just contributed it to my moderately confused physical state that night. I tried again in the morning and was able to get hard enough to successfully have sex and ejaculate but it still didnt feel right. I also noticed that morning (yesterday) that my genitals feel...different. Like a sort of numbness in the scrotum and penis. So I've been trying to figure out today why the hell my penis isn't working. I can still get erections but it's hard to do and only maybe 50-60% of what it is normally. And on top of all this it occurred utterly out of nowhere. I've never had any problem with this before. It can't be an STD because I've only ever had sex with one girl (other than the one mentioned above) and she had no STDs. There's no pain. I think the lack of ability to gain erections is stemming mostly from my feeling of numbness because if I try to arouse myself through my jeans (because it feels more normal than touching my numb penis directly now) I find it easier to achieve an erection. I've been looking stuff up all day and plan to go to my doctor but no one seems to be of any help. And I certainly don't think this is in my head because the sensation (or perhaps lack thereof) is very real.
