A:   Your porblem is not unique. There are many young men who suffer from similar erectile issues. Most importantly do not despair. Most erectile dysfunction issues result from psychological factors, however, a physical disease affecting the penis must first be ruled out. It is best to talk to physician with whom you are comfortable so that he/she may examine you as well. Once a physical disease has been ruled out there are a number of techniques that can be employed to help you work though this issue.
