Doctor :   Your porblem is not unique. There are many young men who suffer from similar erectile issues. Most importantly do not de spair. 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.
