The symptoms you describe are not uncommon. In fact a significant number of men below the age of 40 years experience erectile difficulty. Fortunately, most erectile issues in young men are not due to any physical illness but are really psychologically related. Discuss the issue with your family physician. He/she may be able to isolate the specific issue affecting you and prescribe the appropriate treatment options that both you and your partner can participate in, to help overcome this problem.
