Young man suffering erectile dysfunction


Q: I am a 20 year old male, no prior health problem, I eat relatively healthy, get plenty of exercise and sleep, however, as of late I have been having trouble gaining and maintaining an erection. It started about 2 years ago on a fairly minimal level which I concluded to be a result of alcohol consumption or possibly performance anxiety. As of late the condition has escalated to the point at which I am unable to obtain an erection at all, even by myself. I am not sure whether this is physical or just anxiety as I am putting a lot of pressure on myself, any suggestions would be helpful? I am not too keen on visiting my GP for this problem as I find it quite personal and embarrassing.
