Patient : I am a male, 18 years of age and it seems that I no longer have the ability to obtain an erection. I had been having great sex for a little over two years until just recently (maybe 2 or 3 months), I noticed that even when something "turns me on" I usually don't achieve an erection. Regardless if I am by myself or with a beautiful girl my penis rarely becomes hard and if it does it's not very firm like it used to be before these problems began. This is very frustrating and embarrassing, I'm too young for this to be happening to me. Any ideas as to why I am experiencing these problems?
