Impotency at 18??

I believe I have an inability to maintain/get an erection. I am 18 and I don't recall recent "morning woods" or "random" erections. When I try to conceive of sexual thoughts, I struggle trying to get erect. To test out my capabilities, I've looked at pornography and sure enough, I was able to get erect, but only after direct stimulation.

The last time I was with a girl, I was able to get erect but it would go limp after a while (although I am attributing that to the fact that we both knew we wouldn't be having any sexual intercourse whatsoever). This was approximately 3 weeks ago.

I don't know if this is psychological or perhaps physical; I used to "jelq" when I was 16 (stupid, I know) for a short period of time - I believe 2 or 3 weeks. In any case, are there any steps I should take before consulting a doctor? I am hoping it is psychological.

Re: Impotency at 18??

I believe the reason for this may be A) you have a large penis, some guys with a large penis have a hard time becoming fully erect without help of stimulant. B) You are on Anti-depressants or some other kind of medication, this is common for 18 year olds.
