Exclamation Problems with erections

I have been reading this forum, because I also have a problem with getting erect... I have noticed that people keep asking if you wake up in the morning/night with an erection... and i don't recall ever doing that... I've been masturbating since i was 12 years old... I never thought i really had a problem until I tried having sex with my girlfriend... I couldnt even fit my penis in... and i knew i felt kind of limp... of course ive watched porn and when i see guys on there i have started noticing that i get no where NEAR as hard as they do... So eventually, after being broken up with my girlfriend, I told one of my friends that i knew that was bi that i might think im gay or something... so we tried doing stuff and still my erection was barely even hard/could keep it for a matter of seconds... This is a friend i have had my whole life and whom i was not nervous AT ALL to be with... I then realized i was not gay and came back to girls (thank god)... But ever since then i still cant get a full erection and its starting to effect my life... My penis size is approximately 6 1/2 inches erect... and normally 4 inches flaccid... both depending on the situation... And now ive even noticed it when i masturbate i dont get nearly as hard as i think i should... im about to resort to a sexual enhancement pill such as Libido-max, considering I don't really have the money as of being an early adult of 18 years old to have an appt with me doctor even... I was just wondering if there was any way i could help this other than going out and spending money on pills that i dont know what effect will have on me... Thanks for any help in advance

Re: Problems with erections

if you dont get erections that are pretty good at night then it could be hormonal or a blood flow issue. Not getting them at night is a very good indicator the problem is physical and not mental. I would suggest seeing a doctor and start out having your hormones checked. IF they are ok then a urologist might want to check for blood flow to the penis. If you are young the blood flow problem is not likely but anything is possible. Its not likely any pills you find are going to do much for you.

Do you have good libido? How about good sensations in the penis when you masturbate? If those are normal but you just cant get hard then it may be blood flow. Otherwise most likely hormonal. Have you tried viagra or the like? Do they have any positive effect?

Re: Problems with erections

I've been looking at viagra but since it takes a prescription and i really dont have the resources to see a doctor that is out of the question at the moment.

Re: Problems with erections

I agree, it sounds like a blood flow problem. Viagra isn't the way to go, taking care of the problem is. When you get the resources, see a good urologist. Until then, there is not a lot you can do.

Re: Problems with erections

As of me being only 18 and still at home, does anyone with personal experience maybe know a way i can approach my parents about this? Me and my parents are really close and i kno that it wont be a huge problem, but still its kind of an embarrasing subject to bring up and when etc... and help would be great thanks.

Edit - and to you who asked if my libido is good... if libido is meaning sexual desire then my sexual desire is going strong... i get sexual aroused just as easy as any other man.

Re: Problems with erections

This points even more to a circulatory problem.

I kinda agree, it's probable. But not all guys get morning/nighttime erections. My point is that if you used to get them but don't any more (like me) then it's almost certain there's a physical problem. Since you said you don't get as hard masturbating as before, I think it's unlikely to be psychological.

Circulatory problems are rare for young guys. It may well be hormonal like low testosterone levels. Do you recall a drop, maybe a slight drop, in your libido? Come to think of it, my libido has been slowly dropping the past 3 years (I'm 20), which I attributed to being "sexually more mature and possibly so used to porn." I wish I would have noticed my hormones were off earlier.

I see what your saying but if you notice I haven't ever gotten as hard as I think i should be getting. I have never had a completely full erection from what I think a completely full erection is.

Re: Problems with erections

Oh and I dont know if this will have a difference... but there is a good chance it may... I have EXTREMELY horrible blood flow through the veins in my legs... Within the next 3 years I'm going to have to get the veins removed... Which is called vericose veins... I'm thinking this may have a huge deal to do with it... Sorry I didn't mention it before.

Yes, this must be it. It explains why you never get morning erections or a full-on erection masturbating, but have a normal libido.

I'm really sorry about your problems. Good luck. If you have further questions just ask.
