Inability to get hard erections during masturbation

I am unable to get a hard enough erection for penetration during masturbation. Same thing happens in sex, but I figured that it was linked to the former problem somewhat as well. Diet isnt bad, in pretty good shape. Was reading that taking zinc might help?

FWIW, I take that multivitamin pack from GNC, which has caffeine, guarana, etc in it.

This sounds circulatory, and not in your head. I would get checked out by a urologist, if it was me. Things as simple as riding a bike, can damage blood vessels, which give these symptoms. It can be fixed.

I dont ride a bike, and haven't had any injuries that could damage blood vessels I wouldn't think. I also can occasionally get it hard enough, just not every time. Still fit what you're saying?

Libido is a bit low, in all honesty. No real spontaneous erections generally, nor morning erections. That is honestly what worries me the most, especially when masturbatory erections are pretty weak as well.

Re: Inability to get hard erections during masturbation

It's either an endocrine problem, like low testosterone, or a circulatory problem, like an injury to the perineum slowing the blood supply. There are lots of discussions on endocrine problems in the Men's Health forum. They would be well worth reading, to understand what to have the doctor look for. Sometimes, these can be subtle, a doctor can think they are looking at the right balance of hormones, and one may miss something that another will catch. It's best to see it through the eyes of men who have been there, to understand, before you talk with your doctor.
I'd set up an appointment with both an endocrinologist, and a urologist.
Not having morning wood is a good sign that this is physical, and not psychological.
Good luck with this.

Good news. I have been taking zinc 50 mg tablets, and they seem to be helping the issue.
