Lack of Sex Drive in young male. Help!

I am a 24 year old male who feels almost no sex drive anymore. Its rare if I wake up with an erection in the morning and I almost never get them randomly during the day. I still find myself mentally attracted to women, but physically seems to be another story.

I always had a problem getting an erection when trying to be intimate with women in the past. It wasn't until 2009 that I saw my physician about the problem and he said it was likely a mental issue and that I need to feel more comfortable first. Shortly after that I was finally able get an erection with my girlfriend at the time (after a few weeks of trying but failing).

For the most part, I had no issue with sexual performance during that relationship, but it ended just over a year ago and since then I have not had any sexual interaction with women and I feel like my libido has gone away. I'm still able to become aroused and masturbate to pornography, but it feels like a mental urge to do it and not a physical one. I've been going out with this girl lately who I really admire and feel like I should be more physically attracted to, but I don't feel any sexual urges towards her.

My mental state of mind has been relatively unchanged these past few years so I'm not sure what exactly could be causing the problem. Should I go in to have blood work done, should I see a psychiatrist about this, what? Any help that can be given on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Hey someguy. I have one word for you: relax.

You have had a successful relationship with a previous partner. You can masturbate successfully (and it doesn't matter if it's a mental urge or a physical one -- you are successful).

When you allow yourself to develop the relationship with "this girl lately who I really admire", you will probably find that sex follows in a perfectly natural way.

No need for blood tests at the moment; no need for a psychiatrist. You are ok. The girl you mention is probably waiting for you to take the next step.

A young man should never have a problem getting an erection. They should come like clock work. When you are young, you have them constantly it seem. You would suggest, seeing another doctor. Have your testosterone checked. If you are healthy and active, erections should not be a problem.
