Angry Help!!! 21 and can't keep an erection for more than a few minutes

Ok so here's my problem. Nearly all of the time I can get an erection but its not as hard as it used to be at all and it only lasts for a few minutes. Normally not long enough to put on a condom. I have had these problems for the past 6 months and am going nuts. I have went to see both my family doctor and then upon his referral to see a uroligist. The uroligist I went to was a noted uroligist in my area and is on the board at Case Western University in Cleveland. He took a look at my testosterone test that my local doctor had done and didn't have much else to say except take this sample of viagra and get over your anxiety. I also had him refer me to a good psychologist in the area to help me deal with this. I took his advice and took the pills a few times. 3 to be exact and 12.5 mg of viagra did the trick for me. I then attempted to not take it and my erections were back to being less than satisfying. What do you people suggest I do. I"ve been contimplating going back to my general doctor to have him do whatever tests he has to so that he can rule out anything phsical but I just don't understand how with me being so young I can have such a problem with this. I very rarely wake up with an erection in the morning anymore. I don't know if thats just because I wake up looking for it or what but I cant take this any longer. I'm 21 and supposed to be at my sexual peak not stuck worring about whether its gonna work or not. Is there a factor that could cause it to be hard in one occasion and not in the other like testosterone levels fluctuating rapidly or something like that. Once I'm inside I've never went soft but its just getting hard and keeping it hard enough for penetration thats getting me. Someone please help me. Any advice would be great. I've been with my girlfriend for 3 and a half years now and I used to be the one with the control in sex and now its not like that at all. What should I do? whats wrong? please help.

Hi Panther

Unfortuantely I can't offer you any advice. I can only say that you describe the EXACT same thing I have been going through, even for the exact same time period. 6 months. I'm 21, and I no longer get erections in the morning, and if I do, they're weak. It's driving me insane. Like you said, we're in our sexual peak and it's crazy to be dealing with this now.

I have a question though. Is your sex drive gone too, or is it normal? When my erection troubles started 6 months ago, my sex drive also completely disappeared. It's all really unnerving. I went to a doctor recently, and he tested my testosterone and said it was fine. However I have not pursued it past this point. I'm going to go as far as it takes to get this solved. Sexuality is a huge part of being human, and I feel like a part of me is missing.

What about psychological issues? Has that been ruled out? I plan on seeing some kind of specialist for this. I just hope we both return to normal.
