How to Treat a 21 year old With ED?
Hello, my name is Justin I’m reaching out because I really don’t know what the hell has happened to me. I’m a 21 year old male and I haven’t had ED until this month. I’ve always been pretty sexually active and I’ve never really had that much of a problem with porn. I would usually only masturbate like 1-2 times a week and it was never really a problem getting hard. I recently tried nofap for a couple of weeks with success and when I met my goal, I tried and I couldn’t even get hard and virtually no sexual desire. I’ve been googling so many forums and I’m honestly the healthiest I’ve ever been, food and physical fitness. I’m on a vegetarian diet, I don’t consume much sugar, I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, and I don’t have a stressful job. I wouldn’t consider myself depressed or anxious at this point. There are not any signs of low T. I have fatigue some days, but I exercise almost every day and sometimes I am tired. I made an appointment with my doctor, but I really just don’t know what to do/ where to turn to. Any advice?
Erectile dysfunction has many factors and underlying causes, one of the aspects that many people overlook is the physiological aspect.
A physiological aspect can be in form of: anxiety or pressure to perform under heightened anxiety, or acute stress disorder, or Low sex drive due to an underlying cause (e.g. a previous relation).
On the other hand, watching pornography and masturbation frequently can also lead to erectile dysfunction and it’s kind of connected to the first reason.
The key in dealing with this situation is understanding the cause and dealing with it, in your case, I can see you have a healthy and active lifestyle, which would help you overcome this problem quickly actually.
There is a decent chance that this could be a temporary reaction to your NOFAB achievement, and it will resolve on its own during a normal and healthy actual sexual relationship.
But In the meanwhile, I advise you first to visit your doctor and make some test to exclude any medical/physical cause behind this issue, and if all tests come up negative, then it would confirm the above assumption.
I hope this helps.
