User avatar Many factors can contribute to your symptoms. Psychological/stress factors can be of huge significance but there may also be some hormonal issues. The hormonal issues are less likely since you are able to develop an erection normally.

I would recommend that you see a urologist for an evaluation. If your physical condition is found to be OK I would recommend you look into the psychological aspect of things. Try lowering your stress as much as you can. Seeing a counselor may also be of help if you desire.

Best wishes.
