Hey, i'm only 20 years old and i'm already having erection problems. I have an overactive sex drive and have been having sex since I was 15, constantly with many girlfriends over the years. And if sex isn't available I masterbate. I've been having problems getting an erection lately. It's never rock hard anymore, always sort of limp/hard. I can't drink and get an erection anymore either. I've been trying to go for periods at a time without any sexual activity in hopes it might help (which is difficult for me ), but it doesn't seem to be working...Unless I should go for a loooong period of time like months maybe? Is this normal for someone of my age, should I be looking into taking medicine like provigro or something? It could even be a mental aspect, the past couple times i did have sex i completely overanalyzed the situation, couldnt stop thinking about my situation, was nervous to even get in bed, could that maybe be an aspect? I drink alot of diet drinks, and diet, recently lost 70 pounds four or five months ago...could that be a factor?

Well there are a couple of things that could be at play here.

First, you are getting older. It's really easy for a teenager to get turned on by everything and want sex all the time. As you get older and more mature, that mellows out. This is perfectly normal and healthy.

Also, drinking (for many people) causes sensation to decrease and pleasure to decrease, and for males makes it hard to get an erection or ejaculate.

Unless your erection problems are getting in the way of actual sex (like you can't maintain an erection long enough to penetrate your partner) then it's not really a problem. I wouldn't worry unless it actually starts interfering with your sex life.

And it could be mental- try to relax!!

TheLway- that's normal for your age. I promise all your friends are going through it too! All I can suggest is to wear long shirts or something!
