For your information, some major causes of Erectile dysfunction, include conditions causing damage to nerves, arteries, smooth muscles, and fibrous tissues ; Lifestyle diseases like hypertension, diabetes, Smoking, being overweight and avoiding exercise are possible causes of ED.
In case, your partner, is able to have early morning erections, then it would be a indicator that he is completely normal and his erection issues could be psychological.
In case, there is lack of early morning erections, it would probably be due to low testosterone levels, or due to some form of penile injury.
A prescription of medications like Viagra or Cialis, can be given by his doctor, to see for better response. In case there is confirmed ED, which is not treatable with medications , then surgical options including penile implants may be helpful.
Hence your partner might need to consult with his doctor or a urologist for a proper examination and treatment.
My boyfriend doesn't wake up with hard on's. We use to have sex and it would go limb. Then he went to the doctors and found that he has a cyst in his testicles. The doctor told him that it was nothing and to stop stressing and maybe do exercise for the sex and gave him a sample of Viagra, and he hasn't taken them yet and he doesn't get no erections nor does he touch me sexually.
We still have the same issue, I'm not sure if this Doctor gave him the proper information.
