I am a teen and have started having poor erections as of 2 to 3 months ago. I noticed back In October that my erections were not strong during masturbation, in fact it was difficult to even get It up. I started watching and masterbating to pornography back in late 6th grade at a frequency of masturbating once per day, but as of June I have decreased masturbation and watching porn to zero. ItĀ seems that now I do not have the sex drive I used to have, and I never have the urge to masterbate. I have been dating a girl for 7 months and when ever we make out I am able to get a little bit aroused and get a strong erection, but it easily goes away. I sometimes get morning wood, and am able to get an erection by thought sometimes, but rarely from my own touch. My erections vary, but they ususually are not as hard as something like a year ago. I have noticed that my ED is improving since stopping pornography and masturbation, but I'm concerned it could be a physical problem. Ideas?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. masturbation is not the tool to assess the performance issue. So ignore the feeling. Avoid masturbation and dont worry about any thing. When you will get a partner you will get the performance back.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
