Sudden erection problem: What can be the causes?

Resolved Question:

Hello Doctor,

I am 23 years old and I used to have healthy erection with my partner over a month back. For a month now I have not been able to get erection. I have tried masturbating for over a while and had got some erection. When I tried after 3 or 4 days, but I was not able to get the erection. Since then I have tried both porn and manual stimulation, but still no erection. I have no problem with ejaculation even with my limp penis. I have had nocturnal emission for few times during this period and woken up with hard penis quite few time and I am still virgin. Can you tell me what is wrong with me and how can this happen in few days time?

Thanks for the question. The major cause of erection problems are due to psychological and stress related issues, as you have had night erection as well as normal erection in the past. It is better to keep a continues check on the symptoms and consult a doctor to rule out the possibility of any organic causes like black issues or diabetes etc which may lead to this problem.
