I am a 24 year old male. Over the past few years I've realised my penis has become less sensitive. Now I can't get stimulated by for example oral sex because I feel nothing.

In addition, my erections aren't as hard as they used to be. In particular the head of the penis remains relatively soft when my penis is erect erect.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
None.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

could it be psychological?

is masturbation normal?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Masturbation is normal but the head of my penis especially does not get hard. And I have lost a lot of sensitivity on my penis as a whole.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Medicines I used to use for acne: doxycycline, tetracycline.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

Ok thank you.

This is likely a nerve problem or testosterone then

you need to see a urologist and have nerve and blood flow tests on the penis.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Final question: if it is some sort of nerve problem, is this likely to be permanent or repairable?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

unfortunately a lot of these are permanent
