How long has this been going on, and can you masturbate normally with a full erection and get to climax that way?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
for about 3 months. sometimes i can masturbate will a full erection but most time it is only half masted and yew
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 6 years ago.
Well, at your age, this may only be from anxiety over what's going on and not a physical condition, but I would suggest you have your testosterone level checked because that's about the only thing that could cause this short of an anxiety problem. Diabetes, back injuries, thyroid problems could also be considered as causes, but if you can achieve a full erection, the machinery is intact and this is not the erectile dysfunction seen in much older men. If it's determined to be emotional, counseling with a sex counselor may help.
