Thank you for posting your query.

It is very difficult to lose penile length after one has reached puberty. At your age of 23, I do not see any reasons as such.

Be reassured that you are fine.

Could you tell me whether you have a decrease in libido? If yes, you need to be investigated further for the causes.

I will be available for your follow up queries if any.

Thanks for the follow up.

You are probably just experiencing erectile dysfunction rather than any decrease in size of penis.

Erection requires a sequence of events. Erectile dysfunction can occur when any of the events is disturbed. Nerve impulses in the brain, spinal column, around the penis and response in muscles, fibrous tissues, veins, and arteries in and around the corpora cavernosa constitute this sequence of events. Injury to any of these parts which are part of this sequence (nerves, arteries, smooth muscles, fibrous tissue) can cause ED.

About 5% of men that doctors see for erectile dysfunction have low testosterone levels. In many of these cases, low testosterone causes lower sexual interest, not erectile dysfunction.

You should see urologist and seek further treatment under his care.

Wishing you good health.
