Thanks for writing to us.

Erectile functions are affected by multiple factors - both organic and psychological. Urologist is an ideal person who can investigate for organic causes. You may need battery of test - blood test, ultrasound scans, doppler study, neurological assessment, etc., to identify the cause.

The tablets you are taking for stress might contain anti depressants which do decrease libido as well as cause erectile dysfunction on long term use.
May I know the drugs you are taking right now for your problem?

If no organic causes is found perhaps lifestyle modifications will be necessary. Anxiety is found as the cause most often. De-stressing measures like exercise, particularly aerobic exercise is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction.

Apart from this, good couple intimacy, quitting smoking (if any) is the necessary to reduce the problem.

A few medical drugs such as phosphodiesterase inhibitors/alprostadil have been used for the treatment. You may get them prescribed by a doctor if none of the above measures are successful in treating the problem. Both oral medications as well as injections are available to help in maintaining the erection. Your physician will help you in choosing the best agent for you after examining you to rule out the contraindicating factors.

When pharmacological methods fail, a purpose-designed external vacuum pump can be used to attain erection, with a separate compression ring fitted to the penis to maintain it.

To increase your sex drive you can add celery, raw oysters, banana, avocado, almonds, eggs, figs, garlic,etc., to your food.

With regard to the size of the penis, I would like to let you know that unless you are in possession of a micropenis - a rare condition in which a man’s erect penis is shorter ‎than 2 inches in length - size does not and should not matter. ‎

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.

Thanks for writing again.

The anti psychotics that you are using and the stress seems to be the cause in your case.

You need to practice relaxation techniques, yoga, XXXXXXX breathing exercises, etc.
