Thanks for the query.

You have provided me with good information.

You are trying for a baby and are unable to maintain erection. It is not a serious problem since there is cure for this.

Erectile Dysfunction is an inability to achieve erection. It can be due to various causes like Low self esteem, Performance anxiety, Depressed moods, Stress, Relationship conflicts.

In your case Performance anxiety and stress could be the cause.

Other systemic causes will be :
1. Diabetes mellitus
2. Hypertension (high blood pressure)
3. Atherosclerosis
4. Renal (kidney) failure
5. Neurological disorders - multiple sclerosis, stroke, paraplegia, spinal cord lesions.

When there is no organic factor and the problem lies purely in the mind, it is labeled a case of psychogenic impotence. But before such hasty labeling, it is necessary to prove by andrological investigation that no organic or bodily cause exists.You will need to get examined by a Physician first.

Counseling and sex therapy by a Psychiatrist are sometimes effective in helping patients with minor sexual problems, especially when these are caused by sexual ignorance and psychological factors.This might be effective for you.

Other forms of treatment are Medications, Hormone replacement therapy, External vacuum devices.

I hope, this answers your query. Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up queries.
