Thanks for query.

Based on the facts that you have posted the problem of ED that you are suffering from is mostly due to what is called Performance anxiety.

The following measure will help you to boost up your confidence and getting a good erection and delay ejaculation.

1) Practice regular exercise for 45 minutes followed by meditation for 1/2 an hour in the morning.

2) Take high protein diet rich in vegetables and fruits and Vitamin A, C, D, E and Zinc.

3)Take antioxidants like almonds 5-6 every day.
