Brief Answer:
Exclude zinc and potassuim difficiency first

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns .. I would recommend that you first get a blood test to measure the levels of your potassuim and zinc as potassuim and zinc difficiencies can lead to erectile dysfunction..
Also increasing the dietary content of green leafy vegetables , nuts and beets because they act as vasodilator which might help improve the condition .. Herbal medications such as Yohimbe extract which is available in various strengths and forms in numerous over-the-counter supplements may also improve the condition..i hope you find this helpful
