Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.
Treatment and cure for erectile dysfunction(ED) is there.

First of all please make note that too much masturbation or wathcing porn is not causing ED. Yes these both habit can reduce sensitivity of your glans from very high(in adolscent) to lower level,which is normal.

Treatment options are medicines and sex counselling.
Medicines called PDE-5 inhibitor like sildenafil, tadalafil, udenafil are quite helpful. They can be taken before sex on required bases.They cause headache as side effect otherwise well tolerated.
Before starting these medicines evaluation for blood pressure , diabetes and physical check up needed.If anything is there, treatment for the same should be done.
Other medicines are trazodone, yohimbine which have more side effects and used when above are not useful.
A vitamin supplement with methylfolate and pyridoxine may help in ED if individual have homocystiene deficiency.Discuss all about this your treating doctor or a sexologist

Sex counselling include your detail history regarding masturbation, watching porn, sexual activities. After that sexologist can reach to conclusion of your problem and suggest modification in your behaviour and techniques of sex. Master & XXXXXXX Therapy is also good for ED which involves couple to be part of therapy.As sex is not single handed procedure.

If you have habit of smoking , alcohol or any drug ,please leave it as they affect your performance.

Hope I have answered your query,I will be happy to help further.

Brief Answer:
You can try but counselling is must

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Medicines like shilajit or mast mood are for erectile dysfunction(ED). They can help for sure considering you do not have any physical cause behind it.I would like to know"Have your doctor examined you completely? Do you have any physical problem ? Do you have any substance use?

Go for testosterone level. If low, treatment is injectable or oral testosterone.

And I can confidently say that it is not due to porn. Just narrate your whole problem in detail with each minute thing, so doctor can help you the best. You need session for sex counselling with your wife for medicines to be effective.

Sex is not only in genitalia , it is an action of brain and orgasm felt in brain, so proper counselling with your wife is must.

All the best & regards,
Dr. Chintan Solanki.

I haven't had a full exam I guess. Just the low testosterone treatment in which I was prescribed a cream that I rub into my skin. I read so many things on the internet about my situation. About nerve damage in the penis and something about dopamine in the brain. Saying also the best cure is to just stop watching the porn and I have. Also read if I stop doing that it will naturally get better. The brain will also be able to function better if I continue not do this. Is this true or should I still try those medications like shilajit, mast mood or pde 5 inhibitors?

Brief Answer:
No it is not true

Detailed Answer:
Hi thanks for question.
If not examined fully,please consult another doctor.
The important thing is to find out the cause.
After your cause is established, treatment can be done.
You can try by stop watching porn, but I guess it would not help.
You need detail counselling with medicines.
All the best.
