Brief answer....cause for your erectile dysfunction ( ED ) needs to be diagnosed and then treated accordingly
Detailed answer....
Hello,
Thanks or the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
ED problem is either due to physical problems like high blood pressure,diabetes,low testosterone,obesity,abnormal thyroid functions,abnormal prolactin hormones,use of excess of steroids by people going to gym etc
                                            OR
It is due to psychological problems like depression,anxiety,stress ( it could be due to job or money or or some other event),could be relationship problem or even sexual performance anxiety. Alcohol,drugs and smoking can also cause ED.
Since you are a young person,chances of physical problems look less and  it appears to be more of psychological reasons,however it would be better to consult a doctor and get yourself tested so as to rule out any disease process.
Once it is sure that problem is psychological,then you can do following things...
Quit smoking and drugs and moderate your alcohol intake,if any
If obese,then reduce your weight by doing regular aerobic exercises and calorie restriction.
Can try yoga,meditation pranayama and deep breathing exercises.
Can take your partner in confidence who can help you out.
Can take the help of a psychiatrist and use medicines like VIAGRA,CIALIS etc.
I hope this detailed discussion helps you,however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks

Hello, My name is Coltyn and I am a 15 year old FtM (female to male) transgender. I have been taking testosterone enanthate intramuscularly and buserelin acetate nasal spray for 10 months, and have been taking 20 mg/day fluoxetine. I often get horrible stomach aches, had blood in my stool about a month and 1/2 to two months ago. Every day when I have a bowel movement, there is distinguishable food that hasn t been digested properly and is often very loose. I have consulted my paediatrician about the stomach aches and blood in my stool, but not about the undigested food. He says it isn t anything to worry about, but I m not sure if this information changes that. What is wrong with me?
