What causes secondary erectile dysfunction?

default
Posted on Tue, 22 Jul 2014
Question: I am a health 25 year old who till nov 2013 had no problem in getting an erection. I used to have my morning erections and during other times of the day depending on my mood . But from then onwards progressively I have witnessed that the morning erections have stopped . Also even if I try to excite myself I just get loose(soft) erection and which hardly last 30 secs.
I wonder that at my age and within such a short span of 9 months what might have changed that is causing this issue. This thing has lately started to bother me mentally as I don't feel confident of entering a new relation.
