Brief Answer:
Could be erection problem

Detailed Answer:

I have gone through your query in detail and understand your concern towards your sexual problem.

It was informed that your harmone levels are within normal limits

So it could be even anxiety problem, which can be treated by antianxiety drugs.

You can test it by observing your nocturnal penile tumescence known as NPT, that is normal erection occurs in the early hours.

If you are very sure that it is not normal, then you can start on SILDENAFIL tablets to improve your erection by sustaining it , through the production of nitric oxide.

Discuss with your doctor regarding these details and follow accordingly.

Hope this information would help you.

Take care,
Dr. Soujanya
