Thanks for using healthcaremagic.

You have no habit of smoking,drinking or other habits that is very good.

Treatment for erectile dysfunction is there.
Best doctor is sexologist/psychiatrist to be consulted. Generally part of sexology comes under psychiatry curriculum in allopathy medicines.And sometime MBBS doctor does the practice of sexology after PhD or fellowship.

Two types of treatment:
One is medicines: Sildenafil or tadalfil (PDE-5 inhibitor) can be used on required basis before 1-2 hours of sex. These are the good medicines without significant side effects except headache.
Another medicine containg methylfolate+pyridoxine (Tetrafol Plus) is also useful in some patients having homocystiene deficiency.

Another option is sex counseling and master and johnson technique which can be taught by qualified sexologist/psychiatrist.
Hope I have answered your query,
Dr.Chintan Solanki.
