Weak erections, brown pigmentation in top of shaft below head. Reason?

Hi doc,
. i am 18 years old and i have recently noticed that my erections have been very weak. I was about to have sex with this girl, but I couldn't seem to get an erection no matter what i tried. I tried watching porn to see if it would work, but nothing. Not even my favorite video. Some people are telling me its my diet (because I eat a lot of fast food) and that makes sense but also there are some,i guess you could call, brownish colored pigmentation toward the top of my shaft right below the head. i swear it show up overnight. Could my diet cause these spots and erectile dysfunction? Could it also cause me to lose my sex drive? Or what do you think It could be?

Hello dear,

Connections between erectile dysfunction & excess use of porn has been reported in many studies.
For those affected, recovery takes place by 6-12 weeks & mainly involves avoiding the causative factor, that is watching porn.

Other than that, you need to make certain modifications in your diet & lifestyle:
1. Have a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts & honey.
2. Avoid fast foods & lipid containing diet.
3. Avoid smoking & alcohol
4. Keep away stress, think positive.
5. Exercise regularly & practice meditation

Despite these measures, if you experience difficulty, it will be better to rule out other causes like high blood pressure, blood sugar and other local causes that impair blood flow to the genital organ.

Take care.
