Hi , thank you for using health care magic.
Did you you have good firm spontaneous erection in early morning hours?
If yes then erectile dysfunction should be because of psychological reason , like low confidence, lack of interest in sexual partner or current sexual practice , worry about performance etc. Best way to overcome this issues is using fair amount of time for foreplay , focus on intimacy rather than performance , making sexual activity more pleasurable by different means.
If you did not have good morning spontaneous erection then there is need for some investigation like serum testosterone level , blood pressure check, sugar check etc. Treating this secondary causes gradually improves erection as primary offending condition gets better.
Hope you find this helpful
