No health conditions, on no medications I can get one through masturbation, and also one maybe during sex but not a strong one and my length has definitely decreased in size. Not under any stress and no relationship problems

Anthony,

Thank you for the reply.

Difficulty in maintaining an erection or getting one is mainly due to two causes - one is stress and the second one is a problem with the blood flow to the penis. A problem with the blood flow can also cause an apparent decrease in the size of the penis.

Decreased blood flow can occur due to a plaque in the blood vessels which affect the blood flow - this is usually due to a high cholesterol or lipid level.

A problem with the nerves to the blood vessels of or the tissues can also cause erectile dysfunction (ED). Diabetes is a common condition which can cause neuropathy and ED.

Please consult a urologist for a complete checkup.
