Hi,

Yes, slight problem in getting erection, few days ago it seemed fine. My age is 23.

Not suffering from medical condition or medication and I have some stress but nothing major.

Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
Well, there may be few causative together, which may need investigations. Following are the possibilities which may occur with such symptoms-
1. Low testosterone.
2. Anxiety and depression.
3. Neuropathy, It can occur due to vitamin deficiency or lower spinal cord (lower back) issues.
4. Prostate infection( at your age this possibility is least).
As such, you may need psycho sexual therapy which helps to reduce performance anxiety, develop the new sexual skills and knowledge, modify negative sexual attitude.
Certain feelings can interfere with normal sexual function, including feeling nervous about or self-conscious about sex, feeling stressed either at home or at work.
Stress and anxiety is the most common cause. You may need counselling sessions by a Psychologist accordingly.
If required, your doctor may advise Testosterone levels checkup and Penile nerve test.
Most likely it is psychological, and you should discuss this issue with Psychologist.
You should have regular exercise, Deep breathing exercises would be helpful, Keep yourself busy in hobbies.
One should avoid caffeine, alcohol. Take healthy and well balanced diet. You should avoid smoking, and if you are overweight, then try to loose your weight.

You should maintain a good friend circle, and have a social healthy chat with them. Practice yoga and meditation for relaxation.

Good luck and take care.

Lastly, does it not seem wierd for reduction of sensation and penis size so suddenly in the last 2 days? I mean, the size is now almost half than what it used to be.... Or this could happen.

Thanks
