do i have erectile dysfunction?
im paranoid i do. i walked and jogged on my treadmill yesterday for 2 hours. i lost alot of weight and belly fat. my pants width was a 38 now its a 34 and i look soo much skinnier. but since i have been working out i have been less horny some days im really horny and i can only get hard at night but even then its not real hard i cant explain becuase its really frustrating. my penis size when hard is usually 6 inches but last night its wasnt hard but it was like 4 inches and when i touched it the skin on my penis was really smooth and sensitive soo is this a sign? im so confused and freaking out!!! oh when soft its 2.5 inches. please tell me what to do? and opinions? im 18y/o
First of all, kudos to you for being able to lose weight.
Vigorous exercise, though, can physiologically decrease libido… and don’t worry, it’s not a permanent thing. Exercise per se can also decrease flaccid penis size as well, usually observed right after exercise, because blood is shunted from your penis to your skeletal muscles as a physiologic response to exercise. Erect penis size should not be affected, though.
You are too young to have erectile dysfunction. Perhaps you are too vigorous with your exercise routine, that’s why you can’t attain full erection. You may also be too tired to feel horny, so maybe backing off on the intensity of your exercise may actually not be a bad idea. Now that you’ve lost weight, you don’t have to keep the same vigor of your exercise routine — just enough to keep the weight off… and eat healthy as well, also to keep the weight off. Also if you have morning erections, it means that your nerves and plumbing are working just fine.
