Hey. Welcome to Icliniq.
I read your query and having erection trouble from time to time isn't necessarily a cause for concern. If erectile dysfunction is an ongoing issue, however, it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems. Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment and a risk factor for heart disease( but you are just 17 so this risk is negligible).
Male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Erectile dysfunction can result from a problem with any of these. Depending on the cause and severity of your erectile dysfunction and any underlying health conditions, you might have various treatment options.
Mainly behaviour modification and pharmacological treatment are given and both are really effective. Do let me know if you want to proceed with the treatment.
Also provide your valuable feedback. Regards!
