Yes but see your MD: Erectile problems should motivate you to see your md. He can rule out an illness , a medication or alcohol/drug abuse that may be causing the problem. Be sure to be open with the md. If your problem is only due to poorly coping with your stress, a referral to a professional can help you develop healthier ways to cope with your issues and avoid the distress of erectile dysfunction.
