Possibly psychologic: Would first reduce frequency of masturbation, if being attempted every day or multiple times per day. Hopefully this would not occur when you are with a partner. Normal for penis to soften immediately after ejaculation. Worrying about ED is inteself one of commonest cause of ED. Suggest consult sex therapist if reducing frequency doesn't help plus you can't stop worrying about it.
