Question regarding hypertension and its damage to erectile vasculature


So here's the deal, I started having high blood pressure at 20 and now im 23 with ED. I asked my doctor and he said it was too early for the HBP to be responsible for any sort of vascular damage. Do you think this is true? He thinks the ED is psychological but I simply can't accept this. I don't even get morning erections, AT ALL.

I got an echo stress test because I read about how ED can signal a coming heart attack or coronary artery disease, I passed so hoping that isn't an issue. It just seems like my erections are really weak and floppy, sometimes if I masturbate in the shower watching porn I can manage a strong erection but only if I am laying on my back, and if I stop either watching the P or M then it immediately becomes flaccid again.

Just want some opinions, only other thing was ive had blood and urine tests that showed high cortisol, now it seems to be normal so not sure I can even consider it as being a cause+effect.

I agree with your doctor that it is very unlikely that HTN or vascular disease is causing your ED at such a young age.  Sometimes medications such as propecia can have side effects such as erectile dysfunction, so if you are taking any medications you should look at the potential side effects.  Otherwise a non-organic or psychological cause is certainly possible.  I would find a urologist you trust and discuss this with him/her.  Best of luck to you.
