Hi,

I am a 25 year old man who has never experienced a full erection suitable for sexual intercourse.  Over the course of my life, I don't ever remember waking up with an erection either.  I have been to two urologists in my area, and both my blood and testerone tests came back normal. All that the urologist that I'm seeing now says, is that it is psychological problem and hands me pills like Levitra, Viagra, and Cialis..all of which provide minimal results.  My confidence is at an all time low because of this.  I meet a lot of girls, but often shy away from them because of my problem.  I really don't know what else to do at this point, and getting desperate to solve this huge problem.  Any info. you may have would be extremely helpful.

Certainly your problem may be emotional, but you need a specialist in this area of sexual dysfunction. Sex therapists are individuals who have psychological training and an expertise in evaluating and treating patients with psychological causes for their dysfunction.
There are other tests regarding physical causes of impotence than hormonal levels. The blood flow in your penis can be measured with an ultrasound machine and a full physical exam needs to be done for starters. There is a "Sexual Medicine Society" which may maintain a list of members whom you might consult. I would also "Google" “sex therapists” as I am sure that they have an organization that can provide you with local individuals whom you could see.
Good luck.
