I cannot maintain my erection after sexual stimulation stops.

I can get an erection but it collapses/goes soft as soon sexual stimulation stops. This has been going on since august of 2018. I'm not sure if it was due to me using a penis pump and or excessive porn and masturbation habits in the past. I've been a month clean of porn and masturbation but I still cannot hold an erection. I have used two supplemental products that promotes both a responsive libido and blood flow. During the time I took those my erections lasted quite a while without stimulation. It took about 20+ seconds before it started to begin to drain of blood but it was satisfactory enough for me to change sexual positions. I'm not sure what that means but I'm wondering if it's a physical issue. I don't think it's psychological because Ive been with the same partner for 2 years. I went to my primary care doctor but all he suggested was I use a penis ring. Any idea of what could be causing this based on the information I listed here?

It's possible that their may be a physical component to this due to supplement usage. Those supplements tend do a couple of the following: raise blood pressure.
elevate hormone levels responsible for libido. Some will even have a vasodialator in them to not only increase blood supply, but also increase blood volume (how fast can it get there versus how much can it hold).

All that said, How long were you taking those supplements? What was your frequency of use? How long have you been off of the supplements, if you have gone off them?
