Erection Issues

I'm 28 years old and obese. I've had erection issues for many years now. It's been a long time since I had morning erection. However I've faced no issues while masturbation. During masturbation and while thinking something , erections are normal. I've had normal nocturnal emissions also. Only the morning and frequency of erections are less. Is this something serious?

Hi there...erectile dysfunction could be due to many reasons. Anxiety being the most. So first try relaxation techniques and distraction method. Then try to cut down on any habits like alcohol, smoking or drugs. This will help. If there's no improvement then you must be investigated for any comorbidities like diabetes hypertension hypercholestrolemia. Treating these comorbidities also help. Medically there are many options like oral medications and topical creams. If the above conservative measure do not help kindly consult a psychiatrist for medical therapy.
