I'm dissapointed. 7 months and PIED not cured
« on: January 13, 2021, 02:18:58 PM »
I'm 28. I started watching porn at the age of 12. I watched really hardcore stuff, almost everyday with long sessions and lots of edging. I started NoFap at the beginning of 2018 with average streaks about 15-20 days, sometimes longer, but not more than a month. I just reached 7 months porn and masturbation free. During this time I only let my girlfriend give me a handjob, but I was completely porn and masturbation free. During handjobs I'm generally hard, but when I attempt to penetrate or put a condom on my dick goes down so fast.

Today I did a test and masturbated for the first time in 7 months. I made myself hard, but when I stopped stroking my dick started to go down really fast. In just a few seconds I lost 50% of erection. I also noticed that I'm really hard only when close to climax.

I noticed a lot of improvements in those 7 months:

- rock hard morning woods,

- starting getting erection just by kissing or making out (not strong just about 50%, but before NoFap my dick was completely flat while kissing or making out...)

- more energy and motivation- enjoying life

But after doing today's test I'm starting to wonder if it's really PIED? Or maybe sth else? I did a blood test a few months ago and everything was ok, testosterone was really high, prolactin was low. It shouldn't be an organic problem as I have morning woods and they are strong.

Performance anxiety? Not with my hand, so why does my erection go down so fast when I stop stroking? Why am I not able to put a condom on without losing erection?

After this I got really disappointed and I'm not really sure if PIED is my problem... I thought that after 7 months of NoFap I should be cured and have normal erections.

Could you please help me? I'm so disappointed.

Do you have performance fear ? Are you thinking too much in this case ? The fears and the worries block your brain from producing dopamine which responsible from the erection . generally you are developing well

I think that yes it cound be performance fear. Even with this masturbation test I was thinking if I get hard? But maybe it's not about PIED....

It can longer than 7 months without a doubt. There are a lot of guys who need 1 + year.
Dont doubt yourself and the process. You have already seen a lot of improvements.
As far as i know performance anxiety while masturbating is no thing.
Did you have a check up by a urologist? You have a lot of worries, that can help to handle your doubts. Also its a good idea, just to make sure.
Bit your improvements definitely indicate, that the rebooting is working for you.

I would like to update my story. Like I posted before, I reached 7 months porn and masturbation free and my PIED is still not cured. So I decided to try Viagra. I have tried Viagra only once before. It was 1,5 year ago when I was still watching porn, I took 25 mg of Sildenafil and it didn't work, absolutely zero results...

Last night I took 50 mg of Sildenafil and here's what happend. I was taking a bath with my gf, she touched my dick, just a three strokes and I was rock hard! It never happend to me before. The difference in erection was enormous. Even she was supprised how hard my dick was. She was giving me blowjob/handjob and even if she stopped for a while my dick was still hard, not getting soft rapidly like always. So I think it's a great success!

I think my issue is mental, like some of you have said in my original post. I was stressing too much and putting to much pressure on myself to get hard and eventually I couldn't get hard... I think that Viagra helped me with that as I was more confident about getting hard. Now I know that the problem is not my dick but brain and stress.

I know that my brain is still not fully healed, so I will continue my no porn and no masturbation journey and never go back to this shit again. Next time I will test the effect of just 25 mg of Sildenafil. To be clear I'm against taking pills and I don't want to be dependent on them. But I think I just need a little support of Viagra to gain more conifidence. I read many stories like this from guys here that after reboot they needed a little support of Viagra and then eventually they were able to have sex without it.

Especially for people who started young (before or during puberty), the effect of porn on the brain can be very significant, especially for younger people who started out on high speed internet. It can take months or even years to fully heal. If I remember correctly Gabe Deem said he was basically sexless for 9 months due to PIED before his erections started coming back, and about 2 years til he fully healed. So, 7 months without complete healing sounds sounds like no fun at all to go through, but I wouldn't be too worried about it.
