    Hello guys,

    I don't know how to deal with this situation. I started this challenge by the end of February and after all this time I still have ED and I don't know how to cure this. I go to the gym regularly, I don't smoke or drink and I had moments when I was eating healthy or junk, but in either cases, I had the same result.

    During the morning, I sometimes have a hard penis, but only then. I tried some porn recently in order to test if I get an erection from that, but no result. Do you guys have any idea of a pill or something that might help? Thanks!

    Stay strong bro. I'm 25, married for a year. Been no-fapping for 240 days. Still zero improvement. I get an erection but it goes freaking away in a few seconds, I also have porn induced delayed ejaculation. It's the worst thing ever happened to me. I don't know what to do but going on with NoFap.

    Any lifting of symptoms such as brain fog or depression?

    Yeah definitely have improvements in my general life. For example my biggest problem has been fantasies. I've fantasied about every girl or situtation ever imaginable. Especially for my wife's friends. It was very wrong and disgusting but it was the only way for me to satisfy myself. After 240 days I can say that I fantasize no more.

    Oh nice, congrats! What about the ability to concentrate better and the lifting of brain fog? Has that subsided at all for you? That's more important to me personally because while I'm on 2 days of NoFap, my concentration is in the shitter.

    Before I was flirting with my wife, I was a heavy addict and yes I had brain fog even though I didn't know I had something like this because most of my daily routine was PMOing. When I started to flirt with my wife, I've slowly given up PMOing and brain lifting has gone I can say. I haven't had problems with concentrating by the way or I don't remember it LOL. But yeah, certainly NoFap can help you lifting the fog. Good luck in your journey and read lots of things on the internet to be motivated and understand this condition.

    Hmm... you are in a more delicate situation than I am since you are married... watch out buddy, you need to keep improving yourself in order to maintain this beautiful thing you have in your life.

    May I ask, have you also had cognitive and mental/emotional symptoms such as brain fog and bad concentration? 229 days long of a streak sounds like it'd be gone already (if you had these symptoms)?

    Bad concentration was always part of my life, so it's nothing new for me. But I can say, since I've been doing NoFap, I've seen a lot of progress like on other areas: I socialize more, I'm less awkward, I'm less depressed, I usually see the bright side in every situation and I'm feeling more mature than ever. If I can solve this ED part, I think I will finally find inner peace regarding this sexual part of mine.

    This is pretty discouraging. I have ED too. One of the reasons to begin nofap was to cure this problem. It is not the only reason, of course.
    Are you taking any medicament that can interfere with your erections? I tell you this because I am using a medicament called finasteride -to fight baldness- and it is clearly causing me ED (it is one of its most known side effects). The thing is that before starting the treatment I had already ED problems so the combination of this treatment and PMO was devastating.
    Now that I am on nofap mode I want to see if my ED improves or not and act accordingly.

    I have read quite a few posts where PIED did not improve until kegels were implemented.
    Give it go (consistently).

    I'm taking a similar medication, but minoxidil and I didn't heard anything about ED as a side effect. I will check more sources.

    Hmmm, I heard about this Kegel exercises and there were mixed opinions about this. I can give them a try.

    We may have performance anxiety. Do you think you have the symptoms? I think I do.
