I have two daughters who are 10 and 14. I don't check the function of their erectile tissues. I'm not even sure how I would.
10yo, never has erections... ? - Page 2
It's a lot less invasive with boys. Erections are pretty obvious. I'm not sure one could check a girl for this without really invading her privacy and personal space. With boys, their clothing "tents" so it's easy to see if it is or isn't happening, and as not having erections can cause problems later in life, I think a boy who is not having erections should at least be taken to a doctor for a baseline check up. If the Ped doesn't give a satisfactory answer then a urologist (preferably a Ped Urologist) and a endocrinologist should probably be consulted.

This is just...I'm baffled...why would...? I'm shaking my head.
What if the son hadn't mentioned that he's never had an erection?
No, I haven't seen my son undressed since he was 6, maybe 7 y.o.
I'd be curious to know if the OP ever found something wrong with her son, related to his 10 y.o. ED.
