How do I convince my boyfriend to get help for ED?

My boyfriend is 26; I am a 21yo girl. We have been dating for about a year and a half. Over the past two months, we have had sex maybe four times. He is depressed, and also has some old medical issues that cause him some pain during sex (no, he won't see a dr about that either). He has bad insurance (but he has insurance) and hasn't gone to see a doctor. This situation has happened before but eventually he got back to normal. It wasn't this long though. I am frustrated and sad and also my sex drive is really suffering. I know there are other things to do but I really want to have sex, and it is making me really unhappy not to have sex. I can't tell him that without making him feel bad, though, and that makes it harder to have sex...and basically I am miserable but not saying anything about it and he is miserable (I assume??) and hoping I don't say anything about it. I really just want to have normal sex with my boyfriend and not have it be this big deal. I worry that this issue is starting to become loaded in my mind, because it is also very frustrating for me that he won't take action in other areas in his life (he is jobless but won't apply for retail jobs for example even though there are plenty in our area, or even temp jobs) (and he won't see a doctor for his depression). And I don't want that to happen. We are both happier when our sex life is regular. (Also I am getting resentful - because I feel like he is doing this while knowing I am unhappy - and feeling unattractive, because he says this didn't happen with his other girlfriends.) Help?
