What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Sexual arousal actually involves several processes and is quite complicated – it requires input from the brain, blood vessels, nerves, muscles, and hormones. Because it is such a complicated process, there are a lot of places that something could go wrong.
Unfortunately, this means that there is no one cause for erectile dysfunction. Every case of erectile dysfunction may be caused by a wide variety of differing factors, ranging from the far more common physical issues to the less likely psychological ones. This can make treatment difficult, as different causes may warrant different solutions.
The potential psychological causes of erectile dysfunction include:
- Anxiety, especially related to a relationship
- Stress, especially related to a relationship
The potential physical causes of erectile dysfunction include:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure or cholesterol
- Being overweight or obese
- Multiple sclerosis
- Low testosterone
- Frequent use of alcohol or tobacco
- Prescription medications
- An enlarged prostate
- Parkinson’s disease
This list is not comprehensive, and other conditions may also result in erectile dysfunction. Such a wide range of potential causes may make determining the exact cause difficult to do without professional help – fortunately, we have years of experience in helping men overcome erectile dysfunction, and should be able to assist by finding the cause and creating a treatment plan to address the issue.
