A drop in sexual function rarely has a single cause. Psychological and physical issues often combine to create the problem.
In this video, you’ll learn:
Some of the psychological or mental contributors to erectile dysfunction include:
A strange relationship
Lack of sexual arousal
Physical or organic contributors to erectile dysfunction include:
Spinal cord injury
Low testosterone level
Blood flow issues
High blood pressure
Radiation to the pelvis
Veno-occlusive dysfunction, which allows blood to flow out of the erectile tissue during an erection
The psychological and physical causes of decreased sexual function are difficult to separate. If you feel anxious or depressed, those feelings are actually chemical reactions. So those are also a type of physical issue.
