Nonphysical causes may account for impotence. The most common nonphysical male impotence causes are stress, anxiety and fatigue. Impotence is also an occasional side effect of psychological problems such as depression. Negative feelings toward your sexual partner — or expressed by your sexual partner — such as resentment, hostility or lack of interest also can be a factor in erectile dysfunction.
Still, the cause of male impotence isn’t always psychological. Physical causes account for many cases of erectile dysfunction. In a double blind study which was performed by Dr. Elist and published in Urology, Dr. Elist proved that Cigarette smoking is a major cause of Impotency. Other male impotence causes include diabetic neuropathy, cardiovascular disorders affecting the blood supply to the pelvis, prescription medications, operations for cancer of the prostate, fractures that injure the spinal cord, multiple sclerosis, hormonal disorders, and alcoholism and other forms of drug abuse. In fact, erectile dysfunction may be one of the first signs of an underlying medical problem.
The physical and nonphysical causes of male impotence commonly interact. For instance, a minor physical problem that slows sexual response may cause anxiety about attaining an erection. Then the anxiety can worsen your erectile dysfunction, the good news is that most cases of erectile dysfunction could be treated and even a solution has been invented for the most severe cases.
