The ability to achieve hard and firm erections is extremely improtant for a man to satisfy a woman sexually and when he is not able to get an erections or has problem maintaining erections he is said to have erectile dysfunction.
Things can go wrong at any point of the 3 stages of producing and maintaining an erection:
- First Stage: Sexual arousal, getting sexually stimulated from our thoughts and senses.
- Second Stage Erection: The brain communicates the sexual arousal to the body which increases the blood flow to the penis.
- Third Stage Erection: Blood vessels that supply the penis relax allowing an increased blood supply to flow into the shafts that produce the erection.
If anything affects any of these stages or the delicate balance between them, erectile dysfunction ensues.
The most common psychological problems can generally be related to: inhibited sexual desire, anxiety disorders, depression, mental fatigue, stress, guilt, relationship problems, and lack of interest in sex by partner etc.
Often, the fundamental problem is anxiety or depression. One study found that erectile dysfunction is nearly twice as common among depressed men as it is among those who aren’t depressed.
Keep in mind, though, that nonphysical causes of erectile dysfunction play a contributing role in most cases, no matter what the cause. Even if the cause is purely physical or medical, erectile difficulty is almost certain to have an emotional and psychological impact.
These emotional consequences can lead to the kind of performance anxiety that triggers more severe erectile dysfunction. When this happens, a man may begin to avoid his partner or make excuses for not having sex – actions that can perpetuate anxiety or depression.
At this stage, the role of the psychological difficulties may in fact overshadow the original medical or physical cause. To cure the problem, you’ll need to address both the physical problem and the psychological one.
