Psychological Causes of ED

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a medical term that describes the inability to achieve and/or maintain an erection adequate for sexual function. This condition is one of the most common sexual issues for men.

Erectile difficulties shouldn’t come as a surprise, because they’re fairly common. How common, exactly? Some studies suggests that up to 40% of men under the age of 40 experience ED at some point.

Erections are the result of a complicated mix of physical and psychological factors. Because of this, the causes of ED can also be physical, psychological, or a combination of both.
