Erectile Dysfunction (ED) can have many causes- both physical and psychological. Learn about the causes of ED and how to treat it.

2. ED – Erectile Dysfunction Causes

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual performance. ED can affect men of all ages and can be caused by physical and psychological conditions.

Most men experience occasional episodes of ED, usually related to stress or alcohol consumption. However, regular ED can be a sign of an underlying health condition, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or low testosterone.

ED can also be caused by psychological conditions, such as anxiety or depression. If you’re experiencing regular ED, it’s important to see your doctor to rule out underlying health conditions.
