Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be one of the most discouraging physical problems affecting the majority of men at some point in their life. Although you may think of ED as just an older man’s problem, erectile dysfunction affects men of all ages. As a matter of fact, about 20% of men in their 20’s suffer from issues in the bedroom. But, despite ED being such a common condition, most men are reluctant to talk about it. Never mind, admit they have it.
Erectile Dysfunction and your mind
You may be surprised to learn that your brain plays a bigger role than you think. In fact, ultimately your brain is the most powerful sexual organ. Although only about 20% of erectile dysfunction starts out from psychological issues, eventually even physiological ED becomes a mental and emotional problem. Therefore, ED has both medical and psychological causes, and is often a mix of both. Even when you have a known physiological cause with blood flow, there is often a psychological component as a result.
How do I know if I should seek help for ED?
Most men will have an occasional episode when they cannot perform in the bedroom. Maybe too much to drink? Or stress or a small relationship spat? This is not ED. Erectile dysfunction is diagnosed when the inability to achieve or maintain an erection prevents you from having a satisfying sex life. In addition, inability to perform puts a strain even on the best relationships. As a result, regardless of the underlying cause, men lose self-confidence. Therefore, whether psychological or physiological ED, when you think you won’t get it up, then you don’t get it up. Your mind exacerbates the problem.
Psychological causes of ED?
All erections essentially begin in the mind. A touch or thought sends signals to the brain. Subsequently. the brain sends nerve signals which increases the blood flow to the penis resulting in an erection. First, you must rule out physiological causes. At Simply Men’s Health, our experienced physicians examine you and perform a number of tests to determine the root cause of your erectile dysfunction. Finally, after ruling out a physical cause, the root cause is determined to be psychological
The following are the most common psychological causes of erectile dysfunction:
STRESS and ANXIETY
One of the leading psychological causes of bedroom problems is life stressors. For example, work stress, financial concerns, relationship issues can quickly take your head out of the game. As a result, your brain doesn’t send the signals to trigger an erection.
Then, this failure to perform due to stress causes anxiety. This anxiety causes more stress resulting in a vicious cycle. In the same way, physiological ED also causes anxiety, which exacerbates the condition.
From time to time, men can experience an isolated failure to perform. But, in some cases, one or two bad experiences can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Just thinking about the failure cause anxiety. As a result, the mind plays tricks and causes performance anxiety leading to psychological ED.
Performance anxiety can also result form the condition called Premature Ejaculation (PE). Although, this often is a life-time problem beginning in one’s teens, it can also develop later in life. So if you have experienced PE, ejaculating too early, in the past, this can add to performance anxiety.
Relationships are very complex and maintaining a healthy relationship takes work. Consequently, relationship stress can spill over into the bedroom affecting your sex life. So just as erectile dysfunction can cause problems in a relationship; similarly, problems in a relationship can be the root cause of psychological ED.
Depression is more than just feeling sad. Actually, depression can be an overwhelming feeling that weights you down in both body and mind. Moreover, depression not only causes psychological symptoms, but can result in physical disease as well. Therefore, as a result of depression you can not only lose your sexual desire, but you may not be able to perform as well
GUILT and LOW SELF ESTEEM
Feelings of guilt, whether from inability to please partner or infidelity or relationship issues, can psychologically inhibit erections. In addition, guilt is often associated with feelings of low self-esteem, which also linked with depression. Thus, guilt, depression and low self-esteem interact and cause psychological erectile dysfunction.
You may be surprised to learn that too much pornography can commonly lead to psychological erectile dysfunction. To explain, watching too much porn can set up unrealistic expectations regarding sexual activity with your partner. As a result, your brain gets conditioned to a certain level to achieve arousal which is not realistic.
