Our expert says:
Stress is often a cause of Erectile Dysfunction. The blood flow to the penis simply doesn't happen when men experiece stress. The best definition of stress is the "body's response to real or imagined threat" and we go into a "fight or flight" response. The key here is the "real" or "imagined" threat. An issue which is underlying in our unconscious mind can trigger the physical response. Stress = no blood to the penis.
A therapist will help with the causes of the stress, but all men in their 40's and onwards should have a yearly checkup with a Urologist. The cuase could be psychological or physical - check them both.
Men are not particularly good at asking for advice or help, especially when it comes to issues like ED.
