💋Psychological Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
“I’ve been having erectile problems for a few months now and I think it’s more in my MIND than my body. But I’m not sure because I just haven’t had much “drive” for anything lately, especially sex. Can you tell me more about the psychological causes of impotence and what I can do to fix this?”
Your mind is your biggest “sexual organ” and this means that your mind DOES affect your sexual desires and performance.
Psychological factors are responsible for about 15%-20% of all cases of erectile dysfunction (ED)
Sometimes this is due to a secondary reaction to an underlying physical cause. In some cases, the psychological effects of ED may stem from childhood abuse or sexual trauma.
6 psychological causes of Erectile Dysfunction…
Stress comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s job or money related. Sometimes it has to do with the current relationship(s) you’re in — intimate or friendships.
Constant worry, negative thoughts, lack of sleep and even physical stress all cause a change in your “brain chemistry” due to a change in your hormones by increasing your “stress” hormone, Cortisol.
Remember, your mind and body are connected and they work WITH each other.
So what happens in your mind, can manifest physically and in this case, cause Erectile Dysfunction..
Once a man experiences ED, he may become overly worried that the problem will happen again. This can lead to “performance anxiety,” or a fear of sexual failure.
Unfortunately, the more you think about it, the more anxious you become and the worst the situation is.
Keep in mind that similar to “stress”, when you have anxiety your brain chemistry and hormones change, all of this reduces blood flow to your penis and thus, causing impotence.
Drugs used to treat anxiety only make ED problems worse!
Feeling guilty can also cause ED. A man may feel guilty that he is not satisfying his partner. Or he may feel guilty about something hurtful that he’s done.
A common cause of ED is depression because it affects a person both psychologically and physically.
Depression can cause ED even when a man is completely comfortable in sexual situations.
When you’re depressed, you don’t have the “drive”, both in and out of the bedroom.
Similar to anti-anxiety drugs, anti-depressant medications only make ED problems worse.
This can be due to prior episodes of ED, thus a feeling of inadequacy.
Or it can be the result of other issues unrelated to sexual performance.
You may have low self-esteem because of how you look naked or how much money you make or the kind of job you have or other superficial factors.
You may also have low self-esteem if you’re comparing yourself to your woman’s past — previous boyfriends, sexual experiences, etc.
Also, statics show that men who watch a lot of porn, tend to have low self-esteem due to the size of their penis — “is mine big enough?…”, which causes even more mental stress and anxiety.
This may come as a result of age and a subsequent loss of interest in sex, stemming from problems in a couple’s relationship.
If there’s a lack of effort to be affectionate or sexual by both people in the relationship, psychologically you just stop caring, wanting or even thinking about “sex”.
As stated in the beginning of today’s video, your mind is your “biggest sexual organ”.
We all have things that turn us on or off. Fetishes and so forth.
If you’re not in a positive place psychologically, your body will react accordingly.
Mental and emotional stress, worry, anxiety and depression AFFECT your body physically… There is a drop in your “sex drive” hormones.
When your mind and body is under “stress” and excess worry, it has no need, want or desire to “procreate” and thus, your body shuts down your libido.
So, what’s the solution?…
In life, you get what you focus on.
So if you’re constantly thinking about what you do NOT have, your mind will be under stress, you’ll have anxiety, you’ll be depressed and have low self-esteem.
Your mind can have only ONE feeling at a time…
So instead of having “negative” feelings, try your best to have an “attitude of gratitude”
Think of all the great things that you have to be grateful for in your life.
