What causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction can have a wide range of causes that range from stress and low self-confidence to physical impairments such as heart disease or high blood pressure.
Male sexual arousal is complex. It involves the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Sometimes, a combination of physical and psychological issues cause erectile dysfunction. For this reason, patients that are experiencing erectile dysfunction should first be evaluated for any underlying physical and psychological conditions.

The best way to prevent erectile dysfunction is to live a healthy lifestyle. Work with your physician to manage any medical conditions you may have. Exercise regularly and take steps to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. If treating the underlying conditions doesn’t help, there may be medications and assistive devices that can be prescribed.
