Psychological problems cause erectile dysfunction by reducing the physical responses needed to get a strong erection in various ways:

  • Stress reduces blood flow to the penis


  • Anxiety reduces testosterone


  • Depression affects sex drive and response


  • Low mood suppresses neurochemicals like dopamine needed for orgasm


  • Anti-depressant medications  affect libido and  sexual response


  • Poor emotional health affects relationships
