How common is erectile dysfunction?

ED is a very common condition, particularly in older men. It is estimated that half of all men between 40 and 70 years of age will experience ED at least once.

ED can have a range of causes, both physical and psychological. Possible physical causes include:

heart disease • diabetes • high blood pressure • hormonal problems

Possible psychological causes of ED include:

stress • anxiety • depression • relationship problems

Symptoms

Sometimes, erectile dysfunction (ED) only occurs in certain situations.

For example, you may be able to obtain an erection during masturbation, or you may find that you sometimes wake up with an erection. However, you may be unable to obtain an erection when you are with your sexual partner.

In these circumstances, it is likely that the underlying cause of ED is primarily psychological. However, if you are unable to obtain an erection under any circumstances, it is likely that the underlying cause is primarily physical.

ED can often have both physical and psychological causes. For example, if you have diabetes, it may be difficult for you to get an erection, which may cause you to become anxious about the situation. The combination of diabetes and anxiety may lead to an episode of ED.

Other causes of erectile dysfunction

Other possible causes of ED include:

obesity • smoking • alcohol • tiredness • using recreational drugs
