Causes of Impotence and Weak Erection

Impotence is sexual dysfunction in men characterized by the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for performance of sexual intercourse. It may also take the form of coitus without ejaculation, orgasm without pleasure, and lack of desire in sex.

The problem of impotence has become very common. An estimated 10% of men are unable to get properly erect penis no matter how physically or psychologically they are stimulated. It is also found in several reports that nearly 50% of men struggle with impotence at least once in their lives.

The first time when a man suffers from impotence may become anxious and question his manhood. The second time, his anxiety builds and what happened previously takes on greater emotional significance. The third session of impotence may actually be brought on by recalling the prior incidents. Repetition sets up a vicious cycle of psychogenic caused by the mind impotence, which adds to any actual physical problem. The impotence treatment must begin with finding the cause.

The erection process is a physical phenomenon that begins with an increased flow of blood into the penis and ends with the blood slowly returning to the body general circulation. Sometimes the blood starts to recede sluggishly while the erection is still in progress because of a contraction of blood vessel valves in the penis. This decreases the hardness of the erection.

Some medical experts believe that the erection valves become rigid as part of the aging process and lose the ability to contract or relax. Hardening of the arteries, which often accompanies aging, may narrow the erection and producing the degree of hardness a man experienced when he was young.

Thus the main causes of impotence in middle aged men are clogging of blood circulation in the penis, dropping of penile blood pressure, lack of mobility of penile vein valves, and a combination of all these factors.

Many prescription drugs also affect sexual performance, causing impotence, loss of libido, delayed ejaculation, retrograde ejaculation, or even developments of female sex characteristics in men.

Types of Impotence

In primary impotence, a man has never been able to achieve erection sufficient for intercourse. In secondary impotence, a man has been able to achieve a normal erection and ejaculation in intercourse, but is not able to repeat the performance. This type of impotence is very common.

If a man has sexual desires but fails to get or hold an erection when exited (with partner and from masturbation) and does not have erection during sleep or upon a wakening , his problem has an organic or physical basis.

Functional impotence is caused due to failure to achieve or maintain an erection because of circulatory or nervous system disorder, effects of aging, anxiety stress or excessive use of alcohol or drugs including many medications taken for high blood pressure.

Organic impotence is the inability to achieve and maintain an erection because of any physical defects in the genitalia or the nervous system tract that controls erection. Psychic impotence is the functional inability of the man to perform satisfactory sexual intercourse in spite of desire and intact genital organs. The condition may take the form of premature ejaculation, or of inability to achieve or maintain erection and expel seminal fluid.

Impotence in young men is caused due to a feeling of sexual insecurity as a result of womens liberation. The liberated women are sexually more demanding. This demand threatens some men and causing impotence in them.
