Physical causes of impotence
Impaired blood flow to the penis
A very common cause of impotence is when blood flow to the penis is impaired due to atherosclerosis, also known as hardening of the arteries.
Impaired blood flow out of the penis
In some men, blood can flow in to the penis easily, but the problem is that it leaks out again, so an erection cannot be sustained.
Many medicines can cause erection problems as a side effect, including: diuretics; high blood pressure medications; cholesterol-lowering drugs; some types of antipsychotics; antidepressants; cancer treatments; non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); and epilepsy medications.
Diabetes contributes to impotence because it can damage blood vessels and cause a type of nerve damage known as peripheral neuropathy.
The advanced stages of prostate cancer can affect the nerves and arteries that are vital for an erection.
Peyronie’s disease is an uncommon condition that affects a man’s sex life because his penis curves abnormally and causes pain when he has an erection.
Diseases of the nervous system
Multiple sclerosis (MS) and other degenerative diseases of the nervous system can impair the nerves involved in erections.
Many men find that when they’re suffering from depression, they lose interest in sex and can’t get or keep an erection.
Low levels of the male hormone, testosterone, are more commonly linked to a lowered sex drive, rather than impotence itself. Only a small percentage of cases of impotence are caused by hormone deficiency.
Injury and accidents
Impotence can be caused by spinal cord injury; injury to your sex organs; or a pelvic fracture.
Surgery to organs near the nerve pathways of the penis, such as the bladder, rectum and prostate, can cause nerve or artery damage to the penis, resulting in the inability to have an erection.
Smoking contributes to vascular disease, so it can contribute to erectile dysfunction by affecting blood flow to the penis.
Excessive alcohol use
Alcoholism can cause permanent nerve damage, resulting in impotence. This nerve damage is called peripheral neuropathy.
Illicit drug use
Illicit drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, barbiturates, and amphetamines act on the central nervous system, impairing the body’s ability to respond sexually.
Nerve and artery damage can be caused by cycling too hard, rodeo riding, or prolonged use of a rowing machine, resulting in the inability to get an erection.
