Looking at events in your life, your relationships, and your feelings
can often help you figure out things that may contribute to
erection problems (erectile dysfunction).
Review the following events and concerns. Did your erection problems
begin at this time? If so, this may be a factor. Talk to your partner or others
about how this affected you and your relationship.
Events that are sometimes associated with erection problems
Fears and concerns may also contribute to erection problems,
All of these situations and others—especially when associated with
stress, depression, anger, or anxiety—can cause temporary stress leading to
erection problems. Give yourself time to adjust to changes. It is okay if sex
is not a priority for a while. Generally after a few weeks, the erection
problem may pass.
