Depression and Erectile Dysfunction
A male’s ability to perform sexually is dictated by both his physiological and psychological health. Men who suffer from clinical depression can experience fatigue, apathy and low self-esteem which can lead to to erectile dysfunction. Conversely, erectile dysfunction can sometimes cause depression in men who become overwhelmed by the frustrations associated with having a serious sexual health problem and/or not being able to please their partner in the bedroom.
How depression affects erectile function:
• Many anti-depressant medications can have serious sexual side effects, including reduced libido or an inability to achieve a strong and lasting erection.
• Studies suggest that up to 82% of men who suffer from a moderate to severe form of erectile dysfunction also have some symptoms of depression.
• Over 70% of people with depression report a loss of sexual interest.
