What are the Major Causes of Impotence?

Many men believe that impotence is simply an unavoidable symptom of aging, but this is often not the case. For the most part, impotence is caused by physical problems that stem from non-sexually-related health issues.

Here are some of the major causes of impotence:

  • High cholesterol narrows and blocks arteries that carry vital blood flow to the penis and can cause nerve damage.
  • Diabetes can damage the arteries and veins that help get blood flow to the penis, making it increasingly difficult to achieve an erection.
  • Depression can cause impotence in two ways. First, the debilitating lethargy and change in brain chemistry associated with depression can limit erectile function. Secondly, medications used to treat depression can suppress libido as well as well erectile function.

There are many causes of impotence, but the good news is that it is often a very treatable condition and not just a sign of age. Many men with impotence can regain their sexual function and please their partners once again by consulting with the physicians at Boston Medical Group. It is not uncommon for men to report positive results after just one visit!
