Impotence information & resources

Impotence is a wide-ranging problem that can be caused by both emotional and physical difficulties. On the physical side, impotence can be caused by circulatory problems, nervous system disorders, and diabetes. Cigarette smoking, keeping a poor diet, and emotional stress, may exacerbate problems of sexual impotence. Another cause of impotence that may be at the root of erectile dysfunction disorders is related to prescription medications. Several medications have been linked to problems of sexual impotence, or may interfere with the patient's overall sexual health.

Most people are surprised to learn that roughly half of all erectile dysfunction disorders are caused by non-physical factors. Most cases of impotence are caused by problems related to stress and anxiety. One fairly simple way that doctors determine the root cause of impotence is by taking a simple medical history. If the patient is capable of sustaining an erection while asleep or during masturbation then the problem is more than likely psychological and emotional in nature. It's important to note that experiencing one episode of impotence does not necessarily indicate a serious long-term erectile disorder. Rather, it's relatively common for men to experience bouts with impotence, especially as they age. It is estimated that almost 20 percent of men at age 60 will experience bouts of impotence on a fairly regular basis. By age 80, it is estimated that nearly 70 percent of men will experience some form of sexual impotence.
