Causes of Impotence, Part II

More causes of impotence are listed below:

Hormone Disorders

Hormone disorders accounts for very few cases of impotence. Testosterone deficiency, which occurs rarely, can result in a loss of sexual desire and loss of erection. Among other conditions, an excess of the hormone prolactin, caused by pituitary gland tumor, reduces levels of testosterone.

Nerve Disorders

Nerve disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease, may also result in impotence. Spinal cord and brain injuries can also cause impotence when they interrupt the transfer of nerve impulses from the brain to the penis.

Peyronie's Disease

Peyronie's Disease is a rare inflammatory condition that causes scarring of erectile tissue. Scarring produces curvature of the penis that can interfere with sexual function and cause painful erections.

Venous Leak

This is the condition when the veins in the penis cannot prevent blood from leaving the penis during erection, erection cannot be maintained. Venous leak can be a result of injury, disease, or damage to the veins in the penis.

Psychological Conditions

If a man experiences loss of erection, he may worry that it will happen again. This can produce anxiety associated with performance and may lead to chronic problems during sex. If the cycle continues, it can result in impotence. Depression, guilt, worry, stress, and anxiety all contribute to erectile dysfunction. Psychological factors in impotence work towards magnifying the significance of physical factors leading to ED.
