When you experience psychological erectile dysfunction, it does not mean there is anything wrong with you. In fact, it means that you are quite normal because you are human and humans sometimes suffer from things like stress, depression, and boredom. There is no reason to be embarrassed or to avoid discussing the problem with your doctor or partner.

Psychological Erectile Dysfunction Happens to Everyone

What kinds of psychological erectile dysfunction can a man have? One of the more common causes is stress. When a man is stressed out it can severely affect his sexual function. If he is unable to handle the amount of stress in his life on his own, working with a counselor to learn to manage stress is a good idea.

Another common cause of psychological erectile dysfunction is anxiety. Men sometimes worry that they are inadequate or that they will not be able to satisfy their partner. No matter how attracted he is to his partner, this anxiety can really put a damper on things. This may cause a vicious cycle as his worst fears of not being able to perform have come true.

Other psychological causes include depression and yes, even boredom. Men enjoy variety in their sexual lives and a lack of this can cause him to lose interest. Happily, adding variety to one's sex life is not difficult. If you are having problems, talk to your doctor or counselor. You may also want to try an herbal supplement to give you that little extra boost while you are working through your psychological issues. A little extra help never hurt anyone!
