What are the psychological causes of impotence?
Psychological causes of impotence often include work pressures, financial worries, fear of aging, or frustration with relationships. When someone is impotent during a period of depression or anger, it’s as if his body demands that he confront his feelings. Misunderstanding of normal male sexuality can also cause impotence. In your 40’s, it will take you longer to get an erection than in your 20’s. In your 60’s, it will take longer than in your 40’s. But there is no reason that a man of any age cannot enjoy a fulfilling sex life. A man who is depressed, under stress, or worried about his “performance” during sex may not be able to have an erection. Qualified therapists or counselors who specialize in the treatment of sexual problems can often help diagnose and sort through these problems.
