What causes Impotence?
About 70% of cases of impotence are actually caused by an underlying disease,
such as diabetes or kidney disease,
rather than a mental or physical problem.
Secondary impotence from various drugs and medications is common.
Physical damage from injury or surgery is another common cause of impotence.
Psychological causes of impotence are estimated to be only 10-20% of cases.
Although psychological aspects such as anxiety and fear of sexual failure
are commonly associated with impotence, they are not usually the real case,
but are a reaction to having impotence.
Impotence usually has a physical cause, such as disease, injury, or
drug side-effects. Any disorder that impairs blood flow in the penis has
the potential to cause impotence.
