"It is a time when one's spirit is subdued and sad, one knows now why; when the past seems a storm-swept desolation, life a vanity and a burden, and the future but a way to death."

-Mark Twain

The medical perspective of the causes of impotence has shifted. Common wisdom used to attribute almost all cases of impotence to psychological factors. Now investigators estimate that up to 85% of impotence cases are caused by medical or physical problems. Only 15% are psychologically based.It is often difficult to determine if the cause of erectile dysfunction is a physical or psychological one, or even some combination.
