Anxiety can be because of impotence

According to the latest research conducted by the group of scientists, anxiety is the major cause of erectile dysfunction ED. Anxiety was previously considered to be one of the causes of erectile dysfunction but, now anxiety is one of the major causes of erectile dysfunction. Anxiety is the cause of erectile dysfunction in around 45% of the individuals suffering with erectile dysfunction. During the sexual encounter, the pressure to perform well in the bed, make men conscious, thus men suffers with anxiety, finally leading to the erectile dysfunction. Men are not able to achieve the erection or retain the erection for the sufficient amount of time during the sexual intercourse due to the anxiety. Sometimes the daily life tensions make the man anxious and thus he cannot perform in the bed.

Anxiety is defined as the feeling of nervousness, apprehension, fear, or worry. Some of the anxiety disorders are panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress syndrome, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and generalized anxiety disorder. All or some of these disorders leads to the erectile dysfunction. An anxiety disorder is a serious mental illness. For people with anxiety disorders, worry and fear are constant and overwhelming, and can be crippling. When a man is suffering with panic disorder, the man gets panic during the sexual encounter and this makes him lose the erection before the intercourse and thus he suffers from the erectile dysfunction. Due to the obsessive compulsive disorder, men are unable to perform in bed as they get very soft erections and thus are not able to have a penetrative sex.

I have ED for over a year now and I have been to my doctor to get checked and everything is fine but I still have it. I got this when I turned 40 and had no problems until now.I have started exercising and eating healthy food for the past couple of months. I used to drink and smoke cannibis. Also I am wondering whether part of it is due to anxiety as I do worry a lot about my problem.

Yes it's true. But nowadays people are prefering generic medication like generic viagra, kamagra etc for enchancing their sexual life. You can use them to enjoy your sexual life.

Yes Anxiety can cause impotency issues in men. You are too nervous as well as too anxious about your hardons or the lack of one. You must do some things to relax. Let the woman do things to arouse you and also keep you aroused, then attempt sex. Hope this can help you.
