Why Can’t I Get or Keep an Erection? | Men’s clinic weak erection cure Sandton, specialists in curing male sexual health problems like weak erections. Like the stock market and foreign car engines, erections are mysterious things that seem to have a mind of their own. When they don’t happen, it can be disappointing, at the very least.
Decreased blood flow, typically because vessels that supply blood to the penis have narrowed, is often the cause of erectile dysfunction (ED) in older men. Emotional issues are more commonly at the root of it for younger men.
Regardless of the reasons, it’s important to look for answers.
Probably not. Most cases of ED are caused by physical problems alone or in combination with emotional ones.
Just about any medical condition that affects your nerves or blood vessels could hurt your ability to have erections. High blood pressure, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, and diabetes can all lead to ED. In fact, over 50% of men with diabetes find themselves in that situation.
Hormonal issues such as low testosterone levels can also factor in, more often for older men. Prostate cancer treatments including surgery and radiation may be the culprit.
If you have erections in the morning or while sleeping, the problem probably isn’t physical. Stress, anxiety, and depression can cause ED. Why Can’t I Get or Keep an Erection? | Men’s clinic weak erection cure Sandton, specialists in curing male sexual health problems like weak erections

A Weak Erection (also known as impotence or erectile dysfunction) is not a disease, but a secondary condition brought on by other, primary causes. It is a side effect, a symptom of something else. Thirty years ago, when men went to their doctors asking for help for erectile problems, they were told that there was no treatment because it was caused by aging, or it was all in their heads (psychological). A generation of research has been conducted in the intervening years.
About 85% of this problem is due to a physical (organic) cause. Slightly more than 10% is psychological, or “all in your head.” The other 5% is unknown. The 85% figure includes a mixture of physical impotence with psychological involvement. Once a man fails to become erect a few times, he places more stress on himself to have an erection by sheer willpower. When this too fails, he often begins to have a psychological problem. The main point here is this: 85% of all impotent men are that way because something within the body, other than the penis, is malfunctioning. Psychological Impotence describes the problem when physical causes cannot be found. Pure psychological impotence usually comes on suddenly. It can be caused by job stress, a troubled marriage, or financial worries. Any nagging everyday situation which occupies conscious and subconscious thoughts can cause impotence. Depression or concern over poor sexual performance can cause it. Depression or concern over poor sexual performance can cause it. It should be noted that every man experiences temporary periods of impotence at one time or another during his life. That’s entirely normal, and you don’t need treatment unless the problem is persistent.
The consensus of most authorities is that the table below represents an accurate distribution of the various causes of physical impotence. The important thing to remember is that most causes of impotence are physical and often beyond your control. While it is not good to have these physical problems (diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke or prostate disease, etc.), they are conditions you can probably accept and feel comfortable about trying to correct.
Vascular disease is the leading cause of impotence. Vascular disorders include arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), hypertension, high cholesterol, and other conditions which interfere with blood flow. If poor blood flow occurs in the heart or coronary vessels, it causes heart attacks; when it occurs in the brain it causes strokes; and when it occurs in the penis, it causes impotence.
Venous leakage occurs when the penile veins are unable to close off (constrict) properly during an erection. Constriction of the veins holds the blood in the penis to maintain the erection. When the veins “leak,” blood escapes too quickly back into the body, and the erection fails.
Diabetes is a very common cause of impotence. This disease can damage both blood vessels and nerves. When nerves are affected, the brain cannot properly transmit the sexual stimulus that creates an erection. About 50% of all diabetic men experience impotence after the age of 55.
Radical pelvic surgery may also result in impotence. Surgical procedures involving the prostate gland the bladder or colon may sever the nerves involved in erectile response. Radiation treatment in this area can also affect the erectile process.
Nerve disease is another cause of a weak erection or impotence. Neurologic disorders affect the nervous system and include multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and spinal cord injury with paralysis.
Deficiencies of the endocrine system are another source of erectile dysfunction. For example, low levels of testosterone or thyroid hormone often cause poor-quality erections. Excessive production of prolactin by the pituitary gland may contribute to a low testosterone level and lack of desire. Diabetes is classified as an endocrine disease.
Prescription drugs often cause Impotence as a side effect, and over 200 medications fall into this category. Never change a dosage or stop taking a prescribed drug without the advice of your doctor.
Substance abuse affects erectile function as well. Illegal drugs and the excessive use of alcohol or cigarettes can seriously damage the blood vessels and nerves involved in a normal erection.
