16 Causes of Impotence in Men

Impotence is the inability to obtain or maintain an erection that is firm enough for a man to have intercourse, or the inability to keep an erection long enough to ejaculate inside the vagina. Impotence is at times confused for Infertility but impotence can simply be put as a type of infertility. There is a broad difference between Impotence and Infertility. There are several factors that can cause Impotence but today, we will be discussing 16 Causes of Impotence in Men.

1.  Vascular Disorders :


Vascular disorders are the number one cause of Impotence, particularly atherosclerosis, also called hardening of the arteries. With age and underlying disease like such as high blood pressure, arteries become narrow, and smooth muscle relaxation decreases, diminishing the amount of blood entering the Penis. Vascular diseases affect blood vessels. They lower blood flow to organs such as the heart, brain, and kidneys. If they cut blood flow to the penis, they can cause erectile dysfunction. Vascular diseases are the cause of Erectile Dysfunctions in as many as 5 to 7 out 10 who of men who have it

2. Impaired blood flow out of the Penis

In some men, Blood flows into the Penis easily but the problem is that it leaks out again, so an erection cannot be sustained. This is called venous leakages. The major principle of erection is the storage of blood in the penis, so if the vein cannot store blood very well for a certain period of time, you lose the erection. It’s also linked to diabetes, Peyronie’s disease

3. Hormonal Imbalance

Low level of the male hormone, testosterone is more commonly linked to lowered sex drive, rather than impotence itself. Only about 2% of cases of impotence are caused by hormonal imbalance. Hormone abnormalities can cause erectile dysfunctions but rarely. These include increased prolactin, a hormone made by the pituitary gland. They also include steroid abuse by bodybuilders, too much or too little thyroid hormone, and hormones used to treat prostate cancer.

4. Neurologic Impairment

Injuries to the spinal cord or brain or neurological disease such as Alzheimer’s disease can lead to impotence. Erectile dysfunction is commonly associated with multiple sclerosis, stroke, and spinal cord and nerve injuries, and Parkinson’s disease. Nerve damage from pelvic surgeries can cause erectile dysfunctions.

”Prescriptions drugs not only suppress symptoms, but they also cause the body to retain its foul poison”

6. Chronic Tobacco use

Smoking has been shown to affect arterial blood flow and may also affect the arteries in the penis, reducing the blood flows necessary to maintain an erection.

7. Diabetes

Both Forms of Diabetes, type I (Insulin-dependent), and types II (Insulin-independent) are common causes of impotence: men who have diabetes are 3 times more likely to have impotence than other men. Diabetes can cause changes in blood flow through narrowing of the arteries, or damage to nerve endings in the penis.

When a man becomes sexually aroused, a chemical called nitric oxide is released into his bloodstream. This nitric oxide tells the arteries and the muscles in the penis to relax, which allows more blood to flow into the penis. This gives the man an erection.

When their blood sugar levels get too high, less nitric oxide is produced. This can mean that there is not enough blood flowing into the penis to get or keep an erection. Low levels of nitric oxide are often found in those with diabetes.

8. Pelvic surgery

Surgery or radiation to the prostate, bladder, rectum, or colon can cause never damage in the surrounding area. The damage may interfere with the signal that must pass between the brain and sexual organs to allow erection and orgasm.
