Causes of Impotence

Even in men who don't feel stressed, psychological factors can interfere with your ability to get or keep an erection.

Doctors often suspect a psychological cause of impotence in men who get normal erections some of the time, but not all the time. For example, some men notice that they have normal erections when they awaken in the morning, or when they see erotic movies or pictures, but not during sex with their usual partner.

Do you get normal erections at some times, but not at others?

Yes, I sometimes get normal erections.

No, I never (or almost never) get normal erections.
