Insecurity and impotence

Posted in Erectile Dysfunction 15 Mar, 2011

Emotional insecurity is a problem that pretty much everyone experiences at some point in their life. It may crop up because of work worries, fears about a relationship, concerns about a family member’s health... the list goes on.

Emotional insecurity can also occur because of sex. There are all sorts of things that people worry about when they think about love making. “Am I good enough for my partner?”... “Is my body adequate?”... “How long will I last?”

Worries like these can directly cause impotence. They can do so by affecting the hormonal balance in the body. Negative thinking can actually make you impotent! And then to make things worse, being impotent can, in itself, leave you feeling insecure.

Of course impotence has physical causes too. High blood pressure is just one of these. But this is why doctors say that, for thousands of men, overcoming impotence is about overcoming insecurities.

If you are one of the millions of men worldwide suffering from impotence then speak to your doctor about the possible reasons. It may be that they recommend taking erectile dysfunction medications such as Viagra or Cialis. Or it may be that they recommend psychological interventions.
