Even ancient myths and legends contain mentioning about men sexual disorders. Hippocrates noted that psychological impotence is the result of an extremely high level of men’s concern about their duties with a limited amount of care on the part of women. Psychological erectile dysfunction occurs due to mental disorders, which depend on violations in the sexual sphere.
Psychogenic impotence in most episodes occurs due to the oppression of the erection by the Central nervous system. The factors that cause the development of erectile dysfunction in men include psychoneurosis and drug dependence.
So what does the expression “phobic neurosis” mean? This phrase is explained as the fear of sexual relations. As a result of such fear, symptoms of a non-existent disease develop in patients. This has a negative impact on the psychological state and contributes to the development of neurosis, which needs to be treated. In this case, neurosis is no longer the cause of the disease, but the consequence of a fictional phobia. After all, with a single unsuccessful attempt, a person becomes fixated on this and becomes insecure, thinking that failures will accompany him in the future. The severe form of psychological erectile dysfunction is difficult to treat when the failure occurred during the first sex of a young man. As a result, the following sexual acts are unsuccessful. However, all these problems are the result of concentration of attention on a single unsuccessful case. It is not connected with any violations of sexual function. Thus, the patient has a short temper and exhaustion, which, in turn, has a negative impact on potency.
As is known, psychological impact of erectile dysfunction is a reflection of a person’s mental state. It is associated with different emotions, namely:
- anger and fear of failure in sexual relationships.
This is considered to be the cause of erectile dysfunction in men, which should be treated. Psychological impotence most commonly affects men who set themselves extremely high standards in sex life. As a result, doubt and concern begin to develop, which lead to failure in sex. And this new failure will confirm the fictional problem that you are trying to get rid of.
Note!A very important factor preventing the conduct of a full sexual intercourse is considered to be violations of the emotional sphere, which arise as a result of doubts and low self-esteem.
Therefore, the reasons for problems with erection are dissatisfaction with appearance, figure or genitals. Another reason may be idealization of the partner, when a person considers himself unworthy and tries to prove his perfection in bed and does not succeed. Psychogenic impotence can occur against the background of fear of unwanted pregnancy of the partner or infection of STIs, which are difficult to treat. Another reason may be sex in unusual places.
If you have any problems with potency, you should not leave this fact without attention, because the symptoms of psychological erectile dysfunction in men will not pass independently.

If there are such symptoms, these drugs should be used once in 24 hours, on the eve of sexual relations. Treatment using antidepressants is possible (in some cases).
