Does this Sound like You?
The man is in a great relationship for several months now and everything is going well. He realizes the relationship is starting to get serious. The man starts to have this internal conflict within himself about his inadequacies and poor confidence, especially about performing “in the bedroom”. When he starts to feel the lack of confidence, it commonly shows up sexually. Because of the poor confidence he has, the feeling of inadequacy starts to cause sexual performance issues. In time, this can lead to impotence. The lack of confidence, causes anxiety about not being able to perform, which then causes a poor erection which then leads to premature ejaculations. The lack of confidence and fear of failure, does not necessarily stem from his partner. In most cases, it comes from a past history of being put down, humiliated or embarrassed by a family member, or another person such as a teacher or even his peers, who bullied him or made fun of him at a younger age. The inadequacies he has dealt with in his head have haunted him ever since and has affected his performance, whether it be in his relationship, job, standing up for himself or sexual. The man will sometimes find a way to leave (self-sabotage) the relationship, because he fears his poor self-esteem and lack of self-confidence will be discovered by his partner.

What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
Erectile Dysfunction, also known as impotence, is a disorder that can devastate a man’s self-esteem and ruin his relationships. Erectile Dysfunction (ED) refers to the difficulty or inability to get or sustain an erection firm enough to perform sexual intercourse, a very common problem in men. Some men may experience problems with erections occasionally, from being stressed out, exhausted, overworked, or a history of verbal, physical, or sexual abuse. Sometimes, impotency may indicate an underlying health condition that needs to be addressed.
Erectile Dysfunction Symptoms:
- Trouble getting an erection
- Trouble maintaining an erection
- Reduced sexual desire
- Premature or delayed ejaculation

The brain plays a key role in triggering the series of physical events that cause an erection, starting with feelings of sexual excitement. A number of things can interfere with sexual feelings and cause or worsen erectile dysfunction, such as emotional stress, which can cause a guy to have problems getting or maintaining an erection.

- Sometimes it is a combination of physical and psychological issues that causes erectile dysfunction
