Cigarettes double the risk of erectile dysfunction.

Getting older, your body will determine the balance of hormone production in your body. Testosterone deficiency or too much prolactin is closely related to erectile dysfunction.

Depression can result in a lack of libido, but it can also be marked by a problem, e.g. erectile dysfunction. If it continues, it will cause anxiety or depression to impotence.
7. Nervous condition
Stroke, spinal problem, multiple sclerosis and dementia can affect the transfer of nerve impulses to your brain and penis. Disrupted transfer of impulses risks causing erectile dysfunction.
