Is Impotence All In Your Mind

Impotence is a mans inability or difficulty to have or maintain an erection. While there are physical reasons for this, in this article I plan to show you the psychological factors involved with impotence.

There are many reasons for psychological impotence. Depression, stress, pressures from home or work, anxiety, relationship problems, arguments, insecurities or even low self-esteem. Then there could be sexual boredom or los of intimacy. Since these problems are all emotional they tend to be easier to get through than physical problems.

Curing impotency that’s psychological has a very high success rate. At first it’s going to seem tough but only if you don’t want to fix it or worse you don’t even know you have a problem. But once you have finally decided that you do have a problem and you do need to work on it then there are different ways to treat it.

Psychosexual Therapy is the first way you should go. In this sort of therapy are given suggestions, techniques and or exercises to help spice up the relationship. This can be done through talks, discussions, and activities that can lift the stress or anxiety that hasten impotence.

Another is behavior modification. How this works is by bringing a new and positive outlook on ones self importance. Your partner can be a great help in this process. The down side of this is that it can take lots of time. The nice thing is that it is cheaper and it not only helps with impotence but can also help with ones personality.

- You need to talk to your partner about the things that are going on. You need to put some real thought into how you feel about your partner, yourself and your member.

- It’s very important to talk to your partner. It helps take some of the burden off of you and it’s good to know you have someone to listen to. If your partner is part of the problem then talking is good. The two of you should talk so you can come up with some solutions. Something very important is to not let the discussions turn into an argument.

- Another important thing to look at is lifestyle and how it affects your penile health. You take care of the rest of your body so why wouldn’t you take care of your penis? You have to trim fat out of your diet and be careful with the alcohol and nicotine input. Learn to eat healthy and do exercises.

- If after you have tried all the above and your still not seeing success then it may be time to see a professional therapist. What’s so very important to remember is that you shouldn’t be embarrassed by this problem and also remember that you’re not on your own. There is lots of help out there for you.
