Your GP will take a detailed sexual history to determine why your erections are failing and under what circumstances you are having sexual difficulties. You will also be asked about lifestyle factors (e.g. your job, work pressures, smoking habits, exercise, diet, alcohol intake and drug consumption). It is also normal to ask about your sex drive (libido), whether you still get night-time or early-morning erections and whether your partner is also concerned about your difficulties and whether or not your relationship is being affected.

Erections are neurovascular events, meaning that nerves and blood vessels (arteries and veins) are involved in the process of an erection and all must work properly to develop a hard erection that lasts long enough. Erection begins with sexual stimulation. Sexual stimulation can be tactile (for example, by a partner touching the penis or by masturbation) or mental (for example, by having sexual fantasies, or viewing porn). Sexual stimulation or sexual arousal causes the nerves going to the penis to release a chemical, nitric oxide. Nitric oxide increases the production of another chemical, cyclic GMP (cGMP), in the muscle of the corpora cavernosa. The cGMP causes the muscles of the corpora cavernosa to relax, and this allows more blood to flow into the penis. The incoming blood fills the corpora cavernosa, making the penis expand.
