Therapy types for men with ED due to psychological issues include; couples sex therapy which works to build intimacy; cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which addresses issues such as low confidence and negative thinking; and psychosexual counselling which offers the opportunity to discuss issues related to sex.
Feelings of inadequacy or failure may complicate ED symptoms. ED may result in an inability to maintain an erection sometimes, but not every time. Other signs are the ability to get an erection but unable to maintain it to complete sexual relations, or an inability to attain an erection at all.
There are several areas of the brain involved in sexual behavior and erections. In psychogenic ED, the brain may send messages that prevent (inhibit) erections or psychogenic ED may be related to the body's response to stressors and the release of chemicals (catecholamines) that tighten the penile muscles, preventing them from relaxing.
