more about Impotence

  • Impotence is the inability to maintain a sufficiently erect penis to perform sexual intercourse. Erections in the penis occur because or proper blood supply (arterial) to the penis. Proper balance of nerve conduction to the smooth muscles that control outflow of blood from the penis (i.e., keep blood in the penis so it stays erect) is essential, and the contraction of other muscles (bulbocavernosus and ischiocavernosus muscles) help to maintain an erection. Organic (actual medical problems) causes are more common than psychological causes of impotence.
