Fears and concerns may also contribute to erection problems, including:
Worry about aging.
Worry about a partner who has health problems.
Worry about finances.
Concerns about poor communication between you and your partner.
All of these situations and others-especially when associated with stress, depression, anger, or anxiety-can cause temporary stress leading to erection problems. Give yourself time to adjust to changes. It is okay if sex is not a priority for a while. Generally after a few weeks, the erection problem may pass.
