The Basics

Erectile dysfunction is often a consequence of trauma. Therapy treats both.

The conditions conspire to create what may seem to be an insurmountable twosome. It's not.

Positive, negative and traumatic experiences affect libido, but these situations can be managed.

Mental health issues can deliver a double whammy to erectile function, so weigh your options.


A negative view of your body could have a negative impact on your erections.

Therapy with a significant other can help men cope with—or maybe even improve—erectile problems.

When mental blocks lead to erectile issues, a therapist can help, but know what to expect.

Therapy designed specifically for sexual function bridges patients' mental and physical issues.

Living with Mental Health Conditions and ED

If this important chemical messenger is out of balance, libido and mental health can suffer.

Even if the physiological side is good to go, the psychological side can battle the bulge.

Often overlooked in men, anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder have sexual side effects.

Talking will help in the long run, but pleasure can be achieved in the absence of an erection.
