I'm Dr Chaithanya, General Physician, trying to help you today.

Organic Impotence is an inability to penetrate firmly an erected penis into the vagina or an inability t sustain erection till the completion of intercourse.

The physical causes for organic impotence can be divided into various categories, and I have enlisted everything here.




Pelvic trauma



Spinal cord injury

Multiple sclerosis





Postoperative nerve damage



Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism

Pituitary–hypothalamic tumors

Primary and secondary hypogonadism

Thyroid disease

Systemic disease



Peyronie's disease

Sequelae of priapism

am Doctor Thomas, a double board certified doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine, with advanced training in several other fields. I am a clinician of over 20 years experience. I will give you an initial answer or ask you a question, but be sure to use reply to expert to communicate with me as needed.

The common cause of endocrine impotence is diabetes.

A common cause of vascular is venous leak. This needs a urologist and ultrasound to diagnose. This is one of the first things we think of clinically.

Hypertension in general and high cholesterol.

Low testosterone levels from any cause.

Prostate disease.

These are the ones we see in the office, along with obesity [all too common], metabolic syndrome [common], parkinson's disease, heart disease [common] , tobacco use, sleep disorders [also common and missed]. Alcohol [common]. Medications [common].

I will mention that if you still get erections at all, it is likely not physical, but psychological.

See your urologist or internist at this point.

I would like to emphasis that impotence is a serious problem, regardless of the cause. And requires expert examination, asap.
