80% of erectile dysfunction issues are physical. However, we know that our sexual health is closely related to our mental health. Oakwood Health Network understands this and works closely with professional psychologists who help men obtain better mental health and greater well-being.
Many men don’t connect their mental health with the physical or sexual issues they may be experiencing. However, medical researchers are learning more about the connection between mental health and ED and how mental health issues can often make ED symptoms worse.
These mental health issues include:
Medical research shows that men who are experiencing ED face higher rates of depression — up to 192% — so if a man’s mental health wasn’t a concern before he began experiencing ED, it can become a serious issue after.
When a man allows himself to be honest about what he is feeling, the effects on his mental and physical health can be very positive. Addressing past traumas or current feelings of anxiety or depression with a professional psychologist can be an effective treatment that goes hand-in-hand with other reliable ED treatment methods. A man mustn’t hide or distort what he’s feeling. It’s not embarrassing to admit and discuss the truth, and the benefits to man’s physical and mental health can be significant.
