Elev8te Wave Therapy – Depression and ED, the Vicious Cycle

Men who want to be at their peak performance health-wise often include an active sex life as one of their indicators of good health.

Depression and erectile dysfunction are two common conditions that are linked in a vicious cycle – and they are not often openly discussed.

Both men and women with depression also report problems with their sex-life. And the reality is that problems with sexual performance can actually cause of increase symptoms of depression.

So what can you do if you’re stuck in the depression / ED cycle? To restore your peak performance health, we’re going to look at the links between depression and ED in two ways.

Let’s Talk Depression and Erectile Dysfunction

Depression can be a cause of erectile dysfunction. Why? Because erections don’t start in your penis, they start in your brain. That’s right. Sexual desire starts in the brain, which then transmits the signals to your body that produce an erection.

If depression is interfering with those signals, you may lose the natural ability to produce and maintain an erection. Even worse. Some anti depression medication has been shown to cause or worsen symptoms of ED.

This means it’s very important to be upfront with your doctor about both of your conditions. Talk to your doctor openly and honestly about your symptoms so they can determine if depression, the medication, or some other physical condition is causing your ED.

Remember: if you are taking medication for depression, never go off your medication without first discussing it with your doctor.

Here are some warning signs that there may be a link between depression and ED:

  • Sex loses appeal and no longer feels pleasurable.
  • You experience erectile dysfunction after a stressful trauma like work stress, losing your job, the death of a friend or family member.
  • Your experience of ED comes with strong feelings of anxiety, frustration, and stress.
  • You lose confidence and feel more negative about yourself because of ED.

Flip the Picture: Erectile Dysfunction and Depression

While depression can cause ED, the reverse is also true. Men experiencing erectile dysfunction can also slip into depression, or experience increased feelings of negativity, self-doubt, and lack of confidence.

It’s a chicken and egg thing. Difficult to know which comes first. Just like before, though, being open and honest about your problems – with your doctor, your partner, and even visiting a therapist – can help you move forward.

If you have Peyronie’s Disease (PD), the problem is more likely to be physical. PD is a curvature of the penis, often caused by scar tissue due to strain or injury. It can lead to painful erections, a lack of sexual enjoyment, and erectile dysfunction. Having PD may trigger depression or feelings of self-doubt.
