Men after a divorce engage in erratic sexual relations and have sex with anyone. It sounds defiant, but it’s just a stereotype, in fact, many of them may encounter a sudden erection disorder. This is not uncommon for recently divorced men, although it would seem that sexual desire in relation to a new sexual partner should be higher. Why can this happen and how to deal with the problem?

Common Causes of Possible Disorders after Tearing Marriage Ties

It happens that after the end of the marriage, ex-husbands experience problems with sexual desire due to turmoil and worries. Then the situation normalizes. There are several factors that can cause serious ED against the background of this unpleasant event.

  1. Stress. A key cause of problems with getting the penis hard in bed is stress, both psycho-emotional and physical. It leads to depletion of the body, as well as an increase in blood pressure, which adversely affects potency.
  2. Depression. This psychological disorder is especially characteristic of men who were against parting, were forced to take this step because of their wives’ unfaithfulness, or suffer from the inability to see their children every day. Negative depressive thoughts absorb consciousness, respectively, a man is no longer up to sex.
  3. Anxiety performance. If a man is already used to one regular partner, he may develop a fear of not being able to get an erection with a new woman. constant getting oneself in a state and inability to relax leads to erectile dysfunction at the most intimate moment.
  4. Change in habits. If a couple rarely has sex, a man can start watching pornographic videos and masturbating to satisfy his sex drive. This leads to some change in the sensitivity of the penis, the mechanisms of triggering an erection and maintaining it during intercourse.

If divorce occurs in advancing age, for example, after reaching the age of fifty, erectile dysfunction may develop or worsen due to age-related deterioration in a patient’s general health. The list of the most common organic causes of male sexual weakness includes diabetes, cardiovascular disease, decreased levels of testosterone (the “king” of male hormones), neurological disorders, etc.
