Can High Blood Pressure Cause Erectile Dysfunction?

Written by Dianna Palimere, PhD, LCSW . Posted in Men's Health.

Can High Blood Pressure Cause Erectile Dysfunction?The short answer is yes. In fact, a study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society reported that approximately 49% of men in the age category of 40-79, with high blood pressure, had erectile dysfunction (ED). To fully explain how this happens, I'm going to pretend that not all of my readers remember the basics of penile anatomy and function that they may have learned during health class in high school...if they were lucky enough to have that. After explaining the basic mechanics of how a penis functions, I can then explain why having your blood pressure in a healthy range is so important for sexual health.
