    Caleb..... I can't state for a medical fact that depression causes erectile disfunction, but I have had this happen to me as well.

    Call it depression or stress (or both), but a month before I finished grad school and started my new job, I could not get and hold an erection to save my life. I think alot of it had to do that I was thinking and worrying about alot of things that was going on with life. SO.. it only made sense that the physiological desire to have an erection would be nill. Psychologicaly I wanted to have an erection. The feeling of "getting off" was something that I relied on as a comforting factor..... something that I knew was a constat, something that I knew I could depend on. When the time came that that didn't work--matters got worse.

    Additionally..... I would like to throw in some observations... I don't put a whole lot of weight into the Maslov's heiarchy of needs thing, but I think there is a certatin point where, if you are familiar with the concept, you basically just go into survival mode. A depression streak that I was on had me bumped down to the lowest level.... just the need for norishment was a big challange. I couldn't look at food without feeling nautious... so anything above just eating (including an erection) was a challange.

    But on the bright side of things, I am a whole lot better. The key to recovery is knowing that you are depress, accepting the facts of live, and picking yourself up and moving on. You are a cute guy with impressive measurements! You are young, and you have a lot going for you!. SO don't be down in the dumps! Be happy! Life is too short to go around being sad.

    Have a great weekend
    -Matt

    7x5.5: I think it can, I have gone through phases (all be it not as long as a month) where, through phycological reasons such as stress I have had difficulty getting an erection. If my mind is extremely focused on something, particularly something distressing, my arousal just goes. During these times I sometimes try to get an erection just to keep it in working order, but often can only notch up a semi and then give up - this worries me, and makes the problem even worse. Usually though these phases for me are over within a few days, as I often manage to dig myself out of any depression within this time. However, if something is really bothering you, I guess it is plausable that you could have problems for a month or more.

    All I can say is that if you have not had trouble getting erections before your depression set in, you'll be fine - Just ride out the tough times, then celebreate by blowing a massive, well deserved load haha.

    Yes, depression causes erectile dysfunction. The entire affective spectrum affects sex drive.

    Most erectile dysfunction is due to psychological rather than bodily causes. If you had been having a stressful time and it was only a transient thing then I wouldn't worry at all. If it happens again don't get wound up as this will only sress you out more. A lot of people end up trying things like viagra for what is mainly a relationship/lifestyle problem. While it may give a short term boost in confidence, people could end up relying on it too much.

    Just to check, you don't have diabetes or any heart condition do you? These things can affect the flow of blood to your old man, and if you can't get erections at all they may be a culprit.

    Did you wake up with erections at all?

    Most important - have they come back?
