Because erection is primarily a merit of the correct operation of the blood vessels that provide the blood supply of the penis, one of the main causes of erectile dysfunction is disruption of the cardiovascular system.

Causes of vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis, are also poor diet, Smoking, diseases of the endocrine system. What is the mechanism of disappearance of erection the atherosclerosis?
The reason is that an erection is due to active blood flow to the penis. As a result, all existing in this cavity quickly fills with blood, it greatly increases in size.
