RE: Relationship of high blood pressure to erectile dysfunction

The relationship is two-pronged - drugs to treat high cholesterol and high blood pressure can decrease libido, and the vein and blood vessel damage caused by the conditions my interfere with blood flow to the penis. In addition, men with these conditions tend to be generally unhealthy, and possibly overweight, which can also affect sexual performance. It's another good reason to keep yourself fit.

RE: Relationship of high blood pressure to erectile dysfunction

Nobody knows exactly how high blood pressure causes erectile dysfunction and impotence. One leading theory is that the excess pressure in the blood vessels actually causes damage to small arteries in the penis. Normally, these arteries dilate in response to sexual stimulation, allowing more blood to flow into the spongy tissue of the penis to produce an erection. It is thought that excessive pressure on these arteries may cause tiny tears, which the body then repairs. In response to these tears, the healed arteries become thicker, allowing them to better resist further damage. These thicker arteries, though, aren’t able to respond as fast, or as completely, to demands for extra blood, so they become a sort of dam in the flow of blood to the erectile tissues of the penis.
