A good erectile function depends on a number of factors including age, overall health, hormone levels, nerves, blood flow, mental status, and emotions. When any of these factors are affected, a weak erection occurs.

The likelihood of a weak erection, known medically as Erectile dysfunction does increase with age, however, age is not the only cause of weak erection. Certain factors and conditions can also cause erectile dysfunction. These include:

Emotional Distress

Intimacy needs the mind and body working together. Erectile function can be affected by stress such as problems at work, relationship difficulties or financial worries. Psychiatric conditions, and feeling depressed or performance anxiety can also result in erectile dysfunction.Image credit: healthline.com

Medical Conditions

Erectile dysfunction is often associated with conditions that affect blood flow in the genital, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, and Peyronie's disease.

Side Effect Of Certain Medications

A number of medications, both prescription and otherwise, used to treat high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression and psychiatric disorders, and prostate disease, may cause or worsen the symptoms of erectile dysfunction.

Lifestyle Choices

Lifestyle and nutrition have been recognized as central factors influencing both vascular nitric oxide (NO) production, testosterone levels, and erectile function. Smoking, lack of physical activity, wrong diets, overweight or obesity, metabolic syndrome, and excessive alcohol consumption, are all strongly associated with a reduced availability of nitric oxide (NO), which is the driving force of the blood genital flow.

Physical Injury

Injuries may result in erectile dysfunction (ED). For example, spinal cord injuries may damage the nerves that trigger erectile function. When these nerves no longer work, ED occurs. Bicycling for long periods of time can also reduce blood flow, resulting in ED. Pain medications given to men with injuries may also result in ED.
