Organic impotence. This originates from some structural and anatomical defects in the sexual organs or in the sexual nerve centers. The main causes are as follows:
Severe attack of mumps in children,
If testicles were removed (castration) by some reason. (e.g. a bad injury) then there will be complete impotence.
Injury in the lower part of the spinal column near the lumbar region.
Hydroceles, scrotal hernia and elephantiasis make the surrounding parts of the penis hypertrophied and the penis enveloped by such huge mass tissues is not able to penetrate into the vagina.
Unnatural sexual gratification, prolonged involuntary seminal emission causing diminution in the size of the penis and testicles.
Functional Impotence. If seminal emission occurs too early before erection is complete or if the whole act is finished too soon, the man may be suffering from functional impotence. Factors causing functional impotence are the following:
Excessive sexual indulgence
Syphilis and gonorrhoea
