General & Family Physician Dr. W. Scott Keigwin's  Response
doctors go back and forth with the percentages. In younger men, psychological causes are more likely then physical ones. I have seen plenty of physical problems as a cause in my practice. New onset diabetes, low testosterone, and high blood pressure are some of the causes I've seen. I'd recommend getting a full check up first and if everything is fine, addressing the emotional causes
