Sexual dysfunction can have many causes. Physically, illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, bad heart health, neurological disorders, or even hormonal imbalances can affect sexual performance. In addition to this, psychological causes like stress, anxiety, depression, sexual trauma, self-esteem issues, and things like unhappy relationships can prevent you from leading a good sexual life.
