Overall, studies conducted worldwide have reported the prevalence of sexual disorders in the range of 10-25% among men and 25-64% among women
Psychogenic ED may be attributed to stress in relationship, performance anxiety, decreased self-esteem, stress or shame arising due to chronic or infective dermatological diseases, such as genital vitiligo and herpes, or overt psychological disorders such as depression and anxiety.
