The major cause of erectile dysfunction is restricted blood flow to the penis because of narrowed blood vessels. In fact, because the vessels in the penis are very small compared to other parts of the body, problems with erectile dysfunction can be a warning sign that other vessels, such as those leading to the heart, may eventually be affected.
