If you are prescribed any medication for hypertension from a recent illness it can decrease the amount of blood flow to the caverous system to make your penis erect. It could also be caused by the lack of nitric oxide in your diet to aid your penis in maintaining a full erection.

What can be done to increase blood flow to your penis?

Get an erection: Blood flow will increase with an erection. If you have vascular or nervous system problems, the blood flow may not increase as much as it used to. When it's severe, that's called erectile dysfunction.
