Why does having abnormal blood pressure lead to impotence?

Many reasons.: The drugs used: diuretics and beta blockers, etc. But remember, if you have other co-morbid conditions such as cholesterol issues, or diabetes, you may have vascular disease as well. Also, obesity in men converts testosterone to 17-b-estradiol, an estrogen. This is not good for libido. Remember, obesity can lead to all the above, and treatment can worsen it.

Penis is unusually warm when erect. Having Erectile dysfunction symptoms. Could this be a caused by high blood pressure?

But erectile dysfunction likely caused by other factors, possibly psychologic.
