In brief: Both
Erectile dysfunction can be caused by both physical and/or psychological conditions.
It is important to undergo routine testing to evaluate for a physical condition that can be treated, if identified. A good history should also be taken to identify psychological stressors that can cause erection problems. Usually, the treatment of either of these factors will improve the condition.
