In brief: ED

There is no specific test to differentiate the root cause of ed.
Clearly, stress, performance anxiety, underlying depression, etc can lead to erectile issues. Young age, lack of concurrent medical problems(htn, diabetes, heart disease), depressive symptoms may make psychologic causes more likely. Pd5 inhibitors(viagra, etc) may be used for both problems and be quite effective. Talk to your doctor.
