•    Persistently and gradually develops: If this is the case then a physical cause is behind this dysfunction because that is what usually happens with chronic impotence.
•    Happens abruptly: There is an underlying physical factor in this case but the primary cause is a psychological issue especially in the case when you can get an erection for masturbating and early morning erections also occur.
