By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 11/05/2019

The main substance in tobacco, nicotine, negatively affects all blood vessels in the body. If the blood vessels in the penis are affected, the blood flow here will not be adequate and consequently problems will arise in initiating or maintaining an erection.

In addition, the possibility of erection problems associated with smoking increases with age and the number of cigarettes smoked.
