It's common for men experience a weak erection at some point in their lives. For some, the problem is only occasional, while for others it is chronic or recurring. There are a variety of factors that can cause arteries and veins to constrict and reduce blood flow.

Common causes are smoking, poor diet, penile injury, some medications, drug or alcohol abuse, or psychological factors. A weak erection can also lead to premature ejaculation. When a man experiences a weak erection, he may contract the muscles around his genitals in order to aid the erection. By doing so, he subjects the prostate gland to added pressure and stress. This added load on the prostate can mimic orgasmic contractions and pre-cum will lubricate the urethra, leading to premature ejaculation.
 
When we are under stress or have an infection, cortisol raises our blood pressure and blood sugar. These changes help us survive short periods of stress, but they eventually hurt us if they continue for years.

It is important not to ignore occasional weak erection if the frequency has increased. It's a sign for a more severe erectile dysfunctions to be developed.

Weak erections really do lead to bigger problems. I know a main problem might be impotence and that is worse because you suffer from weak erection constantly and are never really able to have sex because your erection won't appear.
