Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is a man’s inability to attain or maintain an erection suitable for vaginal penetration and /or satisfactory sex for both partners.

Research shows that erectile dysfunction becomes more common as men get older and sexual function sharply decreases after age 50. 1 in every 2 middle age men will develop erectile dysfunction. It’s also associated with some medical conditions, like heart disease and diabetes. In fact, an estimated 50% of diabetic men have some degree of ED.

Having erection trouble from time to time isn't necessarily a cause for concern. If erectile dysfunction is an ongoing issue, however, it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems. Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment and a risk factor for heart disease.
