What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the difficulty or inability to maintain a firm erection suitable for the completion of sexual intercourse. Trouble getting and maintaining an erection as well as a reduced sexual desire can be considered symptoms of ED. This is the most common sex problem reported by men to their doctor. It may cause relationship problems, stress, confidence issues, and embarrassment. It is normal to have trouble from time to time, but if it becomes a recurring issue, it should be addressed and treated.

Some common causes for ED include:

  • Aging
  • Smoking
  • Excessive substance abuse
  • Strokes

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • High cholesterol
