Erectile dysfunction is simply when a man can not get and/ or maintain an erection.
In some cases the man does not experience any erections while in other cases the erection will only last a short period of time. It can sometimes be referred to as impotence.
What's important to remember is that erectile dysfunction is a common problem. It is estimated that over 50% of men over the age of 40 suffer from erection problems. What this shows is it's a common complaint and it is certainly nothing to be embarrassed or stressed about.
Usually erectile dysfunction relates to a physical or psychological problem. Sometimes this can be traced back to a previous condition or there could be a chemical reaction due to the impact of some prescription or other drugs. Erectile dysfunction can also be caused by hormonal or circulatory problems.
A common misconception is that erectile dysfunction is part of the ageing process. It's not. It can be treated, but it is easier to deal with the earlier the treatment begins.
