Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile Dysfunction - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Erectile Dysfunction (ED), or sexual impotence, is the inability to obtain and sustain an erection strong enough to perform sexual intercourse. Even after proper sexual stimulation, a man fails to erect his penile organ in this condition.

However, if achieving an erection is an ongoing problem, it can cause stress or depression, affect your self-esteem and confidence, and even contribute to relationship issues. Problems in attaining or keeping an erection can also be an indication of some underlying medical condition that needs appropriate treatment.

If you are an ED victim, speak to your doctor; do not hesitate or ignore the problem. Sometimes, simply identifying and treating the underlying condition is sufficient to reverse impotence issues. In other cases of ED, medications or direct ED treatments are required.
