Understanding Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile Dysfunction - when a man cannot achieve or maintain an erection What is erectile dysfunction? 

Erectile dysfunction which is also known as impotence, is when a man cannot achieve or maintain an erection. The penis may become partially erect but not hard enough for sexual intercourse. 

Many men suffer from erectile problems from time to time, particularly when stressed, tired or after drinking alcohol. However if erectile dysfunction is an ongoing problem then it can lead to embarrassment, relationship problems and depression. The good news is that in most cases erectile dysfunction is easily treated.

What causes erectile dysfunction?
Around 70% of cases of erectile dysfunction are caused by narrowing of the arteries in the penis, restricting blood flow and preventing hardening and swelling of the penis. The reason for this is a build up of fat, causing plaque to line the arteries. It is particularly common in men over 40 and is commonly associated with high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes. 

Other causes of erectile dysfunction include side effects of some medications, psychological causes such as depression and anxiety, and surgery or injury to the penis. Men should not feel embarrassed about visiting their doctor - with over 50% of men over 40 suffering from problems getting an erection, you will not be the first person your doctor has seen about it. Your doctor will be able to help determine the cause of your erectile dysfunction.
