Erectile dysfunction describes the situation where a man cannot achieve an erection adequate for sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction can affect men of all ages.
It is not a disease but rather a symptom of another problem, which is usually physical but can also be psychological, or a mix of the two.
There are some common causes for erectile dysfunction that can be addressed with lifestyle changes. Other causes can be treated with medications or injections.
Erectile dysfunction often develops slowly over a period of months or years with a gradual loss of function.
Blood flow issues associated with diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, cigarette smoking, obesity and heart disease are often involved.
A man’s sex drive can also be affected by stress at work, in a relationship or around financial issues, often leading to anxiety or depression.
Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration. It can cause performance anxiety, which then exacerbates the issue.
