What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, also known as ED or impotence, is the inability to attain or maintain an erection of the penis that is adequate for the sexual satisfaction of both partners. It can be devastating to the self-esteem of a man and his partner.

As many as 30 million American men are afflicted on a continuing basis, and transient episodes affect nearly all adult males. Nearly all men who seek treatment find some measure of relief.

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

As recently as 2 decades ago, doctors tended to blame erectile dysfunction on psychological problems or, with older men, on the normal aging process. Today, the pendulum of medical opinion has swung away from both notions.

While arousal takes longer as man ages, chronic erectile dysfunction warrants medical attention. Moreover, the difficulty is often not psychological in origin. Today, urologists believe that physical factors underlie the majority of cases of persistent erectile dysfunction in men over the age of 50.
