What is erectile dysfunction?
Men most frequently disclose erectile dysfunction, or ED, to their doctor when they have sex-related issues. Up to 30 million men may be impacted by it.
Trouble achieving or maintaining a firm enough erection for intercourse is referred to as ED.
Even though it’s common for men to experience occasional erection issues, ED that progresses or occurs frequently during sexual activity is abnormal and has to be treated.
ED can occur:
most frequently when nerves are damaged or penis blood flow is restricted
due to emotional or stressful factors
as a precursor to a more serious condition, such as atherosclerosis (hardening or clogged arteries), heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes-related high blood sugar
Your general health and the treatment of your ED will benefit from determining the cause(s) of the condition. Generally speaking, whatever is good for your heart is also good for your sex health.
