Erectile dysfunction

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is the failure to get or maintain an erection to be able to have a sexual relationship.

Having erection problems from time to time is not necessarily a reason to worry. If erectile dysfunction is a continuous problem, however, it can cause stress, affect self-confidence and contribute to problems in relationships. The problems of getting or maintaining an erection can also be a sign of an undiagnosed disease that needs treatment and a risk factor for heart disease.

If you are worried about erectile dysfunction, talk to a doctor, even if you are embarrassed. Sometimes, the treatment of an undiagnosed disease is enough to reverse erectile dysfunction. In other cases, medications or other direct treatments may be needed.
