Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get and keep an erection for sexual activity. While this can be a taboo topic for men to talk about, it’s actually really common. Cleveland Clinic reports that approximately 1 in 10 adult males will deal with ED on a long-term basis.
There can be a single reason or combination of reasons behind a person’s impotence. The good news is there are various treatments and lifestyle adjustments that can be made to solve the problem.
Signs and Symptoms
When a person experiences erectile dysfunction, it means they are having trouble getting and/or keeping an erection while engaging in sexual activity. Someone with erectile dysfunction may also have lower sexual desire compared to what their normal drive is.
It’s possible for someone to have ED symptoms for both a short and long period of time or even having it occur in only certain situations. The amount of time a person lives with ED will ultimately depend on the cause. It’s important for men to understand the cause of this problem because it can sometimes be a symptom of underlying health conditions.
