What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is the inability for a man to develop and maintain an erection that is firm enough for sex. Having trouble gaining an erection from time to time isn’t necessarily something that is a cause for concern. However, if erectile dysfunction is an ongoing issue, it can cause stress and begin to affect the self-confidence of the man experiencing it and begin to contribute to relationship problems.
Problems developing and maintaining an erection can also be an early warning sign of an underlying health condition that requires treatment and could potentially be a risk factor for heart disease. If you are concerned about erectile dysfunction, it is time to talk to your doctor. There are cases where treating the underlying condition is enough to be able to reverse erectile dysfunction. In other cases, medications or alternative treatments may be recommended or needed.
