WHAT IS ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?

Erectile Dysfunction, commonly known as ED, occurs in men who have trouble achieving or retaining an erection. This condition affects millions of men with various degrees of severity. It is not limited by age, and it can affect men from various lifestyles. Many men let their ED go untreated because of embarrassment. They also might not think the symptoms are severe enough to contact a doctor.

ED does not necessarily affect men every time they try to perform. However, if it occurs often enough, it can affect a man’s relationships, self-confidence, and even be a symptom of a greater problem with their testosterone levels. The sooner men with ED talk to a doctor, the sooner they can receive the treatment they need to regain their health and sexual ability.
