What Is Erectile Dysfunction?
It’s More Common Than You Think
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to have or maintain an erection during sexual activity. Also known as impotenece, it occurs when the penile erection mechanisms are unable to create and sustain the pressure needed for a fully hard erection. Though sexual stimulation is usually enough to get things going, men with Erectile Dysfunction have trouble staying hard through climax. Contributing factors can include aging, high blood pressure, vascular disease, disease, stress, anxiety, and more. Prescription drugs known as PDE5 inhibitors have been clinically proven to be effective treatments for ED allowing men to get and maintain robust erections.
