Erectile dysfunction is a condition that can happen to any man. It is the consistent inability to get or maintain an erection. Inability to do so is considered abnormal and different to other problems, like lack of sexual desire and issues with ejaculation or orgasm. Because erectile dysfunction can cause emotional and relationship problems, many men are afraid to seek help, as it leads to diminished self-esteem. However, this condition is mostly treatable.
Who Has Erectile Dysfunction?
In the USA, about 5% of men who are 40, and between 15 and 25% of men who are 65 are experiencing this condition on a long-term basis. For many men, drinking too much alcohol or being extremely tired can affect their ability to get erections from time to time. You shouldn’t worry if it doesn’t happen regularly.
Erectile dysfunction has several possible causes, and the majority of them are treatable. Men should not accept that erectile dysfunction is an inevitable consequence of aging; in fact, with proper diet and exercise, plus management of other diseases and conditions, erectile dysfunction should be a condition that can be avoided.
