ED is common shorthand for Erectile Dysfunction. Erectile Dysfunction is a man’s inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse. ED is also commonly referred to as “impotence”.
Erectile Dysfunction can affect men of any age but is more common amongst men above the age of 40. In fact, nearly 50% of sexually active men between 40-70 will experience some varying degree of ED. This could include sporadic episodes of less rigid erections or a complete failure to achieve an erection.
How do I know if I have Erectile Dysfunction?
ED can generally be self-diagnosed when a patient is unable to come to a finish or is completely unable to participate in intercourse. Signs you may have ED include:
- Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection
- Weak and/or less rigid sexual erections
- Fewer and/or weaker morning erections
- Rapid climax/ejaculation with or without an incomplete erection
For most men, ED is a physical symptom that can be increased by cardiovascular disease, obesity or other conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. For other patients, ED may be brought on psychological issues or a combination of factors.
ED is more common as men age due to a natural and gradual loss of testosterone as well as the weakening of the blood vessels in the penis. The occurrence of ED increases 39% of men at age 40 and to 67% of men at age 70
