Erectile Dysfunction affects as many as 30 million men. Most men have problems with erections from time to time. In some men, these problems are regular and more severe. ED, or erectile dysfunction, is when it is hard to get or keep an erection that’s firm enough for sex.
WHAT CAUSES Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
While ED becomes more common as men age, growing old is not the cause of the problem. ED can be an early sign of a more serious health problem. Finding and treating the cause(s) of your ED can improve your overall health and well-being.
Erectile Dysfunction can result from health or emotional problems, or from both combined. Reduced blood flow or harm to nerves in the penis can result in erection problems. These can be caused by heart disease, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, surgery, injuries and even smoking. Some medicine, as well as alcohol or other drugs may also cause erection problems. Emotional (depression, stress or worry) or relationship problems can cause or worsen ED.
