Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED, earlier known as impotence) is the inability to achieve and maintain an erection that is adequate for intercourse that is mutually satisfying to the man and his partner.
The inability to achieve the required erection one or two times is actually quite normal. It’s when the failure is persistent and recurrent that it becomes a cause to be looked into. This physical condition also causes marked distress or interpersonal difficulty. The most common behavioral problem related to ED is Alcoholism and Smoking. They are also a key cause of erectile dysfunction in many healthy young adults.
One of the most recently emerging ED cause is psychogenic impotence, it is diagnosed when the patient is young, and is able to achieve morning and nocturnal erections, as well as erection with masturbation. In this case, the ED may be partner-specific or have a sudden onset.
ED can be lifelong or recently acquired and may be generalized or restricted to a particular situation or situations.
While the exact prevalence of the disorder is uncertain, experts say there is an incidence of about 20% in young adults and 50% in people over the age of 60.
