Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to maintain an erection firm enough for satisfying sexual activity. While occasionally having difficulty maintaining an erection can be normal, if it happens frequently and consistently disrupts your sex life, you may need to speak with your physician, who might formally diagnose you with ED.

It is often not talked about, but erectile dysfunction (ED) can be a very embarrassing performance issue. In fact, ED affects about 30 million men in the United States. And although the risk of erectile dysfunction does increase with age, it’s still possible for young men to experience ED.

So, what exactly does occur? When a male becomes excited sexually, the muscles in his penis relax and blood flow to his penis increases. Blood fills the corpora cavernosa, the two chambers of spongy tissue that run along the length of the penis. Erectile dysfunction occurs when there’s a problem with this process. The causes can be physical or mental, and can include alcohol use, anxiety, blocked blood vessels, depression, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, illicit drug use, metabolic syndrome, multiple sclerosis, some medications, such as blood pressure medications, obesity, Parkinson’s disease, relationship issues, scar tissue inside the penis, sleep disorders, smoking, and stress. 

Risk factors for erectile dysfunction includes 

  • Age 
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Depression
  • Other risk factors, such as being physically inactive, having metabolic syndrome, smoking, having high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, or low testosterone
