Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction, or ED, can be a total inability to achieve erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections. ED can occur at any age but is more common in older men, who often have additional health problems or who may be taking medications that interfere with normal erectile function.
