Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common type of sexual dysfunction in men. It involves the inability to keep or get an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse. Occasionally, it is referred to as impotence. Most men experience erectile dysfunction when they are undergoing stressful periods. However, chronic erectile dysfunction is a sign of an underlying problem that needs urgent medical attention.
Male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Erectile dysfunction can result from a problem with any of these. Likewise, stress and mental health concerns can cause or worsen erectile dysfunction.
ED is distinct from other conditions that interfere with the male sexual intercourse. These conditions that hinder sexual performance include lack of sexual desire and problems with orgasm and ejaculation. Erectile dysfunction is known to affect more than 50 percent of all men above 40 years.
