What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition in which a man is unable to achieve or maintain an erection during sexual activity. The inability to achieve or maintain an erection can happen at any age, but it is more common as men get older. Erections occur when blood flow to the penis is increased and trapped in the chambers of the penis, causing it to expand and harden. ED can be caused by a variety of factors, including physical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or hormonal imbalances; psychological conditions such as stress, anxiety, or depression; or certain medications. It's important to consult a healthcare provider to determine the underlying cause of ED and to discuss the best treatment options for you.
