Erectile Dysfunction Q & A
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (ED), sometimes referred to as impotence, is the inability to get or maintain an erection long enough to have sexual intercourse. ED can be a sensitive subject, and it can cause embarrassment, but the condition is relatively common and can strike at any age. In fact, most men experience at least temporary erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives.
What causes erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is linked to problems with your blood vessels, nerves, brain, and hormones because all of these systems contribute to sexual arousal. Usually, erectile dysfunction is provoked by an underlying health condition that you may not even know you have.
Some of the most common causes of ED include:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Multiple sclerosis
- Poor circulation
- Parkinson’s disease
- High cholesterol
In addition to physical causes, your inability to get an erection may be due to a medication you’re taking, inadequate nutrition, or tobacco and alcohol use.
