About 1 in 2 men over 40 have difficulty getting a proper erection. There are a number of causes and most cases of "Erectile Dysfunction" can be treated. There are also various other options which may include something like "Viagra". Please make a routine appointment with a GP as we can often help.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) means that you cannot get a proper erection. Most cases are due to narrowing of the arteries that take blood to the penis. This is due to a build-up of fatty deposits (atheroma) in these arteries in the same way that heart arteries are affected in people with heart disease. ED is usually treatable, most commonly by a tablet taken before sex.
Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is the inability to get and maintain an erection that is sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse. ED is a very common condition, particularly in older men. It is estimated that half of all men between the ages of 40 and 70 will have it to some degree.
