Patients' Perspectives

Erectile dysfunction is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be a total inability to achieve erection, an inconsistent ability or a tendency to sustain only brief erections. 

In older men, ED usually has a physical cause, such as disease, injury, or side effects of drugs. Any disorder that causes injury to the nerves or impairs blood flow in the penis has the potential to cause ED.

ED is treatable at any age. More men have been seeking help and returning to normal sexual activity because of improved, successful treatments for erectile dysfunction.
