Clinical Information
  • A disorder characterized by the persistent or recurrent inability to achieve or to maintain an erection during sexual activity.
  • An inability to have an erection of the penis adequate for sexual intercourse.
  • Erectile dysfunction (ed) is when a man has trouble getting or keeping an erection. Ed becomes more common as you get older. But male sexual dysfunction is not a natural part of aging. Some people have trouble speaking with their doctors about sex. But if you have ed, you should tell your doctor. Ed can be a sign of health problems. It may mean your blood vessels are clogged. It may mean you have nerve damage from diabetes. If you don't see your doctor, these problems will go untreated. Your doctor can offer several new treatments for ed. For many men, the answer is as simple as taking a pill. Getting more exercise, losing weight or stopping smoking may also help.
  • Inability to perform sexual intercourse.
  • The inability in the male to have a penile erection due to psychological or organ dysfunction.
