ED affects 15 to 30 million American men. ED stands for erectile dysfunction which is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse for men. In most cases, ED has a physical cause. Although it can also be caused by psychological problems. The good news is, and you probably hear it on media all the time, ED is treatable at all ages. The common treatments include psychotherapy, drug therapy, vacuum devices, and surgery.
If you or your spouse seems to be suffering from ED, make an appointment to talk to your primary physician. He or she will refer you to a specialist. There’s no need to feel embarrassed since it’s a much more common problem than you think. Just by looking at the statistics, you would know someone you know probably has it.
