Medications- Pills or Injections
Erectile dysfunction (ED), which is also known as impotence, is the inability to attain or maintain a penile erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse. This disorder affects one in 10 men in the United States. Impotence is an obviously sensitive topic but it can now be treated effectively in most cases.
The causes of impotence include but are not limited to the following: Nerve disorders and injuries, blood supply abnormalities, hormone disorders, medications and psychological conditions. Aging also causes changes in sexual function with less frequent and less firm erections; aging also increases the chances for having other causes of impotence. However, age in and of itself should not cause erectile dysfunction. Getting older should not prohibit one from an active sex life!
