Erectile dysfunction (ED)
What is erectile dysfunction? ED is when a man has problems getting or maintaining an erection long enough for sex. Some men aren’t able to get an erection at all. Others can get one, but it’s not hard enough for sex. And others get a hard erection but lose it before or during sex.
ED is a medical condition. In most cases, erections will not improve without treatment.
ED is more common than you might think. More than half of all men over 40 have some difficulty getting and maintaining an erection.
Treatment works—Ask your doctor about treatment. Most men with ED can significantly improve their erections; better erections can mean better sex.
