Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is defined as the “inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex.” According to the Mayo Clinic, over 50% of men over the age of 40 experience symptoms of ED. Just hearing the words “erectile dysfunction” may provoke anxiety, but having occasional trouble getting an erection shouldn’t be cause for alarm. However, if problems persist, it may be time to reach out for help.
Erectile dysfunction (ED, for short) is considered a “very common” condition by Mayo Clinic, affecting over 50% of all men over the age of 40. The condition itself is defined as “the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex,” a not-uncommon experience for men of any age.
