What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, which was previously referred to as “impotence”, is a physical condition, when a man can’t achieve erection or maintain it. And although any male on the Earth sometimes experiences some kind of impotence (problems with erection happen to everyone at least once in a lifetime and are caused by certain worries, stress or too much alcohol consumed), but if the problem is no longer temporary, then it means that you need some erectile dysfunction treatment.

ED Degrees

There are different degrees of erectile dysfunction:

• Mild ED – ability to achieve and maintain successful erection 7 to 8 times out of 10 attempts

• Moderate ED – ability to have successful erection 4 to 6 times out of 10 tries

• Severe ED – ability to achieve erection less than 3 times out of 10 attempts.
ED Degrees (levels)
Previously this problem was not considered that common, but the reason for this is that not many men wanted to talk about this problem and share it with anybody. Now, as more and more treatments and medications that help people live with erectile dysfunction appear, men are not anymore scared to talk about it, and there are some detailed statistics available to study and understand the causes and tendencies of erectile dysfunction.
There is one out of 10 men who has erectile dysfunction for sure in the world.
There are alone 30 million of men having erectile dysfunction in the United States.
Half of the men suffering diabetes also suffer from erectile dysfunction. The first erectile dysfunction problems for men with diabetes appear within the first 10 years after diagnosis.
With age the possibility of getting erectile dysfunction increases:
• At the age of 40 – 39%
• 65 or older – 65%.
Men, abusing alcohol, drugs and cigarettes are more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction. For instance, those men, who smoke more than one pack of cigarettes per day, have 50% higher chances of getting ED, than men of the same age who do not smoke.
Some urologists say that the number of men looking for erectile dysfunction treatment will double in the nearest few years.


Erectile dysfunction has sure and concrete symptoms:

The first and major symptom is when you are unable to get an erection, when you are in a sexual situation and want to have sex, or when masturbating. The second symptom of ED is when you are unable to maintain your erection hard enough and long enough to complete the sexual intercourse. And although similar problems happen to all men from time to time, it can become serious, when such problems continue and become often. More About ED Symptoms
