Management of Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile dysfunction (ED) describes the inability to achieve and or maintain an erect penis adequate for sexual function. Even though not always talked about, it is the most common sexual problems for men and the number of men suffering from ED increases with age. Approximately 25 million American men suffer from ED. Extent of physical and psychological affect vary from person to person. ED can be quite un-nerving and embarrassing for some but not all men are equally distressed by the problem.
