Erectile dysfunction (ED), sometimes referred to as impotence, is the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse. There are many possible causes of ED, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, increased age and stress.
Occasional ED is likely not serious, as many men experience problems with erections at some point in their lives. Frequent ED, however, may be a sign of health issues that need to be addressed by a medical professional.
When to Contact a Healthcare Professional
According to Maria Evans, our nurse practitioner, a man should seek treatment for ED for the following reasons:
-An inability to get or keep an erection 25 percent of the time or more
-Lowered self-esteem due to ED issues
-Issues with any medications
-No foreseeable improvements
Men should also seek treatment for ED if it causes anxiety or damages their emotional or sexual relationships. If ED does not improve, it could be an early warning sign of a more serious condition, such as coronary artery disease or hypertension.
