Erectile dysfunction, sometimes called ED or impotence, affects around one in every five men; this figure increases significantly with age.
Most men will find they are unable to get or maintain an erection occasionally, perhaps because of tiredness, stress or too much alcohol; this is quite normal.
ED is only diagnosed when the problem is persistent and recurrent. Unfortunately, it is very easy for a “one-off” incident to turn into a persistent problem, through fear that the difficulty will recur. This is because, for many men, a properly functioning penis is key to their sense of manhood; thus the stakes are high, and anxiety is known to have a considerable effect on a man’s ability to become sexually aroused.
