Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the “medicalised” term for what was more commonly known as impotence in past years.

It is a Sexual problem in which men find it difficult to achieve or sustain an erection in order to have sex.

It is an extremely common problem and can affect both young and older men.

Erectile Dysfunction can have a deeply psychological impact for the sufferer often leading to feelings of inadequacy and the production of very low self-esteem.

What can cause Erectile Dysfunction?

The causes of Erectile Dysfunction are known to include both physical and psychological problems.

Physical causes can include such problems as diabetes, high blood pressure due to stress at home or work, heart disease, alcohol abuse or other serious illnesses such as cancer.

Psychological causes can include things such as Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Fears and Phobias, previous negative sexual experiences or even underlying issues within your relationship.

Can Erectile Dysfunction be treated?

For lots of Men, Erectile Dysfunction issues can simply disappear over time, but if left “untreated” the problem can become something more deeply “embedded”.

It is important to rule out any potential PHYSIOLOGICAL causes and in the first instance you should consider seeking the advice of your GP who should be able to determine if it is due to a medical problem, in which case it can usually be treated with the appropriate drug.
