Erectile Dysfunction or Impotence

– inability to be intimate with a partner.


It consists in deficiency of erection that makes sexual intercourse impossible. It could be complete absence of erection, its partial deficiency or sudden loss of erection during intercourse before achieving climax. 

This condition is quite frequent

and according to large studies statistically the incidence of ED corresponds the decade of life (for example for man in their 40s the incidence of ED is 40%, 60s – 60% etc). 

There are a lot of known causes of Impotence

but the leading cause of ED by far in USA is atherosclerosis or vascular disease. Psychogenic reasons or anxiety are substantial too. Diabetes Mellitus causes irreversible changes in penile tissue that are responsible for most resilient variant of erectile dysfunction
