Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or maintain a sufficient erection for sexual activity.
Erectile Dysfunction Causes
ED in Older Men
- Blocked blood flow to the penis due to atherosclerosis or diabetes
- Venous leakage: faulty vein, forcing blood to drain too quickly from the penis
- Hormonal imbalances
- Certain operations
- Medication side effect interfering with necessary nerve signals (stimulants, sedatives, diuretics, antihistamines, and drugs to treat high blood pressure, cancer, or depression.)
