Erectile dysfunction (obsolete – impotence) – the inability of a man to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse and sexual activity. At the same time, erectile dysfunction is a condition in which these problems exist for at least three months. From the term: “impotence” – recently began to be abandoned, since this diagnosis implies an extreme degree of violation of sexual function, and the unlikely success of conservative treatment.
Causes of impotence:
Based on the causes and mechanisms of development, ED is divided into several types:

The doctor will most likely prescribe general treatment methods, if he does not find other health problems. However, you can always consult with him about the use of pharmaceuticals
