Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition that affects erections in men. Men with ED are unable to get or sustain an erection for satisfying sexual intercourse.
It’s not uncommon for men to have problems with erections every once in a while. However, with ED, the inability to get an erection for sex is a recurring problem that affects emotional and mental well-being.
ED is common in older men, but not a normal part of the aging process. At the Endurance Clinic, Dr. Turner offers many effective treatments to help men struggling with ED.
When you have ED it’s important to find the underlying cause. ED may occur from a physical vascular, neurological, or emotional condition.
An erection occurs from arousal that triggers blood flow into the penis. A physical cause of ED affects sensation or the flow of blood into the penis. Health conditions like diabetes and atherosclerosis are common physical causes of ED.
Stress and depression may also cause ED. These emotional conditions may affect your arousal and desire. It may also lead to performance anxiety.
