Erectile Dysfunction (E.D.)


Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection that lasts sufficiently for satisfactory sexual activity. It can affect men of all ages and can be linked with underlying conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. It can lead to depression and cause relationship difficulties. Other factors which can lead to erectile dysfunction are smoking, alcohol, sedentary lifestyle and obesity.

Don't suffer in silence, help is available.
