Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex
Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment and a risk factor for heart disease. If you're concerned about erectile dysfunction, talk to your doctor - even if you're embarrassed. Sometimes, treating an underlying condition is enough to reverse erectile dysfunction. In other cases, medications or other direct treatments might be needed.
When to see a doctor?
Urologist is the right specialist to be consulted:
- You have concerns about your erections or you're experiencing other sexual problems such a premature or delayed ejaculation
- You have diabetes, heart disease or another known health condition that might be linked to erectile dysfunction
- You have other symptoms along with erectile dysfunction
