Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex


Having erection trouble from time to time isn't necessarily a cause for concern. If erectile dysfunction is an ongoing issue, however, it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems.

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:

  1. You have concerns about your erections or you're experiencing other sexual problems such a premature or delayed ejaculation
  2. You have diabetes, heart disease or another known health condition that might be linked to erectile dysfunction
  3. You have other symptoms along with erectile dysfunction
