What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction or ED is when a male has difficulty developing an erection or keeping an erection. Erectile dysfunction occurs when there is not enough blood flow to the penis. Erectile dysfunction can occur at any age, but is more likely to occur at an older age.

Treatments for erectile dysfunction include treating underlying conditions, taking medication, or using injections. Common drug classes used to treat erectile dysfunction are PDE5 inhibitors and prostaglandin E1 agonists.
