What is Erectile Dysfunction?

There are variety of reasons why men develop problems with erections erectile dysfunction. These can be related medical problems where blood flow and nerves are not functioning optimally. Some examples of these causes are heart health issues, mental health issues such as anxiety or depression, alcohol or smoking, some prescription medications, and certain diseases. Men with diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity may be at risk for erectile dysfunction.
