Adult males finding it difficult to maintain a firm erection of the penis and which affects their ability to indulge in normal sexual intercourse are considered to suffer from erectile dysfunction. It is normal for most men to experience some difficulty in maintaining the firmness of their penis occasionally. However, if this becomes a regular occurrence and prevents satisfactory sexual performance then the condition can be diagnosed as erectile dysfunction.
What Causes ED?
ED is primarily caused by medical reasons but in some individuals, the cause can be psychological also. The key medical reasons for ED are a poor flow of blood to the male organ and some hormonal issues. Medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart-related ailments, damaged nerves and arteries, and obesity can result in ED. Persons who are habituated to alcohol consumption and tobacco products are more likely to suffer from ED. Poor physical fitness caused by lack of exercise may also result in ED in some individuals.

- Stressful conditions at work
