Erectile Dysfunction Symptoms Test

Do I have Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (also known as impotence) is an inability to achieve or sustain an erection that is adequate for sexual intercourse, an inability to ejaculate, or both. Most erectile dysfunction symptoms are caused by a variety of physical or environmental factors, including the use of certain medications (e.g., anti-androgens, LH-RH agonists, antidepressants), chronic illness (e.g., diabetes is a major cause of erectile dysfunction; also hypertension), drinking too much alcohol, fatigue, poor lifestyle and nutrition choices (e.g., smoking, poor diet, lack of exercise), injuries or damage (e.g., following prostate or other surgery in the pelvic region), prostate conditions (e.g., BPH, prostatitis, prostate cancer), exposure to BPA in the environment, and poor blood flow to the penis. Up to 20 percent of erectile dysfunction symptoms are believed to be caused by stress, anxiety, or other psychological issues and according to the National Institutes of Health, approximately 5 percent of 40-year-old men and between 15 and 25 percent of men age 65 experience erectile dysfunction on a long-term basis. Failure to achieve an erection less than 20 percent of the time is not unusual; when that percentage hits about 50 percent, however, that generally means you have a challenge to face.
