WHAT IS ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?
- Trouble getting or sustaining an erection.
- Lots of things can affect the ability to get an erection, including stress, drugs, alcohol and your mood.
Erectile dysfunction happens to most men occasionally, but if you’re having problems getting or keeping an erection regularly, you should speak to your GP to find out what’s going on.
Erectile dysfunction (also sometimes called impotence) can be a bit embarrassing to talk about, but it’s more common than you think. There are lots of myths and stereotypes around erectile dysfunction, but you shouldn’t worry about them. Experiencing erectile dysfunction does not make you less of a man, mean you are bad in bed, or tell you anything about your fertility – only a medical professional can do that.
