Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) consists of the impossibility of achieving an erection sufficient for penetration, or if it is achieved, it is not maintained with sufficient rigidity to achieve satisfactory sexual intercourse.

Usually, this disorder has a constant and progressive development, with a minimum duration of about 3 months. It affects up to 50% of patients between 40 and 70 years old (variable data according to different studies). Its frequency clearly increases with age, but there are cases and types that can be observed in younger people.
