Erectile Dysfunction Treatment
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a medical condition that affects a significant number of men worldwide. ED is defined as the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual activity. ED can have various causes, including physical and psychological factors. Physical causes of ED include conditions that affect blood flow to the penis, such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Other physical causes may include hormonal imbalances, nerve damage, or side effects of medications. Psychological factors that can contribute to ED include anxiety, depression, and stress. Relationship issues, performance anxiety, and a history of trauma can also contribute to ED.
