Orlando Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is an inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient to perform satisfactory sexual intercourse. The spectrum of Erectile Dysfunction can also include premature ejaculation.
Erectile Dysfunction may result from psychological, neurological, hormonal, and vascular conditions. In addition, ED can be caused by disruption or impairment of the smooth muscle function of the penis.
There are numerous potential conditions that can put one at risk for ED. These can include:
