Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction - the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual activities - is common and can have multiple causes.

Although the risk increases with age, it can happen at any time and it is not an inevitable consequence of ageing. In other words, the healthier a man is, the better his sexual function.

What causes erectile dysfunction?

The causes can be physical or psychological, and are usually a combination of factor, such as:

  • stress and anxiety
  • diabetes
  • cardiovascular disease
  • damage to nerves or arteries due to pelvic surgery
  • neurological disease
  • relationship problems
  • alcohol and drug use
  • smoking

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

Treatment ranges from simple measures such as changes in lifestyle and medication to drug treatments or surgery. It is important to talk to a specialist, who can work with you to find the most suitable treatment. The choice generally depends on the underlying cause, which can be assessed through consultation, examination and specific investigations. These examinations  include blood tests, ultrasound and occasionally X-rays.
