Erectile Dysfunction

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED, "male impotence ") is a sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance. An erection occurs as a hydraulic effect due to blood entering and being retained in sponge-like bodies within the penis.

Erectile dysfunction is indicated when an erection is difficult to produce.

WHAT IS THE 'ANDROPAUSE'?

Andropause is a decline in the male hormone testosterone. This drop in testosterone levels is considered to lead in some cases to loss of energy and concentration, depression, and mood swings.
