Here we reveal the facts and dispel some of the myths surrounding erectile dysfunction. We also show suffers from the city in the UK. Erectile Dysfunction does not just affect older men. Age can play a factor, but across the UK alone, there are over 4 million men suffering from ED.
Lifestyle factors such as drinking, smoking or taking recreational drugs can play a part, as well as health issues such as obesity or other medication you are on. Psychological issues such as stress, depression or anxiety can also cause impotence.
ED has a certain stigma attached to it and is often falsely linked to a lack of masculinity making it a difficult subject to discuss. However, talking about it with either your partner or doctor is the first part on the path to recovery. Exercise, a change in diet, counseling and even tablets, can all play a part in retaining an active sex life.
