Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or keep an erection. It can be a total inability to achieve an erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections.

Although erectile dysfunction can have a negative impact on your sex life, it is a treatable condition. With the help of your doctor, you can manage underlying health conditions and medications that cause ED. You may also benefit from penile implants or other treatments.
