The Many Faces of Erectile Dysfunction
It’s not uncommon for men to experience erectile dysfunction (ED) at any age. However, it is more common by age 40, where approximately 40% of men experience mild to moderate symptoms associated with ED. By age 50, there is a 50% chance of erectile issues. Studies estimate that over 30 million American men suffer from various forms of ED ranging from mild to severe.
Erectile issues are not only a confidence-killer, but can cause distress in a relationship, as well as depression and anxiety. Random episodes can happen for any number of reasons and ongoing episodes of ED can be frustrating, isolating, and even a warning sign of a more serious medical problem.
