Having erection problems from time to time is not necessarily a reason to worry. However, if erectile dysfunction is a recurring problem, it can have a negative impact on the quality of life and that of the couple. It has also been linked as a sign of heart disease risk

Is erectile dysfunction common?

Erectile dysfunction is a common problem in men of all ages and races. The risk of erectile dysfunction increases with age.


Symptoms of erectile dysfunction may include the following:

• Problems getting an erection

• Problems maintaining an erection

• Decreased sexual desire

When should you see a doctor?

Your family doctor is the first person you should consult when you have erectile problems.

Consult your doctor in the following cases:

• You are worried about your erections or have other sexual problems, such as ejaculatory dysfunction, premature or delayed ejaculation.

• You have diabetes, heart disease, or another known medical condition that may be associated with erectile dysfunction.

• You have other symptoms besides erectile dysfunction.


The causes have been divided into two large groups:

1) Psychological

2) biological or physical.

In the first there is no real physical alteration, it is a question more related to libido and the psychological environment.

The second cause can be subdivided into multiple ones, for example, those related to blood vessels, neuronal damage, hormonal alterations, etc.; Since there are so many different causes, it is important to make an accurate diagnosis, since each one has a different treatment that ranges from psychological care focused on sexual health, as well as care directed to the biological cause that causes it.
