Erectile dysfunction can be defined as inability to attain or maintain erection or the lack of a certain degree of stiffness in the penis that allows men to be able to perform sexual intercourse.
It is also considered an erectile dysfunction if the stiffness occurs for a temporary period that does not allow the man to perform adequately during sexual intercourse. This impotence may be a temporary symptom or in some cases, it may be a lifelong condition.
To be more aware of this problem, we must know how the erection process occurs?

As for the causes of erectile dysfunction:

-Medications also can play a major role as taking certain types of high blood pressure medications, chemotherapy drugs for cancer patients or narcotic substances may affect a person with erectile dysfunction.
