Conditions: Erectile Dysfunction

Overview - Erectile Dysfunction

Who typically gets ED?

Poor physical and emotional health can contribute to ED. ED also is associated with medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and prostate disease. The more factors affect a man, the higher his risk of ED.

Age can also be a concern. ED is more likely to happen as a man gets older, particularly after he's 60. The occurrence of some degree of ED is 39% in men 40 years old, and 67% in those aged 70 years. ED can happen at any age, even after years of satisfying sex.

Nevertheless, age itself doesn't cause ED. Rather, it's the more frequent occurrence of certain health issues in older men, such as vascular diseases and diabetes, that accounts for the increase in ED with age.
