What is Erectile Dysfunction?

 

 

Erectile dysfunction, AKA "ED" / "impotence" / "weak erection", the inability to obtain or maintain an erection that is rigid enough for complete sexual intercourse, provided that this occurs in more than 50% of attempts.

 

This means that if failure of erection occurs every once in a while, less than 50% of attempts, it is not considered as impotence or erectile dysfunction.

Accordingly, occasional failure of erection possibly due to work overload, interpersonal distress ..etc should not be classified as ED requiring medical intervention.
