Causes and Symptoms

Symptoms of ED include:

  • Erections that are too soft for sexual intercourse.
  • Erections that are too brief for sexual intercourse.
  • An inability to achieve erections.

Men who cannot get or maintain an erection that lasts long enough or is rigid enough to complete sexual intercourse is considered to have erectile dysfunction.

Diabetes: The link between chronic disease and ED is most striking for diabetes. Men with diabetes are three times more likely to have erectile dysfunction. Diabetic men experience ED 10 to 15 years earlier than men without diabetes.
