What Impotence Means
Impotence is just another word for erectile dysfunction (ED). It’s when a man has difficulty getting or keeping an erection long enough for sex. When you hear someone talk about impotence, he’s talking about ED.
Most of the time, this site will use the words erectile dysfunction and ED instead of impotence. But they’re the same thing. And when you talk to your doctor, you can use either term. Whatever makes you most comfortable.
BLOOD FLOW IS KEY.
ED occurs when not enough blood flows to the penis, preventing an erection.
AND IT’S MORE COMMON THAN
YOU THINK.
Turns out, approximately half of men over 40 have some difficulty getting or keeping an erection. So your age can be a factor.
BUT IT’S NOT THE SAME FOR EVERYONE.
ED can happen in a few ways. Some men can’t get an erection. Some can, but it’s not hard enough for sex. Others can get a hard erection but lose it before or during sex. Learn more about erectile dysfunction symptoms.
HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE.
Erectile dysfunction is not all in your head. It’s not just a part of aging that you have to accept. It’s a real medical condition, so it should be addressed like one. In most cases, your erections won’t improve without treatment.
So talk to your doctor. It’s the first step to getting erectile dysfunction treatment.
