Medical Reference
A.

A man has erection problems if he cannot get or keep an erection that is firm enough for him to have sex. Erection problems are also called erectile dysfunction or impotence.

Erection problems can occur at any age. But they are more common in older men, who often have other health problems. Treatment can help both older and younger men.

Erection problems may be the inability for the erection to be maintained or sustained for a period of time to achieve intercourse. It may also be the inability to achieve an erection entirely.
