Although it might feel like the individual’s complication it really does have an essential impact on a couple’s life together.
It is important for a man to consult a physician when symptoms of ED first arise for proper diagnosis.
SYMPTOMS OF ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION/ED:
1. Unable to have or keep an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse

Don’t let embarrassment prevent you from seeking the help that can make a difference. It is important to understand that you are not alone and there are options that can help. ED is not something that anyone should be expected to live with and it is important to note that It is not a common symptom of aging.
Everyone’s situation is different that is why it is important to be properly evaluated by a physician. Once you seek a physician’s help they may suggest a change in daily activity such as switching up your diet and/or introducing medications to help improve the issue.
