What is impotence?

Impotence is the inability to sustain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse. It is also known as erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction is a common and distressing medical condition that is estimated to affect one in ten men aged 18 or over at some stage in their lives. The incidence of erectile dysfunction increases with age; 38 percent of men aged between 60-69 and 57 percent of men aged over 70 are thought to suffer from erectile dysfunction.
A recent survey carried out by the Erectile Dysfunction Information Bureau revealed that men consider impotence to be the most embarrassing medical problem to discuss with a doctor. They estimate that only 10 percent of men who experience impotence ever seek medical help.

It is important to realise that impotence is a common sexual problem; you should not allow it to become a source of tension in an otherwise healthy and fulfilling relationship.
