Erection problems (erectile dysfunction)

An erection problem means that you can't get or keep an erection that is firm enough for you to have sex. Erection problems are also called erectile dysfunction or impotence.

Erection problems can happen at any age but are more common if you have other health problems, like diabetes. Having an occasional episode is considered normal and usually isn't a serious problem.
