Erectile Dysfunction is the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual activity. Dr. S.S. Vasan, Manipal Fertility, Bengaluru said: “The cases of Erectile dysfunction have risen significantly in the past decade. While men believe that the main cause for the disorder is aging, it isn’t necessarily true. Changing lifestyles, stress, lack of exercise excessive smoking and drinking can have substantial impact on a person’s sexual health.”
"We must also keep in mind that India is the diabetic capital of the world and has high incidence of hypertension and metabolic disorders, which in a way also lead to an increased risk of ED. Often, men suffering from the disorder are shy in seeking medical help and start self-diagnosis or consult quacks, a practice that can be extremely detrimental for the condition. It is important to understand that a cure for this problem is available at all ages."
