Erectile dysfunction

At Fertility Solutions we completely understand that erectile dysfunction can be a distressing problem for men and you may feel embarrassed to discuss this issue with anyone.

What is erectile dysfunction

Erection difficulties are also known an erectile dysfunction and impotence which occurs when men experience regular problems in achieving a satisfactory erection suitable for sexual intercourse.

  • Everyone who has an erectile dysfunction will have different symptoms, some men may not be able to get an erection at all, some men will only have them for a short time, or some will have them inconsistently.
  • There are several reasons why men will experience erectile dysfunction issues. Psychological problems account for about 20% of the causes in men with erectile dysfunction. Psychological factors can include stress, guilt, fear of sexual failure, depression and low self-esteem.

  • In fact, it is a common problem amongst men and it is estimated that 5 - 10% of men at 40 years and up to 25% of men at 65 years suffer from erectile dysfunction.
  • 1 in 3 men who experience erectile dysfunction have underlying medical reasons. Damage to arteries and muscle tissue can prevent an erection. Diseases like heart disease and diabetes account for about 70% of erectile problems. Prostate and other pelvic surgery can also cause erectile dysfunction.

Traditionally, the response to a couple facing fertility problems has been to focus on the woman with little evaluation of the male partner.

Often, assessing the couple as a whole and working to correct abnormal tests will result in drastic improvements in male fertility and therefore likelihood of a successful pregnancy.
