Now the question is, how do you know if you are suffering with Erectile Dysfunction?

How do we have an erection?

An erection occurs as a result of changes within the nerves, muscles, and blood vessels of the penis. When we think about sex or become stimulated, the signals travel down the nerves and the blood vessels supplying blood to the penis open further, blood is pumped into the penis so it enlarges and becomes firm.

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile Dysfunction is when you have repeated inability to get or keep a firm erection during the intercourse. Erectile Dysfunction happens because not enough blood can get into penis, or stay in the penis long enough to allow an erection.
