What is erectile dysfunction? 
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve and keep an erection. Though periodic erectile dysfunction is normally nothing to worry about, it is not normal to experience erectile dysfunction all or most of the time. Erectile dysfunctional often leads to increased stress and other mental issues, making it important to consult with your urologist if you suspect that you have erection problems.

Why do I have erectile dysfunction? 
This condition often stems from stress or mental issues but can be the sign of an underlying condition like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. Those who are obese, have certain conditions, use tobacco, or have certain sleep disorders may be more at risk for erectile dysfunction. Certain injuries, psychological conditions, medications, or medical conditions can also put a person at risk for erectile dysfunction.

How can my urologist help erectile dysfunction? 
A physical examination alongside various tests rule out other issues and help diagnose erectile dysfunction. Your doctor may suggest prescription medication to help relax the muscles in the penis and increase its blood flow. Injected medication or testosterone therapy can also help improve the effects of erectile dysfunction.
