Erectial Disfunction

Were you looking for information about Erectile Dysfunction? Erectial disfunction is a common misspelling of erectile dysfunction.
 
Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be a total inability to achieve erection for sexual intercourse, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections. The incidence of erectile dysfunction increases with age -- roughly 5 percent of 40-year-old men and between 15 percent and 25 percent of 65-year-old men experience this condition. Any disorder that causes injury to the nerves or impairs blood flow in the penis can potentially cause erectile dysfunction. In older men, however, the cause is usually something physical like disease, injury, or side effects of drugs. Erectile dysfunction is treatable at all ages through psychotherapy; drug therapy; vacuum devices; surgery; or lifestyle changes like losing excess weight, quitting smoking, and getting more exercise.
