Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the condition in which the men are unable to achieve the erection or hold the erection for the sufficient amount of time during the sexual intercourse. Nearly 70% of the men in the world are suffering from the erectile dysfunction. One of the major causes of the erectile dysfunction is the inability to have a satisfactory sexual intercourse due to problems in getting the hard and long lasting erection. Erectile dysfunction along with problems of the sex life affects the normal life of an individual suffering from the erectile dysfunction. Impotence or erectile dysfunction has same adverse effects on the physical, mental, and social life of an individual suffering from the erectile dysfunction.

One of the major adverse effects caused by the erectile dysfunction is the development of lower self-esteem in the men suffering from the erectile dysfunction. The development of physiological or psychological disorders in the patient and his partner due to erectile dysfunction. Both the partners often experience a range of intense feelings and emotions. Any of these feelings can lead to a sense of hopelessness and lower self-esteem. Sexual insecurity is found to develop in the individuals suffering from the erectile dysfunction. Sexual insecurity reinforces the performance anxiety in men and creates a vicious cycle of repeated failures and increasingly negative feelings.

  • So I'm a 23 year old guy who has never had trouble with this before until recently. A couple of months ago I was with a girl i had just met, we went back to my place and I couldn't get an erection. She said it was probably because i had been drinking and we would try again in the morning, but the same thing happened then too :( She came over again a few days later but same thing happened again for a long time. Eventually I got it up and it was very hard and we were able to do it, but still really embarrassing for the first few attempts.I hoped that would be the end of it and things would be back to normal since I had had sex but last night I was with a different girl in bed and again couldn't get hard! Should I go see a doctor? I can get erections normally, when i want to masturbate or watch ****, it just seems to be when I'm with a girl ready to have sex that it just wont work :/ I'm still pretty upset about breaking up with my ex several months ago, which could be contributing to it but I have had a brief relationship since then with no problems whatsoever. HELP!
