What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

If a man regularly finds it difficult to getting or maintaining an erection, he may have erectile dysfunction. ED tends to rise with age, the older the man gets the more prone he is not being able to get or keep an erection. However, many wonder what the root cause of erectile dysfunction is. The truth is, it could be a number of things. ED can be affected by blood flow, nerve supply, and/or hormones. It should also be noted that erectile dysfunction could be a potential warning flag for other health issues such as diabetes, side effects from medications, Multiple Sclerosis and more.
