Erectile dysfunction — also called ED — is when your penis can't get firm enough to have sex or you can't stay firm enough to finish having sex.
Erectile dysfunction can be an embarrassing thing to talk about, but it doesn’t need to be. More than half of people with penises experience some form of ED at some point in their lives, and people living with diabetes are three times more likely to have ED. ED can lead to performance anxiety, a negative impact on self-esteem and personal relationships, and even clinical depression.
The good news is ED is often treatable.
