Erectile Dysfunction – What is it?
ED is a medical condition defined as a man’s inability to get an erection. But it also refers to a man’s ability to keep a hard erection for long enough to allow satisfactory sexual activity.
More than half of all men aged 40 years and above have difficulties getting or maintaining an erection. ED may also occur in younger men.
While all men will experience occasional ED at some point of time in their lives, some find the problem disallows them from enjoying a healthy sex life.
In fact, studies show that ED affects millions of men throughout Malaysia and other cities in Asia.
There are treatments for men with ED.
Overactive bladder (OAB)
About one in 10 to one in 20 of adults over the age of 40 years experience poor bladder control.
Unfortunately most people do not seek medical care and suffer silently.
