How can erectile dysfunction affect my sex life?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner
Erectile dysfunction may have a significant impact on your sex life, especially if it's left untreated. If you're unable to get or keep an erection long enough to have sex, your sex life will obviously suffer.
