How many American men experience erectile dysfunction?

More than 30 million men in the United States have erectile dysfunction (ED) or an inability to sustain an erection to have sex. While ED statistics increase with age, this common condition does not have to be part of the aging process. In fact, drugs such as sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra) and tadalafil (Cialis) can help men of all ages achieve or sustain an adequate erection and start to enjoy a fulfilling sexual relationship.
