MENS HEALTH MYTH #5

YOU DONT HAVE ED IF YOU CAN GET AN ERECTION

Actually, you could easily have erectile dysfunction (ED) despite being able to get an erection simply because the symptoms of ED are not the same for every guy.

 

ED is usually defined as the inability to get and keep an erection satisfying enough for sex. That means some guys might have problems getting an erection while others might have difficulty maintaining it long enough for sex. Others still may get an erection but it won't be hard enough for penetrative sex. The moral of the story?  ED can manifest in different ways and understanding exactly what symptoms you have should give you a far more hope of overcoming ED, however it may affect you. 1
