Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the consistent or recurrent inability of a man to attain and / or maintain a penile erection sufficient for sexual activity.

Sexual health and function are important determinants of quality of life (QoL). ED and female sexual dysfunction (FSD) are increasingly becoming more important because of an ageing population and newer therapies.
As this subject is discussed widely in the media, men and women are seeking guidance. Successful treatment of ED has been demonstrated to improve intimacy, satisfaction, and the sexual aspect of QoL, and relieve symptoms of depression.
