Abstract

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the inability of a man to get and maintain an erection that is sufficient for sexual intercourse, and is a common problem. ED commonly has a profound negative impact on quality of life in the patient and his partner, which can result in changes to sexual self-confidence. This article outlines strategies for identifying and managing ED in primary care, outlining what needs to be assessed and the various treatment options available to manage the condition.
