Why You Shouldn’t Be Embarrassed to Talk About Erectile Dysfunction

Although it can be a sensitive and private subject, discussing erectile dysfunction (ED) doesn’t need to be embarrassing. ED is a medical condition that affects more than 18 million men in America. In fact, by their 70s, 60 percent of men will be affected by ED. As a urologist, a doctor who focuses on diseases of the urinary tract and reproductive organs, I am very comfortable having these discussions and helping patients with this condition.
