How does a man achieve an erection?
For a man to have an erection, a complex process takes place within his body.
ED occurs when this process does not progress normally. Arousal and erections are physical and mental activities, so it is important to remember that the sexual partner plays an integral role. Effective management of erection problems and erectile dysfunction is often more successful if the sexual partner is involved with the evaluation and treatment.
