Sexual Function

Erectile Dysfunction is a very common problem among Canadian men. It can affect men of all ages.

To enjoy good sexual function a man requires a healthy libido(the desire to have sex), healthy functioning nerves to send a signal from the brain to the penis and healthy blood vessels to deliver blood into the penis. Many things can affect any or all of these factors. In those men with a healthy libido, by far the commonest factor relates to blood vessels. The same sorts of things than can give men high blood pressure and heart disease affect the blood vessels within the penis preventing the proper delivery of blood and the ability to form a good erection.
