Impotence and age

Alternative names
Age and impotence ; Erection difficulties - age related

Information
Question:
Do most men experience impotence (difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection)
with age?

Answer:
Age does not imply impotence, although sexual responses may become slower and less intense. For example, it may take longer to achieve an erection than it did when you were younger. On the other hand, you may maintain an erection for a longer period of time. See impotence for details.
