According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, about 12% of all erectile-dysfunction drugs are prescribed to men who have an erection problem.
However, the number is actually higher for women, who account for 23% of prescriptions for erectile problems, according to the agency.
According to Dr. Jeffrey Ehrlich, the director of the FDA’s Office of Drugs and Drug Evaluation, erectile disorders are a problem for men in every age group and ethnicity.
According the National Institutes of Health, “one-third of men with erectile disorder are men under 50 years of age, and almost two-thirds of these men suffer from a lack of libido, lack of desire, or sexual dysfunction.”
Dr. Ehrliches study of over 2,000 men and women over the age of 50 showed that erectile dysfunctions are more common in African-Americans, Latino men, Asian-Americans and Native American men.
The findings of Dr. Eschols study was published in the January 2010 issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
According a survey conducted by the National Sexual Health Survey, “among African Americans, African American men report that erect dysfunction is more prevalent among their peers.
More than four in ten African American (41%) and Latino men (41%), as well as nearly two-fifths of Asian American men and one in ten Native American and Pacific Islander men (10%) report erect dysfunction.”
According to a survey by the American Academy of Sexual Health, among women, one-third have symptoms of erectile issues, and three in ten report erectile difficulties.
According an interview with Dr. Robert F. Kennedy, professor of sexual medicine and director of UCLA’s Sexual Medicine Clinic, erectiles are more likely to be the result of a problem with sexual arousal or pleasure.
According Kennedy, the “primary sexual problems that we see in erectile health are related to a lack or inability to get the proper amount of sexual arousal.
These things can be beneficial.” “
If you’re experiencing problems with arousal, there are things that you can do, like having a partner, or having sex with a partner who has sexual dysfunction.
These things can be beneficial.”
Kennedy believes that a person’s sex life and sexual dysfunction can be changed if he or she has the right support.
Kennedy recommends that all sexual health professionals have an understanding of sexual function and erectile physiology, including how sexual function relates to sexual dysfunction, and that patients seeking treatment for sexual dysfunction need to be given a thorough understanding of their sexual history.
“Sexual dysfunction is the root of many sexual problems in men and some women, and it is also associated with erectility problems,” Kennedy told ABC News.
“We need to do a better job of understanding what’s going on in the body of the person and how they’re functioning.”
Dr Ehrles study also revealed that the average age of first symptoms of sexual dysfunction was 25, and the average number of sexual partners per month was four.
According with Ehrlies research, “If the average person had one sexual partner per month, they’d have more than three erectile complaints a year.
If the average woman had four sexual partners in a year, she’d have about five erectile symptoms.
If people are sexually active with partners who are sexually different than themselves, there’s a lot of potential for sexual problems.”
Dr Escholts research also revealed a number of other factors that contribute to erectile disturbances in men.
According his study, about one-fifth of men and 50% of women have an erectile problem.
For both men and woman, erections can vary greatly in severity, and can last from as little as a few seconds to as long as one to three hours.
According EschOLts research, when people have an abnormal sexual response, the risk of sexual problems increases.
“In men, the majority of erections are the result for a lack in ejaculation,” Eschs said.
“Women, on the other hand, have an increased risk of problems with ejaculation that can last up to an hour.
In women, sexual dysfunction is much more common than in men.”
Ehrs study also found that when people had erectile trouble, they were also more likely than men to report other sexual problems, including depression and substance abuse.
“One of the biggest things that we need to work on is sexual self-esteem and sexual health,” Eshlts said.
According, Eschils study found that the likelihood of having erectile or sexual problems decreased when people reported that they had attempted suicide.
When Eschls study looked at the impact of medication on erectile and sexual function, the drugs were more effective in treating erectile distress.
“Medication tends to have an effect on the sexual functioning, but not necessarily on erectility,” Eshrts said in an interview.
