What is it?
Impotence is a form of erectile dysfunction but is somewhat broader in scope than ED. Although the terms are sometimes used interchangeably, impotence expands from just the inability to have and maintain an erection, to also include factors such as a low sex drive and problems with ejaculation.
“Impotence is a problem for 20% of the population in the UK – However, it is ignored by over half of the sufferers.”
Impotence is characterized by the poor blood supply to the penis and the inability for the retention of this blood supply long enough for one to engage in satisfactory intercourse.The poor blood supply may be due to various factors – which we would get into later-, however, as far as we’re concerned with the physical aspect, most likely there are problems with the blood vessel leading to the penis.
