Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction, or impotence, is characterized by the inability to achieve and sustain an erection firm enough for sexual activity. Occasional difficulties with erections may not be alarming, but persistent erectile dysfunction can lead to stress, impact self-confidence, and contribute to relationship challenges.

It's crucial to recognise that struggles in achieving or maintaining an erection may signify an underlying health issue requiring treatment and can also serve as a potential risk factor for heart disease.

Finding out the cause of erectile dysfunction is an important step toward treating it. At Kena Health, our doctors will ensure you get the necessary tests to establish the cause of this condition, provide advice on treatment options, and if there is a need we will refer you for specialised management.
