Sex and sexual problems have always been treated as taboo in our culture. A topic that is considered humiliating and immoral to converse, especially with the elders of the society. Not talking about or knowing about sexual issues is the fact many suffer from them for years and years. Sexual problems are so common that they can happen to anyone.   

The sexual problem we will discuss in the blog is ‘Erectile Dysfunction (Istirkha-e- Qazeeb).’   

Erectile Dysfunction or Istirkha-e-Qazeeb is a persistent failure or repeated inability to achieve an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. A man who cannot achieve or maintain an erection to have satisfying intercourse loses interest in any sexual activity and even reaches ejaculation and orgasm.   

Although it is not rare for a man to have some issues with erections from time to time, repeatedly or progressively happening erectile dysfunction with sex is not normal and needs to be treated.   

Statistics indicate more than 50% of men over 40 experiences Erectile Dysfunction; the problem can start even at a younger age. Sometimes the mental state affects the ability to achieve an erection. Not everything can be cured at home, sexual problems need to be discussed with a sexologist.
