More than ever, it’s important to recognize depression and know how to seek help for it.

For many men, erectile dysfunction (ED) is something they would rather not think about – and even fewer want to talk about it. That’s understandable. This condition can cause embarrassment and cause shame for some men who experience it.

ED is often thought of as an older man’s problem. Most men have erection problems every now and then. This is normal. While it is most common in older men, it is experienced by men of all ages.


Despite women’s increased longevity they continue to be described as the weaker sex. But what really determines which sex is, in fact, the weakest? Perhaps the weaker sex might just be a person who won’t risk a trip to the doctor. And that’s usually men, not women.
