Many men have sexual problems. They become more common as men age. Problems can include:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Reduced or lost interest in sex
- Problems with ejaculation
- Low testosterone
Stress, illness, medicines, or emotional problems may also be factors. Occasional problems with sexual function are common. If problems last more than a few months or cause distress for you or your partner, you should see your health care provider.
