Epidemiology of erectile dysfunction.

Author information

Section of Urology, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, Georgia, USA.


Epidemiologic studies are descriptive and analytical. The prevalence of erectile dysfunction in various community studies has varied from as low of 7% to as high as 52%. The prevalence of erectile dysfunction increases with age. Incidence data are scarce but a recent study of white males in the United States described an incidence of 26 cases per 1000 man-years. Risk factors for erectile dysfunction include certain medications, such as cardiovascular medications and psychotropic drugs, and chronic diseases, particularly neurologic diseases and diabetes mellitus.
