If you're worried your age might be affecting the hardness of your penis, there's good news and there's bad news.
The bad news is that the likelihood of erectile dysfunction does increase with age.
But the good news is that it's your attitude more than your age that determines what happens next. With the right attitude, you can try to resolve your problem however old you are.
Erectile dysfunction does become more common as men get older. But it is by no means exclusively an 'old man's problem'. If you think you are quite young to be having erection problems remember this – men of all ages can get ED (see below) and there are treatments that could help you. And if you are among the older age group, you shouldn't be disheartened either. Men in their 90's have been successfully treated for ED.
