Occasional episodes of erectile dysfunction are normal, and affect most men from time to time, especially if they are tired, stressed, or have been drinking too much alcohol.
Changes in erectile function are a normal part of aging. For example, as men get older, it may take longer for them to become aroused, and the erection may not be as firm as it was previously.
However, even though erectile dysfunction becomes more common with age, it can affect men of any age. Regardless of how old you are, if you regularly experience issues getting or keeping an erection, it is important to consult your healthcare professional so that any underlying causes can be investigated and addressed.
