Cholesterol Linked To ED?

HOW MAY HIGH CHOLESTEROL AFFECT ERECTILE FUNCTION? High cholesterol may be associated with erectile dysfunction (ED).

Difficulty getting and keeping an erection that lasts long enough for sexual activity is known as ED. Some men have trouble getting an erection in the first place, while others have difficulty keeping one. These problems may occur frequently or just occasionally.

If there is too much cholesterol in your body, it sticks to the walls of the arteries. When cholesterol builds up, it creates a smaller opening for blood to pass through. This may lead to less blood flow to the penis, which may create erectile problems.
