It’s all about risk...

Men aged 30-40 years experiencing erection problems have a seven-fold risk of coronary artery disease as they age over their next 10-15 years, and men aged 40-50 years experiencing erection problem have an increased 50 fold risk of a cardiac event in next 10 years. Erection problems can be caused by, or be an early warning sign, of ill health such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease. For more information about erection problems, log onto Erection Connection, developed by Mrs Lorraine Grover, Psychosexual Nurse Specialist and Trustee of the Sexual Advice Association.
