It is estimated that 30 million men in the US over 20 years old are affected by erectile dysfunction(ED).  With about 3 million new cases every year, which equates to about 1 in 10 men experiencing erectile dysfunction. ED is the inability to get and/or keep an erection firm enough for sex. The causes include brain imbalances, hormones (testosterone) imbalances, mental health issues, compromised circulation, nerve issues, and comorbidities (diabetes, hypertension, etc.). Living with ED can decrease self-confidence, increase stress and contribute to relationship problems.

Decreased libido is a reduction in sex drive. In many cases, men can maintain an erection, but the drive for sexual interaction is reduced or gone. However, it is entirely possible to experience decreased libido and ED. Decreased libido is affected by mental health issues, relationship problems, drugs, medications, and unbalanced hormones.

Symptoms of low testosterone affects 12.5 million men in the US can be:

Low sex drive

Low endurance and physical strength
