With simultaneous violation of both adequate and spontaneous erectile function, specialists diagnose organic erectile dysfunction.
- Weak erection. One of the important symptoms of erectile dysfunction is reduction in rigidity and frequency of erection appearance. Also, this group includes insufficient penile hardness during sexual intercourse. In this case, impotence can be sign of vascular, neurogenic, hormonal and other organic disorders, it appears more rarely due to psychological problems.
- Inability to maintain erection. One of the first manifestations of erectile dysfunction (impotence) is premature ejaculation – uncontrolled ejaculation of seminal fluid that occurs immediately at the very beginning of sexual intercourse or even before it.
