There are many guys who suffer from several health issues and they gets depressed somewhere in their life. The men’s health condition if not well then it matters a lot because they cannot get the sexual satisfaction. One of my friend has the condition of erectile dysfunction and he is very depressed. I can understand his feeling but I want to know from you guys, erectile dysfunction is similar to impotence or does both have some relation between each other?

Yes, you can take the term as same. Impotence refers to erectile dysfunction (ED) although the term impotence is not as commonly used as it once was. Impotence or erectile dysfunction occurs when a man cannot maintain an erection 75% of the time to have sex or to finish having sex. However both impotence and ED are treatable and there are several ways to do that. Even life style changes and some surgery or erection devices are helpful in achieving an erection and you can enjoy sexual relationship better way.
