What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)…

"Erectile dysfunction" (ED) or impotence is a disease experienced by men from all ages, across every ethnicity and knows no boundaries. It is estimated that more than 3 million men in Malaysia suffer from ED. Sex is one of the basic needs of every individual that needs to be met in accordance with the human nature.
