 Impotence
Impotence can be a significant problem for men going through male menopause.

Impotence is defined as the inability to maintain an erection adequate for satisfactory sexual performance. Impotence (erectile dysfunction) affects an estimated 20 million men in North America and is usually defined as the inability to have penile erections sufficient for intercourse. It affects at least 25% of all men over the age of 50. A loss of libido and subsequent impotence has an organic etiology in over 85% of cases while the remainder is related to psychological problems.
