- Program Description
Impotence is estimated to affect a staggering 30 million American men, most of whom don't seek treatment. Contrary to popular belief, impotence is often caused by health problems which restrict blood flow to the penis, not by psychological problems. Now there is an arsenal of treatments, including the newly FDA-approved pill Viagra, with other oral medications in development. The program examines male erectile dysfunction and its medical treatments. "The Truth About Impotence" profiles several men who have experienced this problem, explores its physiological and psychological aspects, and explains different treatments for the condition.
