Dentist 's  Response
erectile dysfunction (ED), is the inability to maintain an erection, and is usually a symptom of a disease, rather than a problem on its own. Unlike most hernias that are possible causes of impotence, an indirect inguinal hernia is a direct cause of ED; in this case, the hernia becomes strangulated, and descends into the groin. Surgery releases the protrusion and prevents further damage from the strangulated hernia, relieving impotence.Consult your doctor regarding ED medications.
