How is venous leak linked to erectile dysfunction?

ANSWER

Your penis must store blood to keep an erection. If the veins can’t keep blood there during an erection, you'll lose it. This is called venous leak. It may happen with vascular disease, when your blood vessels get clogged with cholesterol and other substances.
