Erectile Dysfunction Tool

erectile dysfunction tool

This quiz is based on the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5), which is a widely used method to detect and assess the severity of erectile dysfunction. The quiz is scored out of 25 and divides the erectile dysfunction into 5 categories - no dysfunction, mild, mild-moderate, moderate and severe.

Although this is a useful screening tool for erectile dysfunction, it is not a replacement for a medical consultation and professional medical advice. Print out your results and visit your doctor for proper assessment and to find out treatment options for erectile dysfunction.
