status, prevailing attitude of the female partner to the dysfunction, duration of their partnership, social status, duration of PED,
International Index of Erectile Function score, and prevailing attitude of the patient after a diagnosis of PED. The data were analyzed

diagnosis of PED than the patients who did not resolve their PED. A nonchalant or cooperative female attitude to PED improved
the possibility of PED resolution. The other variables did not influence PED resolution. Our data showed that a clear‑cut diagnosis
