Self Test on Male Erectile Dysfunction
(aka 'MED', 'impotence', 'acratia')

[Deutsch: ]

Do you show related symptoms?

The following self test screens for symptoms of Male Erectile Dysfunction (also known as 'MED' or 'impotence') and also tests the ED risk score, combined with a test on prostate enlargement developed by Bayer®. By that, it is an easy (and in its kind unique) way to test not only on the existence of Erectile Dysfunction (chronical Erectile Dysfuntion), but at the same time also the probability of constitutional causes, especially potentially harmful ones like a prostate enlargment with a single test. Additionally, psychological components of Erectile Dysfunctions are evaluated - consequently, this test can provide utmost marksmanship at finding out about presumable causes of an eventually detected Erectile Dysfunction.

Please note: because of the conditions of a test like this and with the following list of questions, this test shouldn't be mistaken a diagnostic test - it can not replace a medical, psychological or therapeutic diagnosis or preventive medical checkups. Prostate cancer, for example, can occur without showing any physiological discomfort. In suspicious cases it is thereby strongly suggested to undergo a test or evaluation at a doctor to exlude health risks as a reason.

The test involves 24 questions and will take about 5 minutes to complete.
After submitting your answers, your results will be displayed.

Privacy is considered as important by me as a psychotherapist: your answers will be saved for statistical reasons, but without any personal reference which would allow a conclusion about your identity. To avoid abuse of this questionnaire, your IP address will be recorded.
