Meaning of Impotency
Erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence is sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual activity. A penile erection is the hydraulic effect of blood entering and being retained in sponge-like bodies within the penis. The process is most often initiated as a result of sexual arousal, when signals are transmitted from the brain to nerves in the penis. The most important organic causes are cardiovascular disease and diabetes, neurological problems (for example, trauma from prostatectomy surgery), hormonal insufficiencies (hypogonadism) and drug side effects. - See link

 

Impotency in Spanish is Disfunción eréctil
La disfunción eréctil (con frecuencia aún llamada en español incorrectamente impotencia, que técnicamente ya no es el término aceptado por los especialistas en sexología) es la incapacidad repetida de lograr o mantener una erección lo suficientemente firme como para tener una relación sexual satisfactoria. - See link
