The erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or maintain an erection for a satisfied intercourse. This can affect the patient's life with an impact on his partner life and their relationship. We had conducted a transversal descriptive and analytical study based on prospective data's during a period of six month time (January 1st to June 30th). The sample population were Yalgado Ouedraogo University medical center male outpatient aged 18 year and up from the urology-andrology department. The evaluation of the ED was done by using a self survey form of the International Index of the Erectile Function simplified in five questions (IIEF5). A total of 440 patients, 410 had and exploited survey. The average age of the included patients was 52.4 +/- 14.1 (the extremes were 24 and 68 years old). 111 patients had an ED with a prevalence of 27%. The average age who had an ED was 48.2 +/-11.9 years old. The ED by age prevalence showed an progressive increase with age. The ED is frequent in our hospital urology department. This concerns almost 1/3 of our department patients. Its occurence and severity are influenced by its length, the age, the smokes, the obesity, the cardiovascular diseases, and the SBAU.
