Abstract: Background: chronic and persistent use of alcohol is known to induce sexual dysfunction (Premature Ejaculation, sexual pleasure, sexual desire, arousal, orgasmic function, and intercourse satisfaction). This study is specifically conducted to determine and correlate erectile dysfunction and Alcohol use disorder. Aim: The aim is to estimate the prevalence of erectile dysfunction in male subjects with alcohol use disorder. Materials and Methods: one hundred two patients with alcohol use disorder attending from out - patient and in - patient psychiatry department of the Tertiary Care Center were assessed for erectile dysfunction using International Index of Erectile Function - 5 (IIEF - 5) Questionnaire and alcohol dependence were assessed on severity of Alcohol Dependence Questionnaire (SADQ) for severity. Result: Higher prevalence of erectile dysfunction found in patients of alcohol use disorder. The amount of alcohol consumed appeared to be the most significant predictor of developing erectile dysfunction. Conclusion: Erectile Dysfunction is common in patients with alcohol use disorder. Heavy drinking proportionately increases the risk. Clinicians need to routinely assess sexual functioning in alcoholic patients.
