The International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5) questionnaire below will provide you with a quick result in the form of a score from 5 to 25.
Men with concerns about their erectile function can take this quick test and get some information on whether it might be good to seek help for ED.
What Qualifies as an Erectile Dysfunction Problem?
Most men have experienced some difficulty in getting or keeping an erection. Having trouble when you’re nervous or have had too much to drink may not be something to be concerned about.
It isn’t erectile dysfunction unless you are experiencing ongoing difficulty.
The Canadian Study of Erectile Dysfunction identified 49.4% of men over 40 with ED (Canadian Urological Association erectile dysfunction guideline 2015). Though all men may experience an occasional lapse of sexual function, ED is the persistent inability to achieve an erection, despite being sexually aroused.
IIEF-5 Erectile Dysfunction Questionnaire Scoring
Each of the questions has five possible responses, with score values form one to five.
Your total score is simply the sum of the values of all five answers to the ED test questions.
Possible ED Test Score Ranges
22-25: No erectile dysfunction
17-21: Mild erectile dysfunction
12-16: Mild to moderate erectile dysfunction
8-11: Moderate erectile dysfunction
5-7: Severe erectile dysfunction
The results of this brief self-evaluation should be used as a guide for whether you might want to consult with a doctor, and not as a replacement for a medical consultation.

About the International Index of Erectile Function
The longer full length version of the 15-question International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) Questionnaire is a validated, multidimensional, self-administered investigation that has been found useful in the clinical assessment of erectile dysfunction and treatment outcomes in clinical trials.
A score of 0-5 is awarded to each of the 15 questions that examine the 4 main domains of male sexual function: erectile function, orgasmic function, sexual desire and intercourse satisfaction.
The IIEF Questionnaire was tested in a series of 111 men with sexual dysfunction and 109 age-matched, normal volunteers (Rosen R, Riley A, Wagner G, et al. The International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF): A multidimensional scale for assessment of erectile dysfunction. Urology, 1997, 49: 822-830.) and its contextual validity was confirmed.
IIEF assessment is limited by the superficial assessment of psycho sexual background and the very limited assessment of partner relationship, both important factors in the presentation of male sexual dysfunction. Analysis of the questionnaire should, therefore, be viewed as an adjunct to, rather than a substitute for, a detailed sexual history and examination.

The simplified IIEF-5, as a diagnostic tool, has been shown to be an easy method which can be used to evaluate this condition in studies with a great number of men.
It is not a substitute for personalized medical attention for men needing help with ED but can be a useful data gathering tool for initial screening, especially for the expeditious processing of larger numbers of men getting tested for erectile dysfunction (Department of Urology, Andrology Division, Santa Casa Hospital and Fundação Faculdade Federal de Ciências Médicas, Porto Alegre, Brazil. firstname.lastname@example.org).
