Resumo: Objective: The aim of this study was to quantify the prevalence of erectile dysfunction and analyse related factors in portuguese prison guards. Subjects and methods: In a cross-sectional approach we included all prison guards from 12 prisons in Portugal. The data was collected using a self-administrated questionnaire. We distributed 1190 questionnaires and received 1040 (87.4%). The questionnaires without information about sex and age and those referring to females (120) were excluded from the analysis (final sample=748). Erectile dysfunction was measured using a IIEF-5 scale that includes five questions (scores ranging from 1 to 25). Erectile dysfunction were classified into four categories: severe (1-7), moderate (8-11), mild to moderate (12-16), mild (17-21), and no erectile dysfunction (22-25). Results: The prevalence of erectile dysfunction was 40.4%, distributed according to the following categories: severe/moderate=0.6%, mild to moderate=8.4%, mild =31.5%. Erectile dysfunction was associated with age (≤40 years 29.5%, 41-50 years 40.0%, >50 years 62,1%, p<0.01), marital status (single 37.5%, married or living with partner 40.3%, divorced/separated/widowed 62.5%, p<0.01), insomnia (yes 46.5%, no 35.6%, p<0.01), depression (yes 60.9%, no 25.9%, p<0.01), excessive daytime sleepiness (yes 44.6%, no 31.6%, p<0.01), shift-working (yes 37.3%, no 50.0%, p<0.01), sports practice (yes 33.0%, no 51.6%, p<0.01), alcohol drinking (yes 53.8%, no 37.8%, p<0.01) and life satisfaction (yes 39.2%, no 71.4%, p<0.01). The life prevalence of medication used to help maintain erection was 6.2%. Conclusion: Erectile dysfunction is a high prevalent condition in male guards and it is associated with personal factors and work-related conditions.
