How is erectile function assessed?

The sexual health inventory for men (SHIM) is an ED questionnaire for men to fill out on their own about the quality of their erections and how they feel about them. Each question has several possible responses. Circle the number of the response that best describes your own situation. Please be sure that you select one and only one response for each question.
