It’s more common for men over the age of 50 to suffer from erectile dysfunction. However, according to a 2013 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, an estimated 1 in 4 ED patients are under the age of 40. Because we rarely hear of this situation, these young men feel more embarrassed and alone.
Some physicians who encounter young patients suffering from erectile dysfunction usually say that men their age should not be too worried and that it’s probably due to stress and anxiety.
The harsh reality is that erectile dysfunction is extremely common for all age groups and for various reasons. It affects millions of men in the United States, with doctors reporting an increasing number of younger patients. Researchers have identified these possible causes:
Where it comes from
Erectile dysfunction has many potential causes that can be divided into 2 categories: physical and psychological.
Physical: When the condition is chronic, meaning persistent and consistent, it’s most like biological, regardless of age. In younger men, issues like a sports injury, long distance bike riding, sexual injury, and other physical trauma may cause temporary erectile dysfunction. Extensive cigarette, alcohol, and drug intake also play a role in how you achieve an erection.
Psychological: Anxiety, stress, and other emotional issues are also important factors in ED.
How it affects your love life
Younger patients most likely feel cheated out of having a good sex life. Especially since not everyone will have understanding partners, this condition brings about larger self-esteem issues and anxiety.
Many of those living in the “hookup culture” feel incredibly embarrassed when they fail to maintain an erection, leading to some individuals avoiding sexual intercourse completely.
Finding a solution
Many physicians tend to assume younger patients are suffering only temporary or psychological ED, preventing these men from getting the treatment they need. It is never right to assume this. Medical tests are needed to assess the patient’s condition, figure out the underlying cause, and the suitable solution.
It’s important to note that Viagra and other mass produced drugs don’t provide the right solution every time. Seeing medical professionals to find out the real reason before venturing out to medication will help you save time and effort in the long run.
Partners are also very much involved in the healing process as it is not only the patient’s problem, but theirs too. Their support can help motivate and keep the patient relaxed throughout the process.
