Erectile Dysfunction at Young Age

Impotence is also called erectile dysfunction, and it is an inability to achieve erection or inability to maintain it during the entire sexual intercourse. Note that this is not a one-time failure. You should be worried when such «misfires» happen regularly.

To determine at what age impotence is considered to be early is difficult because a man should maintain potency always, regardless of age. But this is an ideal option, which in practice, unfortunately, is rare.

It is believed that early erectile dysfunction should be considered when this problem began to worry a man at the age of 35 years. It is this period, as a rule, during which the most active sexual life appears.

Interestingly, with impotence at an early age, morning erection may persist, and even masturbation is possible. But you can not lead full sexual life.

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction at Young Age

Early Erectile DysfnctionAll causes of onset of erectile dysfunction are divided into two large groups, so the disease itself is of two types:

  • psychological impotence – associated with problems and disorders in the psyche;
  • organic impotence or physiological, which is the result of any disturbance in the functioning of the body.

Most often, ED causes are precisely psychosomatic factors, which include stress, nervous tension, lack of sleep, chronic fatigue and the like.

However, erectile dysfunction can be a symptom of a very serious disease. Problems in cardiovascular system or in the genital area, infectious diseases or diseases of the thyroid gland, diabetes or a brain tumor are the main causes.

If you have ever had a spinal or hip injury, you can face this disorder at an early age and even infertility.

Impotence can be associated with your professional activities. So, hypothermia or overheating, abnormal working day or constant vibration will not benefit your male health.

Too active sex life and victories in bed are also not so useful. If you regularly surprise your partner with many hours of marathons and for long period delay moment of ejaculation, then soon you can become a victim of sexual dysfunction.

If you regularly use medications such as sedatives, antipsychotics, antidepressants, antiemetic or anticonvulsant drugs or tranquilizers, erectile dysfunction can be a side effect. But it is good that at the end of their admission you can again lead normal sexual life.

A mixed type of erectile dysfunction can happen if impotence is the result of the non-serious organic disorder, and you are very upset about this, and may even become depressed.

Diagnostics and Treatment

The effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment of erectile dysfunction depends on how frank you are with your attending physician, whom you need to tell about everything.

In most cases, doctors assign general examination to identify or eliminate causes of organic nature. Depending on the results of tests, treatment is prescribed.


Methods of prevention are always a reflection of causes of the disease. That is, it is enough to exclude from your life everything that can lead to erectile dysfunction.

Potency is greatly influenced by your lifestyle, what you eat and what bad habits you have. Therefore, if you lead healthy and active lifestyle, then you are unlikely to encounter impotence at an early age.

Do morning jogs or load the body with other moderate, but regular physical exercises, get enough sleep, take a contrast shower, eat healthy food, take necessary vitamins and you’ll feel great, and your erection will stay on high level.

But if you abuse alcohol, smoking, drugs, unhealthy and fatty foods, lead a sedentary lifestyle, then erectile dysfunction at an early age can be your problem.
