Causes of erectile dysfunction in Men around their 20s

Some of the main contributing factors to erectile dysfunction in young men include smoking, drinking, pollution and other unhealthy habits that slow down your internal system. While body age plays a major role in causing erectile dysfunction or impotency, there are a few other reasons which contribute to the condition in young men:

1. Smoking is one of the main contributors to erectile dysfunction in young men. Smoking damages your blood vessels and the nicotine and tar accumulated in your body affects your liver and your lungs, which in return creates blockage in your arteries. Apart from causing cancer, now smoking can also seriously hamper a young man’s sex life.

2. Studies suggest that being overweight is not only unhealthy but contributes significantly to erectile dysfunction across all age group. The accumulation of fat in the abdominal region is dangerous. It curbs and disrupts the movement of blood and restricts the flow of blood through the arteries to the male organ. While it makes you inactive and lazy, blocking testosterone secretion, it also creates blockage in the arteries, which then leads to erectile dysfunction.

3. Depression.

Depression can cause loss of libido and diminish your interest in exploring sexual activities. It also makes your system slow and causes your blood vessels and heart to pump out low amount of blood in your pelvic area. A long-term disorder can cause impotency as your body lacks interest and becomes asexual and producing less male sexual hormones.

4. Young men or anybody for that matter getting habituated to drugs might affect your sexual life by causing erectile dysfunction. The young men who down three or more drinks a week are likely to suffer from sexual dysfunction. Alcohol serves as a potent depressant. When consumed heavily, it can reduce a young man’s libido and ability to perform in the bedroom.

5. The act of putting on a condom could cause stress, leading to erectile dysfunction in young men. Most young men tend to lose an erection when putting on a condom as it is a break from stimulation, reducing sensation.

6. Long-term opioid treatment can cause erectile dysfunction and infertility among young men. Long acting opioids and prolonged treatment with either short or long acting opioid causes more often hypogonadism leading to erectile dysfunction in men and infertility in female patents.
