Erectile dysfunction is thought to be a common problem with the Middle-aged and older men, while sparing the young, college aged men. But now, Dr. Najah S. Musacchio, a fellow at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago, went a step further in finding out if this problem could have hit even the young!
To delve deeper and understand, Musacchio and fellow researchers began a survey of the college-age males in Chicago to throw more light on this subject.
The finding really surprised the researchers because nearly 13 % of the men reported having suffered erectile dysfunction, while 25 percent said the erection didn't hold on even till they put on a condom, and another 6 percent said they resorted to drugs like Viagra, Cialis or Levitra to alleviate this problem. According to Dr. Irwin Goldstein, a Boston-based urologist specializing in sexual medicine, many young people are suffering from the erectile dysfunction problem and are not going out to seek help.
