Sexual dysfunction does not spare even the young men.
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.

Goldstein feels that nearly 20 to 25 percent of college-aged males are gripped with some form of sexual problem. The survey also revealed that the young who faced the ED problem did not want to discuss the problem with their health care providers. This has indeed caught the attention of researchers and health care workers, because a whole host of associated problems can crop up due to erectile dysfunction if left untreated. ED is known to trigger problems of depression, anxiety and decreased sexual satisfaction. The survey also revealed that the young men resorted to alcohol, drugs in combination with ED medications to boost the sexual performance.

yes i'm 25 and yet i have a sexual dysfunction already. i don't drink alchohol. I might be missing out on exercising daily. I used to masturbate everyday in the morning because i had an erection and won't go down not even after the shower. But now everythings a nightmare, i don't have erections in the morning anymore. I must sleep first in order to have sex later in the middle of the night or in the morning.I don't know what's wrong. Could it be that since i grduated i had to face the stress of doing work? Or is it the stress from my mom with cancer? is it because i think too much? is it because i drive in my car all day long everyday causing stress without my knowing it?I don't dare use condoms because they make my penis go down. Could it be that my diabetes is starting at an early age? Why is this happening to a healthy guy like me?
