Several studies conclude that male impotence usually affects older men, but younger men can also suffer from this condition. It is much more difficult to have an accurate idea of how many young people suffer from impotence or who needs to treat impotent problem, as they are reluctant to talk about their sexual impotence compared with older men. This is perhaps because they feel embarrassed to talk about this problem. However, it is estimated that there are a lot of young people to suffer from this problem.
Causes of impotence in young men
In older men, impotence is often caused by physical changes such as narrowing of the arteries. This is not true in young men; this type of impotence may be in the past linked to various psychological causes. The main cause for the onset of psychological impotence in youth is thought to be anxiety, which in turn can be caused by various problems.
Anxiety may be caused by:
· Fear of sex or a negative performance.
· The fear of getting partner pregnant or catch an (sexually transmitted diseases) STD.
· Lack of experience or bad sexual experience in the past.
· Be rushed or fear of being caught.
Anxiety is not however the only cause of erectile dysfunction in youth; depression, stress and conflicts with the partner may also have their share.
Facts about the lifestyle
Although impotence in young men is more related to psychological factors, lifestyle issues can also have an impact, such as excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, recreational drugs and obesity. If you are having problems with your erection, it is the reflection of your lifestyle and the changes you can implement to have a positive impact on the problem.
Treating impotence problem in younger men
Treating male impotence nowadays is much easier, since most of the available treatments are non-invasive and has minimal risk. However, younger men should consult a doctor before taking any other action, because making the wrong choice in terms of treatment can have a detrimental effect on their health.
Medicinal products subject to medical prescription are probably the most common form of treatment for men suffering from impotence. Medicinal products subject to medical prescription such as Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, have taken precautions; however, may cause side effects. These drugs are not aphrodisiacs and although may have some serious side effects but are rare. These drugs should be duly recommended by a doctor before taking.
If anxiety or other psychological reasons are the cause of your impotence, it is extremely important to go to the source of the problem. Visit a therapist and talk about the problem openly. It can help you find the cause of the problem and may be a permanent solution in the long run, more appropriate than a subject to medical prescription.
