Erectile dysfunction is a violation of blood circulation in penile vessels, which leads to inability to perform sexual intercourse. Very often this term is replaced by the term «impotence», but impotence has broader meaning and, besides erectile dysfunction, involves decreased libido, inability to fertilize. The term «erectile dysfunction» is used when a man does not have erection.
Erectile dysfunction can occur in men at any age, and its causes at more mature age can be physical illnesses – diabetes, arterial hypertension.
Erectile dysfunction at young age, as a rule, has psychological roots. In most cases, it is curable, but treatment is selected individually, depending on causes provoking it.
Erectile dysfunction at young age in our time is a fairly common problem. The question is – What age is considered young for absence of erection in men, if ideally men should keep potency up to old age? Since age of the most sexual activity is considered to be 35 years old, absence of erection at this and earlier age is considered to be early impotence.How does erectile dysfunction manifest itself at young age (symptoms):
- inadequate erection for performing sexual intercourse;
- loss of erection directly during sexual intercourse;
- absence of erection.
Causes of Erectile Dysfunction at Young Age, at 30, 40 and after 50 Years
Causes of impotence in men can be psychogenic or organic. Psychogenic causes – stresses, depressions; organic – associated with impaired functioning of the body. They are peculiar not only for young men, but also for more mature generation.
As a rule, at early impotence, psychological causes predominate – psychogenic impotence develops in the form of lack of self-confidence, uncertainty in one’s strengths, especially in case of unsuccessful experience earlier.
Causes of impotence in men after 50 are associated, as a rule, with disabilities in the body – atherosclerosis, diabetes, prostatitis, blood stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, consequences of bad habits. Due to diseases, condition of vessels walls, in particular vessels of genital organs, worsens. Blood supply to penis worsens, metabolic processes in its tissues are disrupted.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW
Potency is strongly influenced by lifestyle of a man, so alcohol plays an important role in deterioration of erectile function.
Most common causes of impotence at young age are:
- prolonged sexual abstinence;
- irregular sexual life or late onset of sexual activity;
- unsuccessful first sexual experience.
Causes of impotence in 30 years in absence of diseases are associated, as a rule, with lack of normal sexual life, which can lead to stagnation in pelvic region, impaired blood circulation and microcirculation, and impaired metabolic processes. These processes entail progression of erectile dysfunction.
Causes of impotence in 40 years for men, as a rule, are of mixed nature. At this age there are systemic diseases, which are supported by psychological factors – stresses at work, nervous overstrain.

You need to monitor our psychological and physical health, then problem of impotence will not arise. And if problem already exists, do not be afraid to go to erectile dysfunction specialist.
