How common is erectile dysfunction at age 30?
While the incidence of erectile dysfunction among men in their 30s is still very low, it does occur and most often is more psychological than physiological in origin. However, men in their late 30s who have neglected their overall health may begin to experience ED that is linked to their unhealthy lifestyles.
In its overview on the incidence of ED across all age groups, the National Institutes of Health estimates that only 5 percent of men in their 30s are experiencing a total inability to achieve and maintain an erection strong enough for intercourse.
Among the factors most often associated with ED in younger men, EverydayHealth.com cited performance jitters, depression, stress associated with putting on a condom, too much booze, drug abuse, and obesity.
Of condom-related stress, EverdayHealth.com cited a study among 234 young males that was conducted by Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. It found that 25 percent of these young men lost their erections while putting on a condom.
