Mainly, sexual problems occur in elderly men, but sometimes ED symptoms occur in people at a young age. Erectile dysfunction occurred in a man under the age of 30 might cause severe anxiety.
In older people, various health problems including erectile dysfunction occur much more often than in young people. This is connected with the natural changes that occur in the body during the aging process and the prolonged impact of various negative factors such as:
- bad ecology;
- chronic stress;
- unhealthy habits.
A large number of men over 40 years of age are diagnosed with erectile dysfunction because of the following diseases and conditions:
- cardiovascular diseases;
- microcirculation disorders;
- impaired endothelial function;
- decreased testosterone levels;
- inflammation of the prostate gland.
If a young man is often unable to achieve erection when he tries to have sex, he needs to see a doctor. Erectile dysfunction can greatly complicate relationships with the sexual partner. If ED treatment is not started on time, this problem can be exacerbated.
Sexual health problems most often arise because of a damage to the nervous tissue and insufficient arterial blood supply at a young age. After the cause of erectile dysfunction is clarified through diagnosis, the doctor will prescribe the appropriate treatment.
A prevention of erectile dysfunction for men of any age is a good night’s sleep, avoidance of stressful situations, as well as healthy diet and regular exercise.
If any sexual health problems occur, immediately contact your doctor. Depending on the causes and degree of the disease development, both medical and surgical procedures can be used to treat erectile dysfunction.
Some patients consider different surgical treatment options for erectile dysfunction, when other therapy methods fail. A penile prosthesis is a suitable solution for the resumption of sexual activity for many men.
Anesthesia is required during a urological operation, which may pose a risk to elderly patients with erectile dysfunction. Impaired heart function is often diagnosed in people of advanced age and this fact forces to look for new treatment methods of sexual problems.
