    I'm only 23 and yet I started having erectile dysfunction problems a few years ago. Is this normal? Are there other young guys with ED out there like me?

    Hi Clay!


    It's not common for a man as young as you to experience ED, but it does happen. There are a couple articles about ED in young men that you can read to get more information.


    Hardvard Health Publications answered the question of a 20 year old man here.


    You can read more about ED the causes and risks here.


    Dr Harmon answers questions from a young man here that you might be interested in the answers.


    I hope this helps. Let us know how you are doing!

    Ey bro i know what your going through, Im 23 also and have been experiencing this same problem...its pretty frustrating when your girl is ready to go but your unable to maintain an erection.  I think its mainly a psychological issue for me...i ordered some cialis online, hopefully it works Cool

    Yea I have been having a similar problem with ED and Im 24. Ive never had a problem like this at all till about a year ago Id be with someone and all of a sudden I lose or dont get an erection when I should. I think it is 100% mental. Meaning it has to do with your state of mind and confidence. The body and mind are one and one needs the other. Me thinking about the problem would actually stress me and make it happen. I just got so tired of this problem, I stopped caring/stressing and just went with the flow. I had confidence in myself and was mentally in the zone and now I have that problem alooot less. Wrorking out and being confident in yourself and sexually attracted and comfortable with your partner is what makes it.
