Erectile dysfunction (ED) is likely to be the most complex and delicate subject a male patient will have to explore with their doctor, especially if they are in their 20s or 30s. The social shame and awkwardness attached to this disorder will lower one’s self-esteem and make it difficult to initiate a discussion about it.
Many young men with ED may believe that these signs are unfathomable for someone their age. However, about 20% of men in their 20s and 30% of men in their 30s suffer from ED symptoms that are mild to severe.
Fortunately, as primary care doctors, we are well-prepared to have this conversation with our male patients and carefully examine both medical/physical as well as psychological/emotional factors. Patients at City Care Family Practice can make an appointment at any time to address their symptoms, or they can bring it up during their annual physical. The most important thing is for our patients to feel at ease about this with their doctors. Hopefully, the material in this essay will assist you in doing so.
The below are the three aspects of male sexual function:
- Interest in sexual intercourse and an urge to engage in it (libido)
- The desire to get and keep an erection.
- The desire to climax and ejaculate (orgasm)
The most popular form of ED, and the one we see most often at City Care Family Practice, is number two: the failure to get or maintain an erection that is firm and big enough to last until ejaculation. We should also talk about less common issues like low sex desire and premature ejaculation.
The medical explanations of these signs will still be explored and ruled out first during our initial assessment of ED. Diabetes, cardiovascular and renal disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and low testosterone are all common medical or physical causes in older men (over 40). Care for ED is directed toward directly treating these medical problems first for these reasons.
Obesity, substance abuse, tobacco smoking, drug side effects, neurological illness, Peyronie’s disease (abnormal penile curvature), and penile injury are all important medical or physical triggers for men in their 20s and 30s. We will then help you devise a plan to manage your ED symptoms by working on healthier health choices based on the results of this medical assessment.
Finally, ED signs in men in their 20s and 30s are most often caused by psychological or emotional factors that manifest as performance anxiety. As previously said, the most prevalent type of ED is difficulty achieving and sustaining an erection, which may occur during oral, vaginal, or anal intercourse with another person and may or may not be associated with self-masturbation. This is normally the first sign that psychological/emotional issues are at the root of the symptoms.
Having a new mate, an uptick in daily life stressors, and undiagnosed and/or unresolved anxiety and depression are all factors that contribute to performance anxiety during sex. The doctors at City Care Family Practice will help you get started on your anxiety and/or depression therapy. Developing proper coping strategies, enlisting the assistance of friends and relatives, consulting a doctor, and taking drugs will all aid in the treatment of these disorders and, finally, ED.
We will also explore your self-masturbation and pornography viewing habits in depth, as well as go through proper Kegel exercises, to better relieve ED symptoms. If necessary, we can also administer drugs (such as Filagra and Sildalist) to relieve ED symptoms. Other options include hormone replacement therapy, vacuum erection machines, and penile implants (all of which can be performed under the supervision of a urologist). Sometime Tadarise 20 or Tadalista 60 mg may also be used.
We will help you conquer the obstacles that erectile dysfunction poses to your sex life if you have persistence in seeking the medicine that works for you.
