Is ED Common for Young Men?

Q:
Is ED common for young men?

A:
A study in the July 2013 Journal of Sexual Medicine suggests that ED is more common among younger men than previously thought. Researchers found that ED affected 26 percent of adult men under 40. Almost half of these young men suffered from severe ED.

That rate is comparable to what is experienced by older men. Researchers also noted that younger ED patients were more likely than older men with ED to smoke or use illegal drugs.
