ED @ 23yo vs 36yo: Erectile dysfunction is an inability to attain & maintain an erection satisfactory for intercourse. You're asking about a 23yo but listed as a 36yo. In younger men, ED is more commonly due to stress whether from school, work, finances, relationship, family, religion, culture, etc. Tobacco & excess alcohol don't help either. As we age, add chronic illnesses & medications to list especially diabetes
