Debunked: The Most Common Myths About ED

Myth #1: ED doesn’t affect young men — While ED is more prominent in men over the age of 40, younger men can also experience ED. Certain conditions like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and other health conditions can raise your risk of developing ED, regardless of age.

Myth #2: ED is only caused by another health condition— ED can be the result of health ailments like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, but it is also caused by depression and anxiety.

Myth #3: Medication does not contribute to ED—If you are experiencing ED, you may want to research if it is one of the side effects of your medication. Speaking with your doctor can help you gain better insight into what factors may contribute to ED. Together, you and your doctor can find an alternative treatment to alleviate your symptoms.

Myth #4: Smoking and tobacco use does not increase your risk of ED—Smoking and tobacco use can lead to restricted blood flow to the penis, which may result in ED. Talk to your doctor about ways to quit.
