It's well-established that stress can have a serious impact on a person's sex life. The same is true for erectile functioning. "Stress at home, stress at work, stress in a relationship, all of those things can contribute to erectile dysfunction," says Breyer. Just as stress can affect someone at any age, it can cause erection problems in the young as well as the old. It may even be part of the reason why greater numbers of younger men are complaining of erectile issues. Although many young men turn to drugs to address erectile dysfunction, meditation, yoga, and massage can also be used to treat it because erectile dysfunction is more likely to have a psychological, rather than physical, basis when it occurs in younger men.
