Men’s biggest bedroom worry, erectile dysfunction (ED) is now affecting the younger generation in Malaysia. ED is a health problem where an individual can’t maintain his erection during sexual intercourse. It can also be a sign of a more serious health condition in the future.

The head of the Malaysian Urological Association, Dr Selva Lingam told FMT that,

“The trend is definitely increasing. We’re looking at those in their forties now, coming and reporting of erectile dysfunction.”

He elaborated that five years ago, ED was more common in 60 0r 70-year-old men and the rising number of ED cases now are caused by their smoking habits, unhealthy eating habits, unhealthy sexual practices as well as not exercises.

Dr Selva also said that,

“If men in their forties come in for ED, there is evidence to show that you can potentially develop cardiovascular diseases in your fifties.” 

This was cited from a research done by Mayo Clinic in the US which has proven that younger men who have ED are highly likely to get cardiovascular diseases when they are in their fifties because both ED and cardiovascular diseases share similar causes and one of them is the blood vessels being blocked.

However, Dr Selva also did not deny the fact that the increase in the number of ED cases could be due to the men being more open to talking about the problem that they are facing. He added,

“Another reason could be because they now know that there are treatments available for ED, so they are more open to seeing a doctor.”

Dr Selva strongly warned against the use of alternative and traditional remedies to treat ED as it is unclear what ingredients go into these products. Some might cause long-term medical effects.

To men out there, if you are experiencing any form of erectile dysfunction, do visit a doctor to get the right advice and treatment. It is best to deal with it early on before it develops into something more dangerous like heart disease.
