Doctor

A:   Erectile dysfunction may be caused by a number of factors. The most common in young adults is psychological. Stress, anxiety, performance anxiety, certain drugs like SSRIs, obesity, smoking, surgery to the pelvic area are all known to cause erectile dysfunction.
The treatment is usually psychotheraphy and talking to the partner about all the fears and concerns. If this doesn not help, then he needs to be evaluated further for any physical problem leading to erectile dysfunction.
