What is a normal amount of erectile dysfunction for a guy in his 30s?
Well, all things considered, it's not really "normal" for a guy in his 30s to have ED. I'm sure at some point you gentlemen might have heard the expression, "It happens to every guy!" And true, it does, but typically not THAT often in your 30s.
"Men in their 30s do not generally experience ED, unless it's situational -- related to stress, anxiety, or past trauma," says Dr. Ian Kerner, licensed psychotherapist and nationally recognized sexuality counselor.
"If a man in his 30s is experiencing ED and it’s not situational, it could be a side effect of medication, or an indication that something else might be going on in terms of health. For example, men with heart disease often show erectile disorder as one of the first symptoms. Some men that over-masturbate may also experience situational erectile disorder. Lifestyle also plays a factor: smoking, drinking, diet, exercise. Of the men I see in practice who have ED, about one in five are in their 30s and experiencing situational ED."
