As one of the most common sexual health problems in Malaysia, affecting 16 to 47% of Malaysian men, erectile dysfunction (ED), is increasingly gaining recognition as a serious medical condition that requires urgent attention and care. While many of the underlying causes of ED could begin developing with age, age itself does not cause ED.

The H4rd Poll, a recent survey conducted among Malaysian men and women between the ages of 25 and 44 years old revealed that ED and sub-optimal erections are becoming common occurrences among younger men in their 20s with key drivers of the condition linked to a high-stress lifestyle, less-than-ideal physical condition and late night lifestyles. This creates an urgent need for initiatives to be put in place to address the rising incidence of ED amongst younger men.
