Men With Condom-Associated Erection Problems May Have Issues Without Condoms
SASSM Conference to be Held in Bangladesh
Young men who have condom-associated erection problems (CAEPs) often have erection issues when not using condoms, according to new research in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
American and British researchers collected data from 479 men between the ages of 18 and 24. About 14% of the participants had CAEPs when putting on a condom. Sixteen percent had trouble with condoms during intercourse. Around 32% experienced CAEPs in both situations.
Men with CAEPs were more likely to have similar problems when not using condoms. They were also more likely to have mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.
Healthcare providers may keep these results in mind when working with younger men. The authors added that 37% of the men who used condoms were never taught how to use them correctly.
