Modern man is drinking too much pain medication! Hence many troubles. And the dependence of popular painkillers cause, and spoil the stomach, and liver overload. And now a new problem: scientists have found a direct correlation between the use of men painkillers and reduced potency.

A recent study conducted by a doctor of urology Joseph Gleason. Were surveyed about 81,000 men aged 45 to 69 years. And found that those who regularly take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) much more often complain of decreased sexual performance. And what’s more, 38% more likely to have a diagnosis “erectile dysfunction” in comparison with those medications do not drink or drink rarely. In the group of NSAIDs include paracetamol, ibuprofen, diclofenac, acetylsalicylic acid.

According to Dr. Gleason, these drugs can block the production of hormones responsible for erections, Reuters reports.

Of those volunteers who drank the tablets constantly, 64% reported complete absence of erection. Of those who took painkillers from time to time, on his manhood complained, 36% of men.

Specialist medical center Duke University urologist Brant Inman calls male genitalia “thermometer”, which signals the presence of atherosclerosis. Indeed, the arteries in the penis are smaller than those that supply blood to the heart. In this regard, before they can be blocked. Narrowed arteries interfere with the normal bloodstream, which is responsible for erection.

THE OPINION OF A SPECIALIST

Evgenie Tchebotaryov, the urologist, andrologist (specialist in male health):

Yes some medications can actually reduce the erection. It is as if their side effect. These include some heart drugs, antihypertensive, that is, lowering blood pressure, diuretics (diuretics), strong antispasmodic, which relaxes vascular tone. But this is a temporary phenomenon. Once you stop these medicines to take, problems with erection should disappear. Also if you see a connection between the decline in potency and medication, you must immediately tell the doctor. Now a large Arsenal of tools, it is likely that it will be possible to treat the same hypertension you choose the product that will not give you problems in sexual life.

And the relationship of pain with erektilnoy dysfunction, I think, is not so much a failure of hormonal balance, as the fact that people didn’t just lean on these drugs. They drink FROM the PAIN, it means that something hurts. Prostatitis, for example, adenoma, neuralgia, sciatica, narrowing of the carotid arteries (a very common cause of headaches, especially in men), intervertebral hernia? But who knows what.

And our sexual function is very sensitive to pain. And if they are chronic, invariably occurs violation of potency. So you need to look for the cause of the pain, fix it, then man’s strength will be fine.
