Ibuprofen May Affect Men's Sexual Health, Study Finds

While the study sample was a relatively small one, the researchers noted that its findings have been independently confirmed from isolated cells, and earlier studies had suggested potential issues with men's sexual health and the drug.

Scientists warn that ibuprofen could be wrecking men's fertility by making their balls shrivel up.

A new joint Danish-French research project has discovered that taking the medicament for only 14 days can cause damage to men's testosterone production, reports DR Nyheder.

While reducing pain signals in the brain, ibuprofen also lowers the male sex hormone testosterone. "The decrease in the free testosterone/LH ratio resulted primarily from the increased LH levels, revealing that testicular responsiveness to gonadotropins likely declined during the ibuprofen exposure", the authors write. Essentially testosterone levels were normal but the men in the ibuprofen group had higher amounts of luteinizing hormone, which stimulates testosterone production. In the wake of this research, they focused their investigation on ibuprofen, which seemed to have the strongest effects. Some took 1,200 milligrams of ibuprofen daily, the maximum limit as directed, over a six-week period, while oOthers took a placebo.

The study suggests that taking ibuprofen in doses common among athletes can lead to a hormonal condition linked to male infertility.

Thanks in part to the three-week break between the semifinals and finals, some of those injured players could see action Saturday. Senior Bryan Schor is 29-3 in his career with the Dukes. "I'm so proud of them". "Offensive line protected really well.

This resulted in hypogonadism, which is associated with infertility and increased risk of cardiovascular diseases like stroke and heart failure. According to a recent study, however, regular consumption of the drug could lead to several side-effects, including male sterility. Long term, it can lead to a more serious condition called overt primary hypogonadism, which is characterized by low testosterone and libido, depressed mood and reduced muscle mass and strength.

As Forbes notes, this is the first study to provide evidence with regards to the negative impact of ibuprofen on testicular physiology.

Compensated hypogonadism is typically found in older men, and it is linked with impaired fertility, according to the study.

If you are concerned about your levels of testosterone and your ibuprofen use, though, it's worth chatting to your GP so you can get checked out and find a way to deal with chronic aches and pains in a healthy way.
