In a previous article on Truelibido, we learned that the pain-killer Ibuprofen can cause erectile dysfunction because one of its common side effect is to lower your testosterone level.
In fact, this is the case not only for Ibuprofen, but for many other pain-killers as well.
However, a new research study has now found that the pain-killer Aspirin may in fact be effective at treating erectile dysfunction.
A study that was published in International Urology and Nephrology, showed that 100 mg/day of Aspirin for 6 weeks was associated with significant improvement in erectile function compared with the results of a placebo group. The study had 184 participants.
The erection function score of the Aspirin group went up from less than 50% success rate to more than 75% at the end of the 6 weeks.
This improvement was seen because Aspirin demonstrated an ability to increase vasodilation (expansion of blood vessels), which again increased blood flow to the penis.
However, nothing in the study referred to potential long-term effect on testosterone of taking Aspirin. It is possible that Aspirin may, similarly to other pain-killers, reduce testosterone in the long-term.
Truelibido does not encourage or support treatment of erectile dysfunction with Aspirin, and I encourage readers to be careful with medications. However, this is an interesting discovery in the research on erectile dysfunction.
