A new study has revealed that erectile dysfunction is common in men with newly diagnosed inflammatory bowel disease.
The study, that was done at University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, analyzed 69 men with inflammatory bowel disease.
The men had an average age of 43.3 years when the study stared, and were followed up over 2 years.
What was the correlation?
It turned out 94% of the men (all of which had inflammatory bowel disease) had erectile dysfunction.

In addition, older age and lower physical and mental component summary scores were independently associated with ED.
Should you have inflammatory bowel disease and you also struggle with ED, you now know that it is quite possible that inflammatory bowel disease is the reason.
