Viagra use causes infertility, says study; statins interfere with sex hormones

The irony is hard to miss: men who take Viagra may be shooting blanks according to new research conducted at Queen's University in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Viagra, it seems, causes sperm cells to premature release digestive enzymes that normally break down the wall of the egg. As a result, sperm from men who take Viagra can no longer fertilize eggs as effectively.

In the United States and around the world, men who suffer from obvious nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances caused by statin drugs, and an alarming lack of physical exercise are increasingly turning to Viagra to restore their youthful sexual performance. But I've got news for all Viagra fans: healthy men keep it up well into their 70's and 80's without Viagra. If you're drooping at age 40, you are suffering from some rather serious health problems, and prescription drugs are probably part of the problem. Taking statins, for example, interferes with your body's ability to create cholesterol. And cholesterol is the raw ingredient out of which sex hormones are manufactured. By taking statins, you're effectively blocking your sex hormones and practically guaranteeing you'll stay limp!

Lack of physical fitness is another big factor: men who exercise regularly (and especially those who engage in strength training) rarely have performance problems. That's because exercise generates natural hormones that keep you youthful and able.

To anyone who thinks they need Viagra, I have alternative advice: you need to change your diet, get off prescription drugs, and start strength training. Don't take one drug (Viagra) to treat the problems caused by another drug (statins). Instead, get back to the fudamentals of good health (nutrition and fitness) to restore the performance you had when you were in your 20's.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
