Erectile Dysfunction and Anabolic Steroids.

Erectile Dysfunction & Anabolic Steroids

Sometimes prescribed to help teenage boys with delayed puberty problems, or to older men suffering from losing muscle mass due to certain illnesses, anabolic steroids are synthetically produced drugs that mimic the effects of natural testosterone and are designed to help muscle growth and increase male sex characteristics.

If your GP has prescribed anabolic steroids, they will be safe to take if used as directed.

But Anabolic Steroids (known in the medical profession as anabolic–androgenic steroids (AAS)) are best known as a supplement used by bodybuilders to build muscle and improve their performance, since they can quickly build muscle mass, and decrease body fat. Other men will simply use them to improve their appearance to deal with their poor body image, or from pressure from their partner to “look better”. The problem is that this use is use is usually unsafe and unlicensed and can cause serious health complications.

Unfortunately, steroid use can actually lead to shrunken testicles, reduced sperm count, decreased libido, infertility, and Erectile Dysfunction (ED). The first indications men find of steroid abuse problems include hair loss, breast development, severe acne, and stomach pain. It should also be noted that continued use of AAS can lead to the development of prostate cancer.

How Does Steroid Use Cause Erectile Dysfunction?

Since steroids mimic the effect of creating testosterone naturally, over time the excess testosterone in the body reduces a man’s ability to make his own testosterone. Depending on the frequency of taking them and the time over which they are taken and how much was used this can happen in short term or long term. This is the main reason why ED issues occur in men who use anabolic steroids.

Overcoming ED With Little Blue Pills

Little blue pills can help overcome ED problems and some athletes use them to ‘flush’ steroids from their body. But after a while these pills of whatever type and colour become less effective. To get and maintain an erection blood needs to flow unrestricted through the penis. The therapy we provide at MansMatters treats the problem of restricted blood flow through the penis and allows men to enjoy spontaneous sexual intercourse once more much to the satisfaction of their partner.
