Erectile dysfunction and COPD.

Erectile Dysfunction & COPD

Living with a chronic disease, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), not only upsets normal daily life, but can also cause a deterioration in libido and sexual intercourse,

Men living with COPD know that it is a treatable disorder and occurs as a result of long-term exposure to harmful particles or gases (mainly cigarette smoke), leading to an increased inflammatory response in the airways. If the disorder has been caused by smoking, giving this up is a priority otherwise there will be a worsening of respiratory function.

A satisfactory erection is one of the main characteristics of a healthy and pleasurable sexual life. Generally, in Europe, about 30% of men aged 40 to 79 years report suffering from Erectile Dysfunction (ED), and the percentage increases as they grow older.

In men suffering from COPD research has shown a much higher rate of ED – roughly between 70% to 90% – a very severe rate leading to dreadful erectile function.

Men with COPD who bite the bullet and give up smoking may find that it takes a while for their libido and sexual function to restore to satisfactory levels as the body repairs itself. This is why we recommend a course of Shockwave therapy combined with EMTT since generally this will accelerate the recovery of their ability to enjoy sexual intercourse again without having to resort to ‘little blue pills’.
