Older Men More Susceptible to STD’s

The benefits of erectile dysfunction drugs are well- recognized and may be binary as well.

Medical progress over the past 10 years have made it possible for older men to have the equal active sex lives, they were competent of in their youth. Unluckily, with these developments, there have been some arrests in the male populace, over the age of 40.

There is a greater probability among older men to develop sexually transmitted diseases. Normally, STDs are kept back for the younger and more sexually licentious crowds, but the fissure is slowly closing amid the two age groups.

Many couples suffering from erectile dysfunction have benefited from drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. Doctors too readily prescribe men such drugs, if they willingly admit that they have a performance trouble. But these doctors accidentally issue prescriptions to men, who may not in fact need the drugs, but only want them to boost their previously active, high risk social lives.

Researchers evaluated pharmacy data for men over 40, who had received a treatment for an erectile dysfunction drug and the study was published on Tuesday in Annals of Internal Medicine.

An increased rate of STDs, particularly HIV infection was found in men using ED drugs, both in the year prior to and after the use of these drugs.

"Use of this drug does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases e. g., HIV, hepatitis B, gonorrhea, syphilis. Practice ‘safe sex’ such as using latex condoms. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details”.
