Many of us prefer to have alcoholic drinks occasionally particularly in social occasions. It is often suggested that moderate drinking- a couple of drinks a day may not be insidious for any healthy adult.

Erectile Dysfunction

In 1999, it was published in Journal of the American Medical Association which confirmed the fact of moderate consumption of 1 or 2 drinks on a daily basis even lessen risks of cardiovascular diseases and can also reduce chance of getting a stroke. Isn’t it fantastic?

But situation begins to take shape when many of the people drink significantly more than what is regarded as the healthy amount and start to get into serious health issues with regards to their drinking habit. The outcomes of excessive drinking are severe and perhaps can be debilitating as excessive drinking can increase the amount of risks for specific cancers, brain damage, diabetes, hypertension, liver cirrhosis and erectile dysfunction combined with several social problems.

It is actually well known aspect that excessive drinking could potentially cause erectile dysfunction or Male impotence, curtailing young healthy men from accomplishing hard erections and puts brakes on a better sexual life. Various medical studies have been performed on erectile dysfunction and alcohol, which signifies that excessive drinking in men lowers libido to cause testicular atrophy which in lay man terms would mean shrinking of testicles. The decline in male sex hormone and harm to reproductive organs could well be a catalyst for impotency, male infertility, enlarged male breast and reduced facial and body hair. Heavy alcohol consumption can ruin various urological systems in a man, including those linked to sexual production.

Alcohol even in a small amount in some people may cause impairment in judgment, reaction time and coordination. It also jeopardizes work and household accidents, traffic accidents and falls. Alcoholism puts drinkers at a risk of serious clashes with family members, colleagues and friends. The more heavily they drink, the greater the chance for trouble at home, with friends, at work and even with strangers.

Wouldn’t it be great in your case if you try decreasing your drinks for getting hard erection again to enable you to easily satisfy your partner and get healthy sexual life?

    Good to see the damages alcohol can do to our over all health. Honestly I wouldn’t recommend anyone to take alcohol to any reasons whatsoever. It is detriment to the body system except when used or mixed with some medical drugs to dissolves some certain reactive element.
    if anyone has been affected with erectile dysfunction, apart from consulting your medical adviser, losing of weight too has help many men overcome it.

    Without doubt excess alcohol intake reduces erectile function, and the processes are many. Nerve injury, transient central nervous system dysfunction, and likely others we incompletely understand, but I’ve certainly had patients where even 2 drinks can lead to ED.

  18. Batians says

    I think it depends on the percentage of alcohol in a drink, how much you have taken, and the addiction or dependency status. For example, psychological issues are known causes of erectile dysfunction. On the other hand, beer is known to reduce stress, albeit temporarily. In that case, would alcohol not improve the situation?
