Men Who Take Viagra Are More Likely To Contract STD’s

1


According to recent studies, men who took erectile dysfunction drugs such as viagra were more likely to contract sexually trasmitted diseases, including AIDS.

Dr. Anupam Jena of Harvard Medical School in Boston and colleagues wrote.

“Users of ED (erectile dysfunction) drugs had higher rates of HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis in the 12 months before filling their first ED drug prescription, although only HIV and chlamydia were statistically significant in this period,” Jena’s team wrote.

“At a minimum, use of ED drugs seems to correlate with higher-risk sexual behavior, either in the number or type of sexual encounters.”

The study researched the medical records of approximately 33,968 men who were prescribed at least one ED drug in the past year. The studies concluded that rates of HIV and chlamydia were significantly higher for these men as appose to men who did not take any drugs.

    “Look, just realize that you are at higher risk for STDs, and try to be careful like you used to be 30 years ago.” This is the baby boomer generation! The hippies and free love movement. Very few people used protection and it was the pre HIV generation. THAT IS what they are going back to! The old curmugeons never used a condom before and you want them to wear one now? GOOD LUCK! They didn’t get sex education in school and their knowledge about STDs is practically nil. It may help to have those discussions, but the females are the ones who usually get men to wear them, so there should be more education for women.
