Viagra May Harm Sperm And Reduce Fertility - A Study Report

ViagraA new study has suggested that ‘Viagra’ may be good for boosting a man’s sex life, but it may also damage sperm and fertility rate.

The British study discovered that young men who take Viagra could be destroying their abilities to have families.

Dr. David Glenn, a consultant gynecologist at Queen's University Belfast, carried out two experimentations on Viagra, and the results will be issued in the journal ‘Fertility and Sterility’.

“Viagra has become a widely used recreational drug. It is mixed with cocaine, for example, and is sold in clubs. Our work leaves open the possibility that there could be a cumulative effect from taking Viagra, however, which could pose serious fertility problems in life,” Dr. Glenn said.

Initially, Glenn and his research group checked sperm samples with weak solutions of Viagra to take off the level determined in the blood of a man who has consumed a single tablet.

The report said that the sperm exposed to the drug seemed more alive than untreated sperm. But the Viagra also appeared to harm the outgrowth, a cap-like structure that creates enzymes to help penetrate the egg.

The second trial founded that mice given Viagra produced 40% less embryos as compared to other mice.

Dr. Glenn stated, “Essentially the acrosome breaks open too early in sperm that has been exposed to Viagra. The sperm cannot get into the egg and so it is not fertilized.”
