Pain meds cause ED in men

Men who regularly take pain relievers such as ibuprofen and aspirin may be at increased risk for erectile dysfunction, new research suggests. Men who use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) three times a day for more than three months are at a 22% increased risk of erectile dysfunction, according to a study in Journal of Urology. Regular users were about 2.4 times more likely to have erectile dysfunction than men who didn't use those drugs regularly or at all.
