Men on Viagra ‘have more STIs’

Men who take impotence drugs like Viagra and Cialis are at a higher risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs) than those who do not.


According to researchers at Harvard University, the rate of infection in men using the medication is almost three times higher than the rate for those not using it.

The study pointed out that it is not the drugs themselves that are making men have less safe sex.

Instead, it suggested that the association between impotency drug use and STIs may have more to do with the types of men using the medication.

Indeed, the higher risk of STIs was present in the years before men started taking the drugs, as well as in the years after.

The publication of the findings follows warnings about the sexual practices of some older people.

Anupam Jena, lead author of the Harvard University study, explained that although younger people have more sexual partners than their older counterparts, they are more likely to practice safe sex.

“Per sexual encounter, the actual safeness of the sex is probably lower among older folks in the sense that they don’t use condoms,” the expert remarked.
