Popular Pain Medication Ibuprofen Could Lead To Male Infertility, Study Says

Popular Pain Medication Ibuprofen Could Lead To Male Infertility, Study Says Popular Pain Medication Ibuprofen Could Lead To Male Infertility, Study Says

The research team used 31 male volunteers between the ages of 18-35. The samples showed that applying ibuprofen triggered a dose-dependent drop in the production of testosterone within 48 hours.

To avoid these side-effects, doctors caution against taking Ibuprofen for more longer than ten days in a row, per the FDA's warning.

The decreased ratio of testosterone to LH created a hormonal imbalance called "compensated hypogonadism" in the endocrine system, which regulates and controls hormones.

Taking ibruprofen could negatively affect your sex life, a new study reveals. The study reports that the condition is "associated with adverse reproductive and physical health disorders".

Prior research from the study's lead author also found that boys born to mothers who took ibuprofen during their first trimester of pregnancy may have impaired testicular development, adding weight to the idea that, at least in some scenarios, the drug may have a negative effect on fertility.

Acer to Bring Amazon Alexa to PCs in 2018
As per HP, this PC delivers a powerful computing experience and fantastic audio with the help of Amazon Alexa digital assistant. As of mid-December , Amazon was said to have a roster of an estimated 25,000 Alexa skills, while Cortana was said to be on 230.

Typically seen in older men and smokers, the condition describes when the testes produce an insufficient amount of testosterone. "Taken together, these in vivo data suggest that ibuprofen induced a state of compensated hypogonadism during the trial..." the study states.

This study might be especially troubling for athletes; Bernard Jégou, one of the study's co-authors, told CNN that many athletes take ibuprofen regularly to combat the aches and pains that accompany their sport, and warns that long-term usage like this could do irreversible damage. Some took 1,200 milligrams of ibuprofen - commonly known as Advil or Motrin, among others - every day in two 600 mg doses over a six-week period, while others received a placebo. "We are concerned about it, particularly for healthy people who don't need to take these drugs".

"Therefore, it is also of concern that men. may eventually progress to overt primary hypogonadism, which is characterized by low circulating testosterone and prevalent symptoms including reduced libido, reduced muscle mass and strength, and depressed mood and fatigue".

However, in recent years, ibuprofen in particular has been linked to an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes, meaning we should be more cautious when taking anti-inflammatory drugs.
