Sexual enhancement drug can cause heart diseases – Gynaecologist

    Published By:

    A gynaecologist, Dr Ayodele Ademola has urged people with erection and potency issues to seek medical attention instead of using sexual enhancement drugs.

    Ademola said the usage of sex enhancement drugs could cause cardiovascular diseases like hypertension, heart failure and other related diseases.

    The consultant gynaecologist disclosed this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Monday.

    The Medical Director, StrongTower Hospital and Advanced Fertility Centre, spoke in commemoration of the 2023 World Sexual Health Day (WSHD) with the theme: “Consent”.

    Dr Ademola said: “There are many instances where people who used sex enhancement drugs end up losing their lives.

    I have had a situation where two elderly couple who took sex enhancement drug simultaneously had heart attack and died.

    Also, a young man of about 45 years of age, who took an overdose tramadol with the aim to enhance his sex performance, died in the course of having sexual intercourse.

    “If anyone has potency problem, it is advisable that such person seek medical attention rather than use enhancement drug. This is because it has many underlying side effects which may result to loss of life.”

    He advised that people with erection and potency problem should consult their doctor for proper medical treatment.

    The expert said those with high blood pressure, diabetic and aged people were more likely to use sex enhancement drugs, he advised they should entirely abstain from using it because they might die in the process.

    “Some people take excessive amount of drugs in order to enhance sexual performance but most of the drugs sometimes are not specifically made for potency improvement.”

    He listed some health implications of over-the-counter male enhancement drugs as; damage to the urethra, permanent and difficulty maintaining an erection, permanent problem with urination, penis “fractures” causing bleeding and requiring surgery as well as drop in blood pressure.

    According to NAN, sex enhancement drugs, also known as Erectile Dysfunction Medication, are majorly patronised and used by men more than women.
