Can Statins Cause Erectile Dysfunction?


Can taking cholesterol medication result in ED?


ED isn’t a widely reported side effect of statins (cholesterol medication). However few studies found that statins can reduce testosterone levels which is the primary male sex hormone necessary for a healthy erection. On the other hand, a study found that over time, ED actually improved in men who were on statins for high cholesterol.

To date, there is more evidence that statins actually help ED rather than hinder erections, but more research is still needed to establish a decisive link between ED and statins.
