Can Stomach Gas Cause Erectile Dysfunction?
Is there a link between stomach gas and erectile dysfunction?
There is no direct link between abdominal gas and ED.
However, if the abdominal gas is a symptom of Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) this is a different story.
Decreased sexual function and ED are increased in men with active IBD (compared with men who do not have IBD or whose IBD is in remission).
Moreover, depression and anxiety are common in patients with IBD, and depression, in particular, is one of the greatest independent risk factors for sexual dysfunction.
