Overweight and Obese Men with Erectile Dysfunction, What to Do?

Obesity and Erectile Dysfunction

Obesity is one of the faster-growing epidemics society facing today. And every day, we learn something terrible about obesity, yet it is growing at an alarming rate. Well, one thing more to chalk up to obesity, erectile dysfunction.

Obese and No Erection

Not only is ED more common in obese men than men in good shape, but their overall sexual health is also at risk. Studies at the Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale have found other startling issues in the obese population. There needs to be more researched on this topic to know more, but the preliminary studies are eye-opening.

The French studied over 12,000 men and women, ranging from average weight to obese weight, ages 18 to 69, all living in France.

Here are some of the higher points that professors have documented:

  1. Body Mass Index (BMI) had no bearing on sexual function in women
  2. Sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) were about the same between normal-weight women and obese women
  3. Obese women were less likely to seek out advice about contraceptive methods than normal-weight women
  4. 70% of obese women were less likely to use contraceptives and eight times less conceivable to use other means of less effective practices like pulling out.
  5. Even though obese women were 30% less likely to have sexual intercourse, they were four times higher at unplanned pregnancies than normal-weight women.
  6. Meeting a partner online was five times greater for obese women than normal-weight women, and that the partner they met would also be obese.

The more prevalent outcome for obese men:

  1. The under the age of 30 obese men were more likely in the past five years to have contracted an STD (sexually transmitted disease)
  2. Age 30 to 49 of the obese men in most cases did not use a condom
  3. Sexual partners do not come easy for obese men as they were 70% less likely to have one
  4. And obese men were two and a half times more likely to struggle with erectile dysfunction.
  5. Obese men were more likely to use ED medications. The most common ones are Cialis than Viagra.
  6. Researchers included in their conclusion that it would seem the obesity problem is a snowball effect.
