For some reason, many believe that the inability to conceive a child most often happens because of female infertility. This is not true. But today I want to talk about something else. Let us find out, if there is any connection between erectile dysfunction and infertility in men. In addition, I propose to learn what to do if conception is impossible precisely because of impotence. Of course, I mean those cases when a woman is healthy and completely ready for pregnancy.
Erectile dysfunction and infertility in men: What is important for conception?
In fact, the possibility of conception depends not on the quality of erection and duration of sexual intercourse, but on the quality of sperm. Even with a perfect long-lasting erection and exciting sex, the quality of the sperm can be so low that not a single sperm reaches its target, the egg.
Sperm quality gets influenced by many factors, including such as hypothermia, or vice versa, increased testicular temperature, radiation exposure, untreated sexual infections, and even stress.

So, what to do? If you cannot conceive a child for two years or more, in any case, you should contact specialists in the field of reproductive medicine. Doctors should examine both partners and find out the real reason for the failure.
“Some seemingly harmless medicines, including antibiotics and steroid drugs for allergies, can reduce sperm production in men.”

Men suffering from erectile dysfunction and infertility can neither overeat nor starve. The diet should be rich in fresh vegetables and fruits, cereals, fish, meat. Also, you may need to take supplements. In addition, better give up alcohol and smoking. Think of a high-quality family vacation that will help fight stress and get closer.
What if there is a link between erectile dysfunction and infertility?
In rare cases, the inability to conceive is nevertheless due to impotence. Theoretically, you can try artificial conception. However, with severe erectile dysfunction, a man cannot do even this, if you understand what I mean. Most often, in this case, experts advise getting rid of the main problem, that is, erectile dysfunction.
Regardless of the roots of erection difficulties, specialists advise solving the problems with the help of effective medications such as Viagra or analogues. You can deal with the psychological or physiological causes of impotence at the same time.
Do not forget that erectile dysfunction can be caused by hormonal failure or other endocrine diseases. In this case, the link between erectile dysfunction and infertility in men can be direct. So, you have to first cure the underlying disease.
