Bad lover will give out ,,, gums
It turns out that the reasons for male failures “on the love field” may be such “third-party” factors, which it seems to be simply impossible to guess. For example, inflammation of the gums, the fight against baldness. And by the way – don Juan need to run a lot and it is contraindicated to ride a bicycle. Why? Readers MedPulse tells sex therapist-psychotherapist Leonid Takchenkovsky.
A ride on the bicycle
In fact, dependence on horseback riding and impotence was revealed as early as the 9th century BC. Then this male affliction suffered riders dressed in heavy armor.
Today, a similar problem is experienced by those who decide to change to a bicycle. Research results show that 4% of men pedaling for at least 3 hours a week have moderate or severe impotence, unlike their peers who are keen on running.
The fact is that when you are in a bicycle saddle, the arteries and blood vessels that carry blood to the penis are compressed under the weight of your weight. Over time, their damage is possible, leading to a decrease in blood flow to the penis and, in the future, the risk of developing erectile dysfunction.

It would seem that what could be in common between the condition of the gums and the penis? But studies confirm a strong link between periodontitis and male sexual weakness. Chronic inflammation of the gums indicates a weakened human immunity, provokes cardiovascular disease (by the way, another ED factor). The mechanism of the influence of periodontitis on men’s health has not been fully studied, but scientists suggest that gum disease may be a visible consequence of the general problem of blood flow obstruction. Since an erection of the penis is caused by filling it with blood, the slightest narrowing of the diameter of the arteries affects the erection not for the better.
Your girlfriend’s friendship with your friends
Psychological factors play a crucial role in sexual activity: without the “work” of the brain, hardly anything can happen in bed. A new study published in the American Journal of Sociology plunged bewilderment and light shock of specialists: if your girlfriend communicates with your friends for a long time and a lot, it can lead to ED!
More than 3,000 men took part in this unusual study: the age of the respondents is from 57 to 85 years. It turned out that those whose wives were “companionable” and often participated in common activities with their husband’s friends were 92% more likely to experience “failures” in obtaining or maintaining an erection at the “working” level.
According to researchers, this anomaly may be a consequence of the subjective concept of “masculinity” that “blurs” gender differences: treating your own wife as a “bosom buddy in a skirt,” one of your old friends, is unromantic and can lead to problems during sex .
Male pattern baldness
Some drugs used for baldness can reduce libido in men. Side effects of taking them are erectile dysfunction. The drugs reduce the amount of the male hormone dihydrotestosterone circulating in the blood, thereby slowing down the process of hair loss. But at the same time, the suppression of the function of the body that produces this male sex hormone (dihydrotestosterone) blunts the sex drive. Such dangerous medicinal substances for male erection include finasteride and dutasteride. Doctors advise using drugs based on minoxidil that are less dangerous for male potency and do not have such devastating effects against baldness.
