There is adequate evidence linking smoking to impotence or ED so sometimes something like smoking can really affect your sexual performance in the bedroom. New research has been adding to the evidence that smoking may be a major cause of erectile dysfunction. Both smoking and erectile dysfunction have often been associated with build up in the heart walls. This can cause many problems in the body including erectile dysfunction. Actually men who smoked more than one pack of cigarettes per day were at a 60 higher risk or developing erectile dysfunction in comparison to men that never smoked. 15 of the past and present smokers have experienced erectile dysfunction. Men who used to smoke or that currently smoke are about 30 more likely to suffer from impotence where as men that never smoked only had a 12 erection problems. There is indeed a link between impotence and smoking. Smoking can lead to a male eventually needing to be treated for erectile dysfunction and taking a drug such as Viagra.
Your doctor should be aware of anything that you are taking or doing while on Viagra, including smoking. Caffeine, alcohol, the nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the function of many medications. Headaches and dizziness are a couple of the side effects that result from taking Viagra but often when men smoke too, the headaches and the dizziness can be much more painful and last longer. Look at it this way for a minute, if smoking can cause or at least contribute to erectile dysfunction and you are taking a medication to treat the erectile dysfunction, then why smoke?
Another side effect from taking Viagra is stomach upset but it is also proven that the ill effects of smoking can also affect the digestive system. This very well could be the cause of the erectile dysfunction. The bad news is that quitting will not stop any erectile dysfunction because once the damage is done it is too late but it can contribute to some improvement and also help the Viagra to work better. Since everybody is different it may improve or even may not improve.
It is always a great and healthy idea to quit smoking but quitting is always a better idea if you are taking a medication and your smoking is a very real cause of why your medication is not working. Obviously if you put forth the efforts to treat your erectile dysfunction and find out that it is not working properly or maybe even at all because of your smoking then it is likely time that you examine what is going on and make an educated decision.
