Viagra was introduced in 1998 and since then Viagra has been prescribed to approx 15 million men. Yes, it is fact that viagra has some side-effect on male fertility. Viagra is also known as wonder-drug and is impotence drug. This drug has been promoted for its capability to relieve impotence in males, might also have some undesirable spin-off outcome. Based on some researches, it has been found that men who are taking viagra to achieve fatherhood can absolutely reduce their ability to father a child.

Viagra became designed to permit an increase of blood flow to the penis to overcome fertility issues. However, in view that its release it has an increasing number of been used ‘recreationally’, and is also utilized by fertility clinics which will resource patients’ semen production. Viagra is what is known as a ‘phosphodiesterase inhibitor’, a sort of chemical known to affect sperm function, so based on the latest study, it has been proved that this drug has affect on sperm.

The researchers observed that the usage of Viagra speeds up chemical changes inside sperm, rendering them infertile by the point they reach an egg. This chemical change, called the acrosome reaction, normally best takes place whilst a sperm reaches an egg, and is when sperm launch enzymes that break down the outer layer of the egg allowing the sperm head to penetrate it greater easily. However, if the acrosome reaction happens too early, the sperm grow to be ineffective and unable to go into the egg, as they don’t have any digestive enzymes left.

Viagra could harm sperm and reduce fertility, say researchers

Men who take Viagra could put their fertility at risk, experts warned. Researchers say the drug could harm sperm and reduce its ability to fertilize an egg. They claim fertility clinics prescribing Viagra to men could be reducing their chances of fathering a baby.

Gynecologist Dr David Glenn said: “It is worrying that some IVF clinics are using Viagra in order to boost fertility results.

“Couples who go there for treatment are, by definition, already having problems getting pregnant. Viagra may simply be making these worse.

“Giving male partners something that could make the problem worse is scarcely the right approach.” His team bathed human sperm in a Viagra solution to give the same exposure as that seen in the blood of a man after taking a pill.

They found Viagra made sperm more active than if it was not exposed to the drug.
