A study done in Taiwan and published in the journal Cephalalgia indicates that men who suffer with migraines may have an increased risk of experiencing erectile dysfunction.
The researchers studied the records of one million patients and intentionally excluded men with conditions that are known to cause erectile dysfunction like diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure.
Interestingly, where one might think that the risk would be highest in older men, the researchers found the highest risk for ED to occur in men with migraines between the ages of 30-39. I find this surprising because this age group of men is usually amongst the lowest percentage-wise for experiencing ED.
This leads one to believe the migraine hypothesis expressed by the Taiwanese researchers and furthermore, it corroborates previous research stating that chronic pain in general, seems to increase the risk of ED.
It would be interesting if future migraine studies looking at medicines that prevent migraines, helped male patients in the study who also had ED.
