Potency disorder

Smoking and potency

Smoking not only drastically affects health, but also contributes to the reduction of libido. Among the most common causes of impotence are diseases such as lipid disorders, diabetes, stimulants including smoking and unhealthy diet or lack of exercise. The scale of the impotence problem is extremely high, and smoking makes it worse.

It is believed that around 115 000 men between the ages of 30 and 49 suffer from impotence directly linked to smoking. The results of these tests should be read with the eye frozen, as this number is probably underestimated due to the lack of consideration of impotence in former smokers. Smoking tobacco with toxic substances contributes to the deterioration of the respiratory and circulatory systems. Then the skin ageing processes are accelerated.

Smoking lowers libido?

Nicotine contained in tobacco is absorbed directly into the mouth and quickly penetrates the brain. On average, about 1-3 mg of nicotine is absorbed into the smoker's body during a cigarette smoke. This data will certainly look different if you burn a cigar. Small doses of nicotine decrease the activity of the autonomic system of peripheral sensory receptors and ejection of catecholamines from adrenal glands. As a result, numerous smooth muscle disorders, including blood vessels, occur.

Smoking reduces sexual desire because it leads to the contraction of blood vessels, which weaken the blood flow to the reproductive organs. The consequence is impotence. Correct erection is the responsibility of a properly functioning circulatory system. Smokers can see specific abnormalities associated with the harmful effects of tarry substances contained in tobacco.

Effects of tobacco smoke

Tobacco smoke is responsible for..:

  • Too low a blood pressure in the blood vessels, which is caused by the violation of the vascular endothelium by the smoke components. This epithelium does not produce enough nitric oxide, which is responsible for the expansion of blood vessels during erection. The damage to this epithelium occurs when tobacco is regularly burned.
  • Incorrect supply of arterial blood, which results from stimulation of the autonomic or nervous system
  • Intensive contraction of blood vessels within the penis
  • Blood flow, which is caused by the valve mechanism, is damaged by nicotine in the bloodstream.
  • Increase in fibrinogen concentration, which is responsible for the increase in aggregation ability, i.e. the ability to create thromboses in small vessels
