A new study in the UK suggests taking Viagra may effect sperm functionality and lead to infertility.

In their experiments, Dr. David R. J. Glenn and colleagues observed that exposure of cultured sperm to Viagra, compared to no exposure, led to a “premature acrosome reaction.” Acrosomes are structures that cover the head of the sperm and contain a variety of enzymes that help the sperm penetrate the outer membrane of the egg.

“Given that the majority of sperm acrosome react on exposure to (Viagra), the drug may cause significant impairment to their fertilizing potential,” they write.

This is a concern, Glenn and colleagues say, given that Viagra and other like-drugs are widely available on the Internet and are increasingly being used “recreationally” by young healthy men of reproductive age as sexual enhancers — not just by older men who have erectile dysfunction.

So if your using Viagra and want kids, I’de stop. But if youre not interesting in having a young one you can train up to become the next Tiger Woods,  party on fellas! 😉
