How High Blood Pressure Affects Your Men’s Sexual Health and What You Can Do About It

A elderly man checks his blood pressure with a device that attaches to his arm. When our bodies need to work harder to pump our blood, there is usually a problem.

A change in blood pressure could be in the moment, an adrenaline rush that is over quickly. For some people, higher blood pressure was an indicator for being at
higher risk of having a heart attack and other health complications. According to the American Heart Association, High Blood Pressure (also known as HBP or Hypertension) can impact your sex life.

Hypertension or HBP can lead you to experience erectile dysfunction (ED) and a drop in your libido (or sex drive) or sexual interest for both women and men. In this article, we will focus on how high blood pressure impacts men’s sexual health.

High Blood Pressure Can Change Your Health

Keeping your blood pressure within the normal range is important to protect your overall health. As with most things, balance is the key. Hypertension puts extra strain on your heart, your other organs, and the rest of your body. High blood pressure makes your risk for a stroke or heart attack shoot up. Additionally, there can be impacts on your sex life from having high blood pressure.

Wait, How Does High Blood Pressure Affect My Sex Life?

Don’t forget – high blood pressure has an impact on all your body’s organs. Your body also experiences a change in the flow of your blood. Circulation shifts can impact your brain, organs, and your extremities (fingers and toes).

Circulation regularity is also important for the healthy function of your penis. When your blood vessels cannot help your blood flow as smoothly as they should, you may experience problems with your erections, known as erectile dysfunction (ED). ED occurs when you have trouble achieving or maintaining an erection.

Also, a drop in your blood flow can mean you have an imbalance in your hormones. Your blood distributes your hormones throughout your body. Without this distribution, your libido and interest in sex may drop.

Our bodies try to get us back to balance, but sometimes they need extra help. Make sure to eat healthy foods, control your salt intake, exercise for 30 minutes three times per week, and manage your stress.
