Erectile Dysfunction and Migraine Headaches
Apr 9, 2012
For many men who have erectile dysfunction, their inability to get an erection may not be the only reason they use the excuse “Not tonight, honey.” A new study from Taiwan reveals that men who have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction are 63% more likely to also get a diagnosis of migraine than men without erection problems.
Only about 5% of men experience migraine, according to the Migraine Trust, while the incidence of erectile dysfunction is higher and depends on age, affecting about 5% of men younger than 40 and between 15% and 25% of those 65 and older. This new study is believed to be the first to show a relationship between migraine and impotence.
