How Does Alcohol Affects Your Sex Life And Fertility?

Alcohol interferes with your ability to feel sexual stimulation. It does this by interfering with the signals between the brain and the genitals.

Below are some of the ways by which alcohol can affect your s*X life and fertility, according to Healthline.

1. Problems with erections

Alcohol use in excess might make it difficult to achieve or maintain an erection. This is commonly referred to as Erectile dysfunction (ED) .

The brain's signals that instruct the penis to swell with blood are hampered by alcohol.

Alcohol's ability to suppress testosterone production is another reason why it might occur.

2. Problems with Orgasms

Your ability to feel sexual stimulation is hampered by alcohol. It accomplishes this by obstructing the signals traveling from the brain to the genitalia.

Healthline reports that after consuming much alcohol, you might;

i. ejaculate slowly or with difficulty, or both

ii. find it more difficult to experience orgasms.

3. S*x Drive (Libido)

A reduced libido might result from heavy drinking over a prolonged length of time. This is because your testosterone levels drop as a result of consuming much alcohol.
