  • Male infertility among many side effects linked to ibuprofen- study

BLOKES who regularly take ibuprofen may be putting their fertility at risk, a study claims. In the new study, researchers found that prolonged, high-dosage use of ibuprofen may cause changes to levels of so-called "luteinizing hormones", which induce the testicles to produce testosterone.

According to Dr. Bernard Jégou, coauthor of the study and director of the Institute of Research in Environmental and Occupational Health in France, it is highly likely the effects of taking ibuprofen will be reversible for the 14 men in the study who experienced hormone disruptions.

Within 14 days, the men taking the ibuprofen developed the hormonal condition linked with lower fertility.

This study also looked at a couple of other hormones produced by the testes and found that they, too, were reduced by ibuprofen.

"Ibuprofen appears to be the preferred pharmaceutical analgesic for long-term chronic pain and arthritis", the research team is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. No doubt, more research will be conducted to make a more solid conclusion with regards to the effects of the common drug and what people should do about it.

In addition to producing sperm, the testicles secrete testosterone, the primary male sex hormone.

Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug and is taken by athletes both to prevent and treat pain.

Jégou said, in these men these hormonal imbalances would be reversible as it was given for a short period of time.

In a shocking study, ibuprofen has been proven to have severe negative impact on male fertility especially on their testicles.

In the current study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Danish and French scientists carried out a series of trials to see how ibuprofen affects adults.

The new study has given major information about lower fertility in males.

Dr Richard Quinton, Senior Lecturer in Endocrinology at Newcastle University, and member of the Society for Endocrinology, said: 'In women pregnant with male foetuses, there are already data suggesting a potential long term effect on testicular function of the offspring of regular paracetamol taken during pregnancy.

"But no direct effect on fertility was shown, but the results of this initial study suggest that it warrants further investigation".

The study of 31 male participants found the administration of ibuprofen reduced production of testosterone by almost a quarter in about six weeks - resulting in compensated hypogonadism.
