High blood pressure and impotence.

Can hypertension or high blood pressure cause impotence in men?


Expert Answers (1)

Hypertension is found in many men with erectile dysfunction .

ED is also linked to hypertension. About a third of men with high blood pressure will have some level of erectile dysfunction.

However, many hypertension drugs (thiazides or beta-blocking drugs) can actually worsen side effects of sexual dysfunction. Thiazides cause a higher rate of erectile dysfunction than beta-blocking drugs. Another class of drugs called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors however can slightly improve sexual performance.
