Sexual Impotence And Diseased Liver Are They Related?


At first glance, they seem to have no connection. However medicine has shown that it is not, and under a global view of the human being and his health, the different aspects of our body affect each other.

Hepatic health can interfere even in sexual life, with the liver being one of the sickest organs in Chileans and one of the main reasons for medical consultation.

This in general terms, however, there are several aspects that fall outside this definition that are important to mention when having doubts about whether you have this diagnosis:

  • Some men have problems with an erection and who can sometimes have sex, that is, the failure can be sporadic, and therefore they can believe that they do not suffer from any disorder.
  • It is not necessary to have sex to realize that a problem of impotence is born; the diagnosis is possible even in patients who do not have a sexual life.
  • A man may be in an initial stage of infertility but still be able to achieve penetration.
