The results of a new study published in the International Journal of Clinical Practice reveal that men with injury are less productive at work than those without.

The researchers based on the study explained that these affected men may be absent more from work, and may suffer from health and psychological problems that impede between them and their professional life.

The researchers reported that erectile dysfunction is a constant worry and concern for sufferers, which affects their life course, including work.

This defines erectile dysfunction as a problem that affects men and makes it difficult for them to achieve an erection, or the erection is incomplete, or it may not occur at all, which may affect the life partner.

The infection is accompanied by some different symptoms and complications, the most important of which are:

  • stress and anxiety
  • Decreased blood flow to the penis
  • heart problems;

Erectile dysfunction becomes more common as men age, and the risk increases significantly after around age 70.

To reach these results, the researchers targeted a number of men aged between 40-70 years from different countries, namely Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Britain and America, and found the following results:

  • 49.7% of men reported having erectile dysfunction, and the highest percentage was in Italy
  • 25% of infected men confirmed that they suffer from low productivity at work
  • Men with erectile dysfunction were nearly twice as likely to stay at home as those who did not
  • The circulatory health of affected men was lower compared to those without.

The researchers emphasized that this problem is global and is not limited to these countries only.
