Dangers of unprescribed sex enhance drugs - why you should avoid

Avoiding Unprescribed Sex-Enhancing Drugs: A Warning from a Urologist. 

Dr. Rosalind Franklin, a consultant urologist, has issued a warning against the use of sex-enhancing drugs without a doctor's prescription. In an exclusive interview, Dr. Franklin cautioned that using these drugs to engage in marathon sex can lead to numerous health problems, including erectile dysfunction.

Dr. Franklin, seeing an increase in the number of young people taking unprescribed sex-enhancing drugs and engaging in marathon sex. She warns that such activities can even lead to death, particularly for those who are not fit for it and have pre-existing heart disease.

According to Dr. Franklin, taking sex-enhancing drugs can also lead to priapism, an excessive and painful erection of the penis that does not go down, especially when one is taking drugs. This condition can lead to penile fracture and permanent impotence, which can be debilitating.

Dr. Franklin further warns that overdosing on sex-enhancing drugs can be dangerous and come with many risks. She has seen an increasing number of patients with erectile dysfunction due to using such drugs without medical advice or prescription.

"Chances are high that they will have erectile dysfunction. Taking sex-enhancing drugs that are not medically prescribed is not advisable. Nowadays, I see a lot of young people who take sex enhancers, they get priapism," Dr. Franklin says. "This year alone, I have operated on four people who were having sex and their penises refused to come down. The penis becomes long, about 12 inches long, it doesn’t come down at all. You have to operate on them before they can come down."

Dr. Franklin urges caution during sexual intercourse and advises against using sex-enhancing drugs without a doctor's prescription.

Research shows that the reasons for using sex-enhancing drugs are broadly categorised into two: for recreational purposes and for the treatment of erectile dysfunction by a physician's prescription. However, an overwhelming majority of men who use these drugs do so for recreational purposes, according to studies.

Many men buy their sex-enhancement drugs from roadside vendors and over-the-counter vendors, without advice from competent physicians. This practice of using them without a doctor's advice may have long-term health implications for the users, warn researchers.

Dr. Franklin calls on primary care providers to pay more attention to the sexual history of their patients to diagnose and manage erectile dysfunction more frequently. She also advocates for public education and enlightenment by government and advocacy groups to address the problems of ignorance and stigmatisation associated with erectile dysfunction.

In conclusion, it is crucial to avoid using sex-enhancing drugs without medical advice or prescription. While they may offer temporary pleasure, they can cause severe health problems and even lead to permanent impotence. Instead, seek professional help from a doctor for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
