Hyperthyroidism in men is also often paired with premature ejaculation, and hypothyroidism with delayed ejaculation.
Other processes involved in getting and maintaining an erection have been linked to thyroid hormone problems, including interference with the hormones that regulate production of testosterone (the main male sex hormone) and weakened production of molecules that regulate blood vessel function in the penis.
Thyroid hormones certainly aren’t the only cause of erectile dysfunction, low sex drive and ejaculation issues, so if you’re having issues in the bedroom, it doesn’t mean that you definitely have a thyroid problem.
To get to the root of what may be causing sexual dysfunction, it’s important to have an awareness around some of the associated conditions.
