Men on ED Drugs Get More STDs

Sexually Transmitted Diseases Fairly Rare in Older Men, but Men Using Erectile Dysfunction Drugs at Higher Risk, Study Finds

Safe Sex at Every Age

In an accompanying editorial, Thomas Fekete, MD, section chief of infectious diseases at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, writes that “this study serves as a reminder that sex after age 40 years isn’t necessarily safe.”

Fekete also noted the limitations of using insurance data to capture what is happening clinically. “The study is powerful, but not elegant,” he writes. “The study could not account for the participants’ frequency of sexual encounters, sexual practices, or the number or sex of their partners. Having this kind of information from a large general population would have great value."
