Are you a Male that has recently been diagnosed with infertility? A recent study demonstrates Ibuprofens link to Infertility in men. The study was completed by the PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America), where they found that young men that took large, frequent doses of Ibuprofen developed infertility. Many Americans use Ibuprofen for common symptoms such as fevers, menstrual cramps, headaches, and anything else that causes inflammation or pain. The properties of this deceitful little OTC (Over the Counter) pill are referred to as “Anti-androgenic”, meaning that the ingredients used to develop this drug interferes with male hormone production. Ibuprofen is also an anti-inflammatory but it is technically classified as an NSAID (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). NSAID’S, have also been noted to cause an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes which not only means that it is making men infertile, but it is risking their lives as well.

Ibuprofen has also been proven to affect pregnant woman giving birth to male children. In experiments conducted by the National Institute of Health, they found that woman that took Ibuprofen while they were pregnant, affected male babies’ testicles. Which due to the anti-androgenic attributes of the OTC drug, can affect the child’s adolescence and adulthood.
