A Family Health Physician Dr. Mrs Abena Tannor has reiterated calls for the general public to refrain from resorting to sexual enhancement drugs otherwise known as libido boosters without medical advice.
The medic expressed worry that the proliferation of these aphrodisiacs on the market poses some veritable health threats to its patronisers.
Speaking to Ultimate News’ Theresah Oppong; she explained that hospitals are recording high number of kidney conditions and a rather suppressed sexual drive through the intake of these drugs.
Dr. Tannor advised persons seeking some help with sexual dysfunction to seek medical diagnosis as the first line of option rather than endanger themselves with any drug on the market.
She further urged people to desist from intake of herbal medicine.
‘There is research to show that these herbal bitters which are being advertised on radio and television sets also have some side effects on the sexual function of couples especially the males, but in actual fact the side effect can also affect their sexual function and lower their sexual drive, and in other cases also can affect their kidneys, renal problems, so it’s not best for people to just embark on drinking of herbal preparations and all others, come to the hospitals, sometimes there may be an underlying conditions like diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol which when managed can help solve all this, sometimes it’s just psychological,’ she entreated.
