Scientists warn that ibuprofen could be wrecking men's fertility by making their balls shrivel up.
Researchers came to this somewhat disturbing conclusion after splitting 31 male test subjects between the ages of 18 and 35 into two groups; they gave one group ibuprofen, and the other group a placebo.
The study shows that it has a negative impact on the testicles of young men, altering their sex hormone production and affecting their reproductive health. In the men receiving ibuprofen, levels of luteinizing hormone were up, and the ratio of testosterone to luteinizing hormone dropped.
The small study, which was published yesterday (Jan. 8) in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that men who took 1,200 milligrams of ibuprofen a day for six weeks developed a hormonal condition that is linked with reproductive problems. LH's job is to stimulate the production of testosterone, so higher levels of LH without corresponding higher levels of testosterone could suggest an issue in the way the body's hormones are functioning.
Erma Z. Drobnis, a University of Missouri, Columbia, professor who specializes in fertility, says this study is important, given how common ibuprofen is, even with such a small sample size. Of course, there is a bright side to this new finding, and that is to limit your intake of ibuprofen.

The researchers also observed other hormonal disruptions at 14 and 44 days of ibuprofen consumption, suggesting wide-ranging consequences of hypogonadism. Compensated hypogonadism typically develops in middle-aged males, yet the heavy dose induced the condition early on.
Jegou agreed that more study is needed to answer a number of questions, including how low doses of ibuprofen affect male hormones and whether long-term effects are reversible, CNN reported.
If you are concerned about your levels of testosterone and your ibuprofen use, though, it's worth chatting to your GP so you can get checked out and find a way to deal with chronic aches and pains in a healthy way.
