Welcome Anonymous and thanks for your post.

Researchers have found that nen who've been diagnosed with hemmorrhoids are more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction, especially if they are less than 40 years old. An article published in  the International Journal of Andrology stated there are are several potential explanations for this and that " the localized swelling of the varicose veins around the deep perineum may induce local irritation and erectile disorders."

If this is a concern of yours, or that of a loved one, please seek support from a medical provider.
