Regardless of where you are when the technology is heating up your groin, you could be doing damage to privates—including erectile dysfunction and harming your sperm development, production, and count.
If you can’t use a desk
For men who need to use their laptops on the train, in bed or somewhere else where a table isn’t available, there are some things you can do to prevent the heat from potentially causing erectile dysfunction.
Even placing a pillow under your laptop can still generate enough heat to possibly cause damage, especially if your technology is held in this position for hours at a time. But you can purchase a portable laptop desk and, for extra precaution, laptop legs or a laptop cooling stand, which go underneath your laptop to raise it off the surface.
If your laptop is already causing erectile dysfunction
If you suspect that your laptop is already causing erectile dysfunction, there is something you can do to get your sex life back.
First, make an appointment with your doctor. Sure, it may be embarrassing to talk about erectile dysfunction, but a medical provider can give you a prescription for one of the top erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra. Viagra has been found to be effective for most men with erectile dysfunction.
In addition, a physical is a good idea because there may be another cause of your erectile dysfunction other than your laptop’s heat. Erectile dysfunction is often a symptom of another issue, such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes. The good news is, the sooner you discover any health issues, the better your chances of treating it with success—and avoiding more permanent erectile dysfunction.
