Abstract

Purpose of Review

Currently, there is no literature assessing for a potential relationship between the gut microbiome and men’s sexual health. The purpose of this paper is to review the literature on the gut microbiome and its effect on human health, in healthy and diseased states. We also aim to review the literature on men’s sexual health and then extrapolate a potential relationship between the gut microbiome and sexual health diseases.

Recent Findings

Many studies have suggested a correlation between the gut microbiome and components of the metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and inflammation. Men’s sexual health diseases, such as erectile dysfunction and hypogonadism, have also been associated with components of the metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease.

Summary

Due to the bidirectional relationships seen between the gut microbiome and men’s sexual health, with the metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and inflammation, it is highly likely that an association between men’s sexual health and the gut microbiome exists also. Future studies should begin looking at this potential relationship with the aim of developing gut microbiome targeted diagnostic and therapeutic tools for the treatment of men’s sexual health diseases.
