Can a supplement be dangerous and cause Erectile dysfunction (ED)

Hello, I’m a 21year old male, and a few months back i took a “sex” pill which promised to increase stamina for a week. It worked, and i took it about 2 more times, but since then i have had trouble keeping an erection, as well as recovering after completion. I will attach a picture of the ingredients in the sex pill, please help. I have never had an issue with this prior to after taking this pill.

Hello. Most of the ingredients in this supplement are considered to be safe except YOHIMBE which is a prescription drug in certain jurisdictions and needs to be used with care. Yohimbe however is used to treat ED and should not cause ED. In my opinion, you have become accustomed to the effect of this supplement and you need to readjust to not using it. Give it some time and everything should come back to normal. Regards

Supplements may be natural but not always safe. Manufacturers and sellers do not need to provide clinical results for their products nor do they need to provide proof their products are safe nor that they contain exactly what they claim to contain. So user beware. At your age, any problem you may be encountering is probably due to psychological reasons rather than physical ones….and quite temporary.
