Perspectives of public health generally ignore culture-bound sexual health concerns, such as semen loss, and primarily attempt to eradicate sexually transmitted infections STIsincluding human immunodeficiency virus HIV.

This double-blind, randomized, four-period, two-way crossover study was conducted to evaluate the acute effects of oral sildenafil mg single dose on sperm motility, count, density, morphology and vitality as well as ejaculate volume and viscosity in healthy male subjects. The concentrations of sildenafil and its primary circulating metabolite UK, were measured in ejaculate and compared with those in plasma. The study also included assessments of safety and tolerability.
