There’s another study on dx.doi.org by Nangia AK, Jsensen D . Ibuprofen and hypogonadism.

This recent study that I’m talking about posted on that site, is suggesting modulation of luteinizing hormone signaling within the hypothalamic – pituitary – gonadal axis and downstream transcriptional effects that has been caused by the continuous ibuprofen use. However, still, this study cannot be used to draw absolutely any clinical conclusions in the regards of the effects of using the ibuprofen on the male’s androgenic or reproductive health. Therefore, the andrological effects of its use are still remaining, unfortunately, unclear and would really benefit from some further investigation.

I’ve got to mention that even though the merit of all of this and any work needs to be judged absolutely only on the scientific evidence that is being presented with the critical peer review, there’s the consequence of the media coverage of this study and it is claiming about the potential long term significance of the findings to the nonmedical and even medical community at very large levels which are extremely hard to be ignored.

People need to be more careful because the effect which has created from the self perpetuating and the sensational social and mainstream media coverage and fervour over this study, without a careful review of the evidence that it has contained, it has most likely led to the misrepresentation, as much as we can see, of the findings and the absolute incorrect suggestion which people discussed about that the ibuprofen is affecting male reproductive health and lowers testosterone levels which is absolutely nothing more than just people’s assumptions with high chances of being wrong.

With this being said, the authors of that post did have provided some evidence to this effect and they have highlighted the problem, nevertheless, they might have inadvertently provided some *fuel* to the entire media fire by making such a statement. As for now, talking about the continuous use of the ibuprofen, regardless if about a short term of a chronic use, we still don’t know and it remains unclear if the reproductive health is damaged anyhow.

The determination of the male androgenic and the reproductive health effects of this it is being very commonly used class of medication is still requiring some further close clinical examination and investigation before anyone might clearly answer the question and generally making such an bold statement which can be generalized and quoted out of context form the evidence.
