INTRODUCTION Sexual dysfunction is one of the major secondary complications in the diabetic. Mucuna pruriens, a leguminous plant identified for its antidiabetic, aphrodisiac, and improving fertility properties, has been the choice of Indian traditional medicine. AIM Objective of the present study was to analyze the efficacy of M. pruriens on male sexual behavior and sperm parameters in long-term hyperglycemic male rats. METHODS Male albino rats were divided as group I control, group II… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effect of Mucuna pruriens (Linn.) on oxidative stress-induced structural alteration of corpus cavernosum in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat.
TLDR
The ethanolic extract of M. pruriens seed significantly recovered or protected erectile tissue from the oxidative stress-induced degeneration by its antioxidant potentials and propound to serve mankind by the treatment of diabetes-induced erectile dysfunction.
Beneficial Effects of Ethanolic Seed Extract of Cyperus esculentus on Blood Glucose and Sperm Quality in Alloxan-induced Diabetic Rats
TLDR
C. esculentus seed extract may be beneficial in diabetes mellitus as well as its deleterious effect on sperm quality in alloxan-induced diabetic rats.
Protective effects of Lycium barbarum polysaccharide on male sexual dysfunction and fertility impairments by activating hypothalamic pituitary gonadal axis in streptozotocin-induced type-1 diabetic male mice.
TLDR
Results suggested that LBP can exert functional recovery of male sexual dysfunction and fertility damages induced by diabetes in male mice, which is likely to be mediated through regulating the hypothalamus- pituitary-gonadal axis endocrine activity.
Antidiabetic effect of α-mangostin and its protective role in sexual dysfunction of streptozotocin induced diabetic male rats
TLDR
It may be suggested that α-mangostin showed a protective effect against sexual dysfunction in STZ induced diabetic rats.
Standardized Extract of Costus Afer Ker. Gawl leaves Modulates Reproductive Toxicity Caused by FructoseStreptozotocin Administration in Type-2 Diabetic Rats Model
TLDR
The administration of CAME ameliorated reproductive abnormalities in T2D rat models treated with streptozotocin-fructose administration and reduced the degenerative changes in testes, epididymis and improved pituitary-gonadal axis hormone concentrations.
Seed extract of Thai Mucuna pruriens reduced male reproductive damage in rats induced by chronic stress
TLDR
TMP seed protected against adverse reproductive parameters in CS via improvements of functionally testicular markers and reductions of apoptotic proteins and it is possible to develop the TMP beans as an alternative medicine in treating of male subfertility caused by CS.

Adverse Effects of Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.) on Reproductive Function in Adult Male Rats
TLDR
Ingestion of rosemary by two groups of adult Sprague-Dawley rats at levels of 250 and 500 mg/kg body wt for 63 days was investigated for its effects on fertility, and markedly increased the number of fetal resorptions in female rats impregnated by group 2 males, thereby reducing their fertility.
Effect of Mucuna pruriens on oxidative stress mediated damage in aged rat sperm.
TLDR
Sperm damage in ageing was significantly reduced by quenching ROS, improving antioxidant defence system and mitochondrial function, and present observation indicates the antioxidant enhancing property, free radical quenched ability and spermatogenic efficacy of the M. pruriens.
Aphrodisiac activity of Vanda tessellata (Roxb.) Hook. ex Don extract in male mice.
TLDR
The alcohol extract of V. tessellata flower stimulates the sexual behaviour of male mice and general toxicity, if any, in mice.
Sustained hyperglycemia results in testicular dysfunction and reduced fertility potential in BBWOR diabetic rats.
TLDR
It is indicated that long-term diabetes with sustained hyperglycemia leads to significant testicular dysfunction associated with decreased fertility potential.
Changes in Mating Behavior, Erectile Function, and Nitric Oxide Levels in Penile Corpora Cavernosa in Streptozotocin-Diabetic Rats1
TLDR
The results suggest that the diabetes-induced reduction in corporeal NO levels could be mainly due to the lack of some essential cofactors for NOS activity rather than to changes in the amount of enzyme proteins.
Gonadal dysfunction in the spontaneously diabetic BB rat.
Association of hypogonadism and type II diabetes in men attending an outpatient erectile dysfunction clinic
TLDR
The results show that hypogonadism is frequently associated with type II DM, at least in the 6th decade, and might exacerbate sexual dysfunction by reducing libido and mood and further compromising penile vascular reactivity.
