How to Use Hydrogen Peroxide for Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

| Modified on Mar 12, 2024
Hydrogen peroxide for erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) commonly affects millions of men worldwide. It is characterized by the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance.1 Various treatments exist, including prescription medications, lifestyle changes, and natural remedies. One method that has been gaining attention recently is using hydrogen peroxide for ED.

This article will delve into how to use hydrogen peroxide for ED, the science behind it, its potential role in treating ED, and the associated risks.

Properties and Functions of Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a pale blue liquid that appears colorless when diluted. As a powerful oxidizer, it can remove electrons from other substances, making it highly reactive. This chemical compound has numerous applications, such as cleaning, disinfecting, and serving as an oxygen source in various chemical reactions.

Hydrogen peroxide works by breaking down into water and oxygen when it comes into contact with enzymes or catalysts. The release of oxygen produces different effects depending on the situation. For example, in wound care, oxygen can help eliminate bacteria and promote healing.

In the context of ED, hydrogen peroxide is thought to improve blood flow to the penis and support erections by increasing oxygen levels in the bloodstream.

The Potential of Hydrogen Peroxide for ED Treatment

The idea of using hydrogen peroxide as a treatment for ED is based on the premise that increasing oxygen levels in the blood could enhance blood flow to the penis. By doing so, hydrogen peroxide may potentially aid men in achieving and maintaining erections. Advocates of this approach propose that ingesting diluted hydrogen peroxide orally or applying it topically can boost oxygen levels in the blood, thereby supporting erectile function.

A 2022 study explored the impact of aging on blood vessel function in various body parts, including those involved in erectile function. Researchers found that as individuals age, the ability of blood vessels to relax and facilitate proper blood flow diminishes, which is essential for sustaining an erection. Notably, blood vessels in the penis seemed to be affected by this decline earlier than those in other body regions. 2

The study implies that hydrogen peroxide could improve blood flow by promoting relaxation in blood vessels. Although it doesn't directly investigate hydrogen peroxide therapy for ED, the findings offer a possible explanation for how hydrogen peroxide might benefit erectile function by enhancing blood flow in penile blood vessels.

Earth Clinic Reader Reviews

A few Earth Clinic readers have discovered that food-grade hydrogen peroxide therapy can have surprising benefits for erectile dysfunction.

In one popular post below, a 48-year-old male shared his experience with mild ED, where his erections were not as hard as they used to be. After starting H2O2 therapy for a health cleanse, taking three drops of 35% hydrogen peroxide in a glass of milk twice daily, he noticed a significant improvement in his erectile function within just two days.

After stopping the hydrogen peroxide therapy and finishing his natural testosterone booster tablets, he noticed a decline in erectile function. It wasn't until he tried the hydrogen peroxide again a year later that he realized it was the source of his previous virility. The man had tried Viagra once before, but it left him dehydrated and with a headache the next day. He found that hydrogen peroxide was a much more effective and side-effect-free solution to his ED.

Important Tips

If you want to try hydrogen peroxide therapy for ED, it is important to proceed cautiously and follow the proper instructions. Only use food-grade 35% hydrogen peroxide, which can be diluted with water to achieve the desired concentration. Start with a low dose of one drop per glass of water and gradually increase the dose over time as needed.

What Does the Research Say?

There is a lack of scientific evidence supporting using hydrogen peroxide for ED. While it is true that healthy blood flow is crucial for erectile function, there are no peer-reviewed studies that specifically examine the effects of hydrogen peroxide on ED. Most research on hydrogen peroxide focuses on its antimicrobial and wound-healing properties rather than its potential role in treating ED.

Potential Risks and Side Effects

Ingesting hydrogen peroxide, even in diluted form, can lead to side effects such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. In more severe cases, it can cause internal burns, organ damage, or even death.


While the scientific evidence is limited, some people searching for alternative treatments for ED have turned to hydrogen peroxide to get hard. Although anecdotal evidence suggests that hydrogen peroxide therapy may be helpful, it's important to approach this treatment method with caution and consult a healthcare professional before trying it.

I am currently doing the HP protocol of working up to 25 drops 3X/day. I am on my way back down the scale currently 14 drops. Skin much improved, long time pain right side of abdomen gone overall body/joint pain reduced or gone. One area it has not helped, actual has made worse is ED. I am 60 and have suffered with ED of varying levels for 20 year after being very verile and active without issues. Currently during FGHP protocol it is not even possible to get an erection except for occassional morning wood which disappears quickly. I even tried 1/8 of 100mg tablet of Viagra on the weekend which normally would provide a solid erection to be almost non effective with a 75% erection that only lasted for a few mins. This has been most surprising due to the testimonials on here of gents with great success with HP for ED. If anyone with sufficient understanding of the science can comment it would be appreciated.

I'm 48, but before my hydrogen peroxide experience, I couldn't remember the last time I had a morning erection. I had actually forgotten about it. One day, a few weeks ago, I woke up to a 5 am mild morning erection and I was surprised. I thought it was some vitamin C and D3 I had been taking, but two days later I realized that wasn't the case. Then I remembered that the only thing I did was gargle with a cap of 3% hydrogen peroxide in about 3oz of water and some commercial mouthwash after brushing my teeth.

Since they don't sell 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide online here in the US anymore, they only sell 12% food-grade, I went ahead and bought some. I started taking 10 drops of 12% food-grade hydrogen peroxide twice a day in 8oz of water and my next morning erection was as strong as when I was 20. I couldn't believe it. I've been taking it that way ever since, and not only have I been having stronger morning erections, but I've also been having the same results when having sex.

Another thing, I can take that amount and still eat normally after about 10 mins and haven't had any side effects. I'm planning to keep taking it that way since it has also normalized my blood pressure.

is this still working for you. How long have you been doing this??


Yes, it's still working. It has normalized my circulation.

Right now, I only have 3% HP. How much should I take on a daily basis for ED?

Replied by Vanillablooos

I actually found a website that sells 35% hydrogen peroxide. Not sure if I'm able to share the link here though.

I am a 48 year old male that is suffering from.... was suffering from mild erectile dysfunction. Erections were simply not as hard as they were when younger. Morning wood or morning glory was a long thing in the past.

I started doing h2o2 therapy for a health cleanse but could only make it up to 3 drops of 35%h2o2 in a glass of milk 2 times a day. Any more than than 3 for me was revolting. I did this for about one or two weeks. At the same time I was taking a natural testosterone booster.

Within 2 days at night just after going to bed I would get a rock hard erection that seemed to last for 30 minutes or more. After falling asleep would wake up with morning wood at about 5am with same strength and intensity.

I finished my t-boost tablets and stopped the h2o2 a couple of weeks earlier. At that stage I thought it was t-boost, and because I liked feeling like a twenty something down in that department I ordered some more natural t-boost at 60 bucks for 6 weeks supply.

Received my order within a week and started taking the t-boost and guess what.... Not a thing.... Went back to my old ways down stairs.. And just forgot about it....

It had been about a year and I had some left over h2o2 that I thought I should use before it goes off. It was at this time that the penny dropped that it could have been the h2o2 that was the source of my virility 12months earlier.

So on Wednesday night of last week I put 1 drop of 35% H2o2 in a glass of water and drank it.

At about 2am Thursday morning I woke up to a rock hard erection and went back to sleep.

The following night no h2o2 was taken and I was woken at 5am with morning glory.

I am in no doubt that h2o2 is giving me strong and hard erections, with no immediate side effects. I have tried viagra once, and will not use it again. It worked but no where near to what I have experienced with h2o2. Viagra left me dehydrated and with the dirtiest headache the next morning.

I see another poster said he found it helped his Ed. My experience agrees with him completely.

My question is..... Why is this happening. Why does ingesting a drop of H2o2 mixed with water having this effect?

Speculating two things. Increased blood flow. Cleanser effect including killing off bad bacteria in urinary tract that may be impeding erection quality. H2o2 increases oxygen in blood. Better oxygen supply = better erection quality?

Experimented back in 2017 and noticed a similar erect. Plump full and heavy erections.

ANY HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS FROM INGESTING 12% hydrogen peroxide? Wan to use it to help with my e.d. Any suggestion of how many drops to use in a glass of water? Thanks for your help

Replied by Eddie

No harmful side effects as long as you dilute it in distilled water. 1 drop of 35% HP = 3 drops 12% HP. 12% HP is what I've been using. My protocol is 16 drops 12% HP in 8 oz of distilled water twice a day.

Almost daily, I would have trouble becoming very tired in mid afternoon. Many times I would catch myself falling asleep at my desk. I started 10-15 ML of 35% H202 with 8-10 oz of reverse osmosis water about three weeks ago. I almost immediately I regained my energy and no longer fight sleep in the afternoon. About two days into the processes I notice that well.... my slight problem with ED had gone away. Being skeptical I stopped taking it and it re-appeared. I begain taking it again and it was no coincidence. So what's the reason for this?
