Army doctors began referring squaddies for “psychosexual therapy counselling” after many returned from tours unable to perform.

More than 60 troops have been sent for private sessions and 3,000 have been given Viagra in the last five years, according to Ministry of Defence documents.

In some cases, spouses have also been offered thereapy to help save their marriages.

Couples referred by military medics discuss their sexual problems with trained counsellors who try and find the root cause of their problems.

But experts believe in many cases it is linked to stress of serving in combat zones.

Hundreds of troops are treated for PTSD and other mental health issues after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.


The claims that impotence is linked to PTSD were supported by research conducted in the United States.

The research showed that troops suffering from the disorder were “significantly more likely than their civilian counterparts to report erectile dysfunction or other sexual problems”, according to the US Department of Veterans Affairs.

Thousands of troops returning from war zones or foreign exercises have been forced to turn to the sex wonder drug to help them perform in the bedroom.
