Looking for ways to induce an erection that can last long enough for good sex? Sildenafil can be the answer to your problem! It has a similar active ingredient as Viagra but it’s cheaper because you’re not paying for the brand name of Viagra. It takes action by inducing a reliable and consistent blood flow to the penis to enable and ensure you a strong erection when you plan to and need one.
Sildenafil is one of the commonly prescribed medications to treat erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the inability in men to induce and sustain an erection for sexual intercourse. As mentioned, it increases the blood flow to the penis as blood flow is one of the most important components in having an erection which includes the brain, muscles, nerves, and emotions.
How is Sildenafil taken?
When planning for sex, you should take Sildenafil an hour before. You can also take it earlier, but the important thing to remember is that Sildenafil’s effect lasts for four to five hours. So after taking it and waiting for the effect for an hour, you have a three hours window where your erection would be harder and would last longer than when you go without Sildenafil. It is best to start at and try 100mg of Sildenafil.
However, Sildenafil does not affect your sexual desire or libido. Taking Sildenafil does not mean your erection would last for four hours. Any time within the three hours after waiting for an hour for it to take effect, you can have an erection when you stimulate it. You still have to be sexually aroused for the medication to take effect which means foreplay may play an important role here. Once you are sexually stimulated and sildenafil takes effect, the blood vessels in your penis will be relaxed and open for an increased blood flow. More so, if you are planning to have sex after dinner, you may have to avoid the large dinner as it may cause a delay in the effects of sildenafil. Drinking alcohol also results in having an erection more difficult since drinking alcohol causes your blood pressure to drop and blood circulation will be affected. This causes erectile dysfunction. It may also worsen some of Sildenafil’s side effects which can headaches, feeling faint, and dizziness.
Can Sildenafil be used for the long term?
A study conducted among men who used Sildenafil for four years came up with results that the medication is safe and effective to be used over a long period of time. However, when it is so that you need to take it for a long period of time, you should also consult with a doctor to know what your erectile dysfunction’s underlying cause is. More so, you should also talk with your doctor about taking Sildenafil especially when you have a prior medical health issue. Having prior medical conditions will cause different side effects such as headaches, dizziness, nausea, feeling flushed or hot, indigestion, and visual changes.
