Erectile dysfunction is an incredibly common problem that affects 4.3 million men in the UK. That’s the equivalent to every one in five men. And yet it is a problem that most men are embarrassed to talk about. They seek to find a solution to their condition without having to talk about it with their loved ones, partner, or even their doctor.  Many men consider Viagra for ED problems, but don’t know whether it is the right choice for them. If that sounds familiar then here’s everything you need to know about how Viagra can help you if you’re suffering from erectile dysfunction:

How Does Viagra Work?

Viagra is an oral medication that works by increasing the blood flow to the penis, so that you can get and maintain an erection that is hard enough to engage in sexual intercourse. The results of the medication can vary from individual to individual, as will the length of time that your erection will last. But on average, viagra will start to work between 30 and 60 minutes after you first take it. You should only take a Viagra pill when you need it, and you should never take more than two pills in any 24 hour period.

Viagra only works when you are sexually stimulated , so can you take it up to four hours before you engage in sexual activity without any concerns about gaining an erection at an inopportune moment.

It’s important to note that, as with all medications, Viagra might not work for everyone. However it is a medication with a very high success rate, and research has found that it helped approximately four out of five men who chose to take it get and maintain an erection hard enough to have sex.

Understanding Potential Side Effects

Like all medications, Viagra carries some side effects that can affect some users. It’s important to note that most of these side effects are very rare, but being aware of them will help you to know what you should look out for. Side effects to look out for include:

  • Sudden vision loss in one or both eyes. This could be an eye condition called non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy, and if you experience it then you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
  • A decrease in your hearing. You may find that when you take Viagra you experience a small amount of hearing loss, ringing in your ears (tinitus) or dizziness. Again, if you experience any of these symptoms you should stop taking your medication and pay a visit to your physician.
  • A prolonged or permanent erection. If your erection hasn’t dissipated four hours after you engaged in sexual intercourse then you should seek immediate medical attention: this will help you to avoid long term injury to your penis.

Other Benefits of Viagra

As well as helping you to gain an erection, Viagra use can also carry other positive benefits. One of these is a shortened refractory period. (The refractory period is the length of time that a man needs to wait between ejaculations).  In simple terms, there is a period of time after a man has ejaculates in which he simply cannot achieve another erection. However research has found that the use of Viagra can shorted that time frame.

Other evidence has also found that Viagra use could have at least short-term benefits to your lungs, heart and other organs. This is because Viagra doesn’t just relax the blood vessels in the penis, but the blood vessels across your whole body. And this can only be good news for your overall health. The one caveat to this is if you already have heart issues: viagra is not recommended for use by men who have heart conditions, as viagra combined with the nitrates so often used to treat cardiac complaints could lead to a catastrophic blood pressure drop, which could have devastating affects.

Is Viagra The Right Choice for You?

Deciding whether Viagra is the right choice for you is a very personal decision that can only be made by you, working in conjunction with your doctor. But if you are suffering from erectile dysfunction whilst still having overall good health, then there is a good chance that this simple oral medication could immediately solve your problems and leave you able to enjoy a full and satisfying sex life again.
