Viagra and Cialis to combat impotence

About 18% of men over 18 suffer from a form of erectile dysfunction in the Western World. If I tell you this means that over 800,000 men have an erectile dysfunction problem, you’ll soon realise the gravity of the problem. Luckily something can be done about erectile dysfunction. Remedies like Viagra and Cialis are now available.

What causes impotence?

There are several different reasons why a man can get problems with his erection. What I want to stress first of all though is that if you suffer from impotence you should go and see a doctor immediately.  You could for example have a serious blood flow problem, which might be a sign of more blood flow problems elsewhere in your body caused by cardiovascular disease. Make sure you get a thorough medical check-up by your GP before taking the next step.

Age and impotence

Impotence can simply be caused by age. According to research done in the USA, around 30% of 45 year old men have erectile dysfunction problems. This rises to 40% for 60 year olds and 50% for 70 year olds. So you should not really be surprised if it happens, it occurs more often than you think.

Still men don’t like to talk about it; their egos and virility is put to the test by impotence. It’s a pity that men don’t talk, because these days it’s easy to solve these problems by using products like Viagra to conquer erectile dysfunction.

Impotence caused by clogged blood vessels

While we grow older our chance to develop arteriosclerosis grows as well. This condition changes the blood flow which makes it difficult to get an erection because the blood supply to the penis is hampered. This means that it can take longer to get an erection, or the erection might not last as long.

Erectile Dysfunction caused by alcohol, drugs and smoking

After long research it has been shown that alcohol consumption
affects the male hormone levels. Men who drink too much may even develop (female) breasts and their testicles may reduce in size. We do have to remark here that one glass of wine a day is considered to be good for the blood vessels.

Smoking banned substances like cocaine and opium, but also cannabis and nicotine may have a negative influence on your sex life. It often happens that men under influence often feel like having sex, but their body doesn’t cooperate. The same counts for swallowing pills like XTC and amphetamines.

Psychological causes of impotence

Stress can cause impotence. For example stress at work or problems in a relationship. There are many different reasons for stress. Other psychological problems like depression, fear of intimacy, a bad sexual experience in the past can also cause the problem. Other causes of erectile dysfunction are the use of certain medicines, AIDS or HIV and diabetes.

There are many other causes, like the use of certain medicines, Aids or HIV and diabetes.

Viagra and Cialis as solutions for impotence

Currently there are medicines available to combat the ‘limp dick’. Let’s have a closer look at Viagra.

What exactly is Viagra?

viagra and cialisThis is a very logical question. What is Viagra? Viagra has existed since 1998, when Pfizer brought it on the market. Since then 27 million people have solved their erection problem by swallowing this blue pill. When we talk about Viagra, we really mean Sildenafil, which was patented in 1996. The yearly turnover for Viagra alone is around 1 billion dollar; this says enough about its popularity.

There are many different stories doing the rounds about Viagra. Some people say it is a ‘super potency’ drug, while others call it the ‘love drug’. Some even claim it is better for women than men.

Sildenafil was originally developed to cure angina pectoris (pain in the chest), but during the clinical tests it was noticed that this product had a stimulating effect on the erection. The rest is history. Since that day millions of people have said goodbye to their erection problem thanks to Viagra.

How Viagra works against impotence

Viagra belongs to a group of medicines named ‘phosphodiesterase-type 5’ (PDE5 inhibitors). That’s a big word. It just means that this product relaxes the blood vessels in the penis, making it possible to let blood stream to the penis during arousal. But note that you can only get an erection by using Viagra if you are really sexually aroused. This product is made only for men, and it is very important that you don’t order it on the internet. There are many offers out there, but often these pills are no good. Order them through your doctor to make sure that you get an efficient product. After taking the pill you’ll notice the effect after half an hour to an hour. The duration of Viagra’s effect on your erection is different for each person. On average it lasts around 25 minutes.

Does Viagra also have side-effects?

Viagra has side-effects, just like any medicine. The following side-effects have been discovered during the clinical trials: headache, blushing, dizziness, digestive problems, Blocked nose and a pounding heartbeat, disruption in colour vision, higher light sensitivity and less visual acuity. More side-effects have been reported, and although these side effects don’t often occur, it is always wise to read the leaflet with user instructions.

How Cialis works against impotence

Cialis is another effective product against erectile dysfunction, or to say it differently, a product that provokes an erection. The active substance of this product is tadalafil which belongs to medicine group of phosphodiesterase inhibitors type 5.

This product works longer than Viagra. You can take it from 1 to 12 hours before intercourse and after 18 hours only half of the substance has been excreted. The advantage of this is that you are not as constricted by time when using Cialis. If it things don’t work out in the evening there’s no problem, you can just try again the next morning because Cialis works so long. Apart from the duration the product functions just like Viagra. Which of the two is best really depends on each person. Cialis is only available by subscription just like Viagra.

The dangers of using Viagra and Cialis

Viagra and Cialis both have a dangerous and amplifying effect on people who already follow a nitrate-based treatment. The effects of heart tablets for chest pain treatment are amplified. The libido increasing tablets contain similar nitrate solutions. Viagra can NOT be used by people who take nitrates. Cialis has a similar effect, and can’t be used by people on nitrate treatment.

Viagra and Cialis can be dangerous, especially when the medication like Viagra gets abused.

viagra and cialis dangers

Are Viagra and Cialis a blessing in the fight against impotence?

These products carry dangers, cause side-effects and this can be a problem for some. But that is the case with every medicine. What it all comes down to is that you don’t need to suffer too long from erectile dysfunction. Go to see your GP first to get a thorough check-up. If you are in good physical health, then the problem could be psychological.

If you can you should avoid stress. If you have relationship problems, you can always talk about it with your partner. Erectile dysfunction should no longer be a problem. Ask your GP for advice and don’t be embarrassed. It may be taboo, especially amongst men, but it’s time to break it. There are enough remedies available these days to get a better erection. Make sure you do all you can to treat the cause of the erectile dysfunction. Better safe than sorry. Viagra and Cialis have great results of course, but if there is a possibility to avoid using them, you should, it can only be better for you!
