What does Viagra do?

16th October 2019

You may have heard about the benefits of Viagra and wonder if this erectile dysfunction medication is right for you. Viagra is the most popular ED treatment medication in the world. There were nearly 3 million prescriptions for Viagra in 2016. It's time to take control of your sex life with this amazing blue pill. Viagra is a wonder drug that can help a man achieve and maintain an erection. Millions of men around the world suffer from erectile dysfunction, a condition that prevents them from having the sex they desire. Viagra can treat this condition, allowing men who suffer from ED to enjoy sex once again.

What does Viagra do?

In a healthy individual who is not experiencing ED, sexual arousal will stimulate increased blood flow to the penis causing an erection. Men who are experiencing erectile dysfunction are unable to do this, for a variety of reasons. Different factors which can influence ED include lifestyle, age, stress, diet, exercise as well as psychological issues. Viagra is an effective treatment for ED in that it stimulates blood flow to cause an erection, even with the ED-inducing factors present. Viagra works to increase levels of nitric oxide in the blood, leading to increased blood flow to the genitals. This can be helpful in achieving an erection, especially in individuals who are suffering from the following conditions:

  • Penis gets larger, but not hard
  • Penis gets hard, but not enough for penetration
  • Penis gets hard enough for penetration, but not completely hard

For people who experience the above symptoms of ED, Viagra may be helpful in letting them experience a completely hard and fully rigid erection.

How to take Viagra

It is best to take Viagra on an empty stomach, approximately a half-hour to an hour before you wish to have sex. If you eat a meal prior to taking Viagra, the expected erection may be delayed or not as firm as desired. Viagra may remain effective for up to twelve hours, though typically the best results will be experienced within four hours of taking the medication. Certain foods should not be eaten with Viagra, such as grapefruit, pomegranate or high-fat meals. Grapefruit and pomegranate have enzymes that can prevent the proper absorption of Viagra. High-fat meals can delay or reduce the desired effect.

How long will my erection last?

The exact duration of erections may vary from person to person, but men can have erections lasting for up to 30 minutes that occur within an hour of taking Viagra. Viagra has a half-life of four hours. This means that your peak absorption of viagra will have diminished by half, four hours after consumption. Men may find themselves able to still get an erection for up to eight hours after taking Viagra, which will vary depending on the dose taken.

Are multiple orgasms possible with Viagra?

Viagra can help men reduce their refractory period. This is the amount of time the penis needs to recover after having had sex. Normally, there is a period of time that a man needs after ejaculating before they are able to have sex again. This amount of time varies between men, but in general, the time for recovery is shorter when a person is younger. The time increases as a man ages. Viagra can help lessen the time necessary before a man must wait to have another erection after having sex.

Can women take Viagra?

Viagra alternatives

There are a few alternatives to Viagra if you are having issues with the blue pill. One is called cialis, the other is Levitra.

Viagra vs Cialis

Some people have adverse side effects taking Viagra. The largest of these are rashes and muscle aches. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may consider trying Cialis instead of Viagra. Other benefits may come with timing, where Viagra is effective between a half-hour to twelve hours, and Cialis is between a half-hour and 36 hours.
