Viagra Effects

While there are numerous health conditions that may require treatment with Viagra, in this article we will focus on the one that concerns most men. As you might have guessed this condition is erectile dysfunction – a health disorder more commonly known as ED or impotence. There are different factors that may cause erectile dysfunction, such as age, sedentary lifestyle, certain illnesses, including sexually transmitted infections, etc. However, the good news is that Viagra helps in the vast majority of ED cases, regardless of their genesis.

The most common Viagra effects that patients experience after taking the pill include:

  • improved blood flow towards the pelvic area,
  • better libido,
  • perfectly hard erection – even harder that what the patient might have experienced before ED.

Some patients talking about the effects of Viagra also report the fact that this medication makes them last longer in bed and intensifies their orgasms. While these effects are not on the manufacturer’s list, they are still observed frequently enough for us to conclude that you are very likely to experience them too if you decide to choose Viagra as your erectile dysfunction treatment.

Viagra works by inhibiting a special hormone called PDE5, which leads to smooth muscle relaxation in the penile body. As a result, more blood can enter the cavernous structures inside your penis, which results in a strong and perfectly natural erection.

In most cases, Viagra starts working 30-60 minutes after consumption, depending on the form of the medication, the patient’s metabolic function and other factors. It’s important to note that popping the pill alone won’t give you an erection (and that’s actually good because it will save you from a lot of potentially embarrassing situations when you are taking Viagra a long time before sexual activity). Sexual stimulation will be required prior to intercourse. Nothing special though – ordinary foreplay before sex is more than likely to do the job for you. The pill will keep on working for 4-6 hours, its effect ceasing slowly over time or immediately after sex.

In spite of this medication being one of the safest currently in the market, we feel we should also mention some of adverse Viagra effects. The most widespread of these may include the following:

  • blushing;
  • nausea;
  • nasal congestion;
  • blurred vision.

There’s also a history of more serious side effects of Viagra, which are observed very rarely but, nevertheless, should be mentioned to potential consumers of this ED medication as well. While the possibility of you experiencing any of these effects is negligibly low, keep them in mind and always seek for medical help immediately if you experience any of the following:

  • chest pain or irregular heartbeat (might be a sign of heart attack or stroke);
  • severe vision changes (color blindness or vision loss) due to increased intraocular pressure;
  • sudden loss of hearing;
  • swelling of limbs;
  • shortness of breath;
  • intense feeling of light-headedness or fainting;
  • priapism (an erection that lasts for 4 hours or more).
