Since the advent of Viagra in the late 1980’s and the subsequent media attention the treatment has received, society has been fixated on a little blue pill.
Usually, the perception exists that only older men over 60 suffer from erectile dysfunction, but more frequently, younger men are seeing an increase in the condition too. According to The Merck Manual, an estimated 50 percent of men ages 40 to 70 experience it at one time or another and the risk increases with age.
Sildenafil citrate was originally created by British Pfizer scientists Peter Dunn and Albert Wood to treat high blood pressure and angina, a chest pain associated with coronary heart disease.
Yet it was quickly found, through trials of the drug in the mid-1990’s, that men using it were experiencing erections days after taking the drug. This was due to an increase in blood flow to blood vessels opening up around the penis and the compound, sildenafil citrate, was quickly patented. The idea of it treating heart-related issues dissolved as a more lucrative market became apparent – that of dealing and healing men’s impotence.
The condition causes anxiety and shame in men affected and many may find it difficult to open up about the issue they’re having. This may be due to the stereotypical idea and expectations that society has of men having to be virile providers and protectors.
Most men are also notoriously bad at seeking medical help and so the causes of erectile dysfunction may remain hidden for longer.
Also, it may be very difficult for many couples to talk about sex, and especially to talk about erection problems. This can cause serious issues within relationships.
Besides managing your stress levels and after you’ve consulted your doctor and received a thorough medical examination to rule out any serious medical conditions, you can opt to look at natural supplements or medication.
Natural remedies and supplements have a long history, having been used in many cultures, namely African and Chinese.
The downside of using them is that that haven’t been well tested and studied, which could cause negative side effects, especially if you are taking other medications.
If you decide to go the medical route, or your doctor prescribes medication, he will most probably prescribe one of these – Sildenafil (Viagra), Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn), Tadalafil (Cialis) or Avanafil (Stendra).
If you are looking to save costs and try a generic medication, Kamagra tablets are worth looking at.
Kamagra aims to solve the dual problem of erectile dysfunction as well as and premature ejaculation. Typically it should be taken one hour before sexual intercourse.
Kamagra tablets is not an aphrodisiac and when taking it, you will still need sexual stimulation to create arousal. Kamagra tablets come in dosages 25 mg, 50 mg 100 mg. The larger pills could be split for a lower dosage, if and when needed.
