    Makes Sex More Satisfying


A prescription-only active ingredient approved by the FDA to help treat erectile dysfunction, made popular by brands like Viagra and Teva.

Sildenafil is a Common Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

Twenty years ago, Sildenafil was approved by the FDA approved for Erectile Dysfunction and Pfizer made the drug an household name with the introduction of Viagra. Fast forward to 2018, and over a million prescriptions of Sildenafil are prescribed each year.

Given its lengthy history in the marketplace, you have likely heard about it, but you may not know how it works. Read on to learn more.

Sildenafil Helps Improve Bloodflow

For millions of men, achieving or sustaining an erection at times can be difficult. Your body is a complex organism, and even when you’re sexually aroused, physically or mentally, your penis may not always function the way you hope. Sildenafil works by relaxing the muscles inside the blood vessels and allowing them to hold blood longer. The enzymes in your body work in tandem to bring blood to the penis to make it erect and to hold it there until sexual intercourse is complete. At that time, another enzyme is released, and the blood keeping the penis erect is directed back to other areas of the body. If you have difficulty maintaining an erection during intercourse, these two enzymes are most likely overpowering one another, and blood is not held in the penis long enough to complete intercourse.

Sildenafil Doesn't Cause Spontaneous Erections

Let’s be honest, ED pills earned the nickname “boner pills” a long time ago, but that’s not exactly accurate. Some men worry that taking Sildenafil will cause a spontaneous erection, but that is not actually true.  The active ingredient only makes it easier for blood to flow to your penis and remain there while erect, so if you are not aroused you will not get an unwanted erection.  Arousal and improved blood flow work together to help you have a more complete sexual experience.

Sildenafil stays active in your system for 4-6 hours and will only be triggered when you are aroused.


Sildenafil Makes Sex More Satisfying

Many men experience some form of erectile dysfunction for a variety of reasons, but the good news is that most cases of ED are treatable. If getting an erection is difficult or stressful, Sildenafil can be taken in advance of sexual activity to help improve blood flow to the penis. This isn’t its only benefit, however. Many men worry about their sexual performance, and that anxiety can obviously make things even worse. With Sildenafil, men often experience firmer erections, which makes satisfying their partners more likely. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your performance, talk with our medical team AND your partner. Your discomfort can translate to a lack of interest in your partner, which you can be quickly dismissed by reassuring your special someone that the issue is biological and not personal.

P.S. Just having that conversation can improve your sex life immensely.
