So let’s say you have a girl that’s really into you and it’s time to get it on. Only your manhood is not cooperating. Maybe you’ve had a little bit too much to drink and you’ve got some “whisky dick”, maybe it’s anxiety, or maybe it’s something physical. What do you do? That’s when you turn to your little friend in pill form – viagra.

Viagra is a prescription medicine that is used to treat erectile dysfunction and impotence in men. The way it works is by increasing the flow of blood to the penis and help the user obtain and sustain an erection when he is sexually aroused. It has an active ingredient called sildenafil and comes in a range of doses from 25mg to 100mg per tablet.

How Long Will Viagra Work?

Once you pop a pill, the results vary from person to person. The rule of thumb is that it should start working in around 30 minutes, so plan accordingly. However, it is important to note that taking Viagra itself will not lead to an erection. Rather, you need to have some kind of stimulation sexually to arouse yourself, whether it be physical or visual or otherwise. Once you become aroused, it will help maintain an erection, but taking a Viagra itself will not magically give you a boner.

After you take it, the results again vary for each user. It has been said to work for up to 5 hours at a time when you continue to be stimulated sexually. However most men are saying that the average erection will start to wear off after about 2 or 3 hours of taking it. That should give you plenty of time to do all the things she wants when it comes to sex.

what to expect from taking viagra

There are a number of factors that play a part in how long it lasts for each person. Before taking Viagra you should consult your doctor and discuss your full medical history and find out if it is right for you. It shouldn’t be taken just for sport, rather to address a real problem. Here’s a few things that can factor into how long it will last for each person.

Age – The older you are, the slower your metabolic system is, so the dosage will stay in your body longer if you are older, with men over 65 years old seeing the longest duration.

Diet – If you have a big meal before taking the pill, it will take longer to break down and digest as your stomach is already working to digest the food in your stomach. Taking the pill on an empty stomach can help speed up the effects.

Alcohol – The ol’ “whiskey dick” I referred to above. Alcohol decreases the flow of blood to the penis, making it more difficult to obtain an erection. Avoid drinking before taking your dosage.

Interactions with Other Drugs – some chemicals can counteract the active ingredient in Viagra and prevent it from doing what it is intended to do.

So if you’ve been having some problems in the bedroom, fear not as there are solutions available in prescription form. Visit your doctor to see if Viagra or Cialis are right for you.
