Which ED treatment is right for you? We look at the pros and cons of Viagra.

Since it first came into the UK market almost 20 years ago, sildenafil citrate – commonly known as Viagra – quickly became the go-to drug for many men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED). Originally intended to aid those suffering from mild angina and high blood pressure, the medication was found to significantly improve sexual performance for a number of males, helping men gain and maintain an erection.

While we acknowledge the impact that Viagra has undoubtedly had on the lives of many ED sufferers, we want to spread the word about our shockwave-based treatment and how it can be more beneficial in the long term for men, their partners and their relationships.

“You head upstairs, darling – give me 30 minutes to an hour”

Our blog piece last week looked at ED from a female perspective. Something which we touched upon was the importance of spontaneity in a relationship – something that is lost when looking for short-term solutions to sexual difficulties.

Viagra users are required to take the drug 30-60 minutes in advance of sexual activity in order to get an erection, according to the official website. Bear in mind that it’s also stated that this is based on having an empty stomach. So, if you’ve been out for a posh anniversary meal, had a few drinks and gone back home for a wild night of romance, waiting over an hour to rise to the occasion might well be something of a mood-killer.

Spontaneity can be key to keeping long-term relationships fresh and exciting, and losing this aspect can be a real blow to a couple. Through Vigore’s linear shockwave therapy, powered by Renova, our patients may walk away from our clinics with a longer-term solution which doesn’t require a specified waiting time.

“This? Oh, this is all me – I’m not relying on a little blue pill”

We pride ourselves on being the only long-term solution to ED which carries no known side effects. Sex is important, but it’s no good sacrificing other elements of your wellbeing in order to be able to perform in the bedroom.

The list of related side effects for those who use Viagra is undeniably long. Of course, not all of these will be suffered by every user, but Lloyds Pharmacy lists the following as either “very common” or “common” occurrences directly related to taking the drug:

  • Nausea/headaches
  • Stuffy nose
  • Indigestion
  • Dizziness
  • Changes in vision (blue tint or blurring)
  • Skin flushes on the face (redness)

A solution can hardly be called a solution if it results in problems elsewhere. Stopping halfway through sex to blow your stuff nose isn’t much of a turn on for your partner, and nor is not being able to see your partner properly because you’re complaining about blurred vision! And, as for that red, rashy face – far from sexy, guys.
