Most men have experienced at least one episode of ED or Erectile Dysfunction in their lives. For some however the agony can prolong for more than just one occasion and become a regularly occurring nuisance. Agony is the right word isn’t it? Imagine the mood is set, finally you are getting a chance to be intimate with your partner (phew it’s been a while), it’s about to take off when suddenly you realize that nothing is ‘taking off’ quite literally. Your little fella/buddy/junior has failed you for the first time and that too at the most opportune moment. If this won’t cause you agony then I don’t know what will. Anyway coming back. Erectile dysfunction affects almost 30 million men in the US which is a whopping number anyway you choose to look at it. There can be a tendency sometimes to be over dependent on medications like Generic Viagra to be the solution to your problems. In this blog we explain why such a mentality can be risky and why it’s more important to get to the root of your ED troubles from a long term health point of view.
Why does erectile dysfunction occur?
Erectile dysfunction is conditions that prevent men from achieving erections that are sufficiently firm enough to be sustained during sex. A floppy or flaccid penis is the result of erectile dysfunction. To understand why erectile dysfunction occurs it’s important to understand how an erection occurs. Aren’t you curious to know why your penis becomes longer and hard all of a sudden when the rest of the time it’s fairly anonymous? Yes you are ‘aroused’ but how does that arousal result in an erection? Whenever you feel aroused there is a release of chemicals triggered by the brain. These chemicals ensure a greater amount of blood is now supplied into the penis. As a consequence of greater blood flow you now feel an erection. Erectile dysfunction is the result of either insufficient blood flow into the penis or a lack of arousal.
Why it’s perilous to ignore ED?
The tendency among men is to ignore the why of their ED woes instead focusing on solutions such as Viagra super force to remedy their ED. Viagra medications are effective no doubt but should never be thought of as a cure for ED. the only way ED can be completely overcome is by understand and rectifying the core symptoms that has contributed towards it. Common causes of ED include
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Penile deformities
As you can see many of the symptoms of ED are of a cardiovascular nature. So ignoring them exposes you to the risk of encountering a serious cardiac episode in the future. Erectile dysfunction can also be the first symptom of some of the above mentioned causes which is why it should be considered as a warning.
How Viagra medications work?
Viagra samples contain Sildenafil citrate which is a PDE5 inhibitor. Sildenafil citrate is a PDE5 inhibitor which increases the distribution of nitric oxide by ‘inhibiting’ c-GMP. Nitric oxide relaxes the muscles located in the corpus cavernosum of the penis which leads to widening of blood vessels. As the blood vessels widen there is now greater absorption of blood. So when these blood vessels dilate a greater amount of blood is now supplied into the penis. This leads to the patient experiencing firm and long lasting erections of the penis.
