If you’re a man in Australia and you’re having difficulty achieving or keeping an erection when you’re with your partner, Viagra might just be the answer to getting your sex life back. For over two decades now, Viagra has been available in Australia with a prescription and in recent years it’s become an even easier process to order it online. Now, it’s as simple as filling out an online form, having a medical doctor review and approve it, and then just waiting for your medication to arrive. There are many reputable websites which you can go through if you’re not keen on the idea of having to explain your sexual problems to someone in a doctor’s office.
Viagra, if you’re not already familiar with it, was the first erectile dysfunction medication that was approved in Australia and available to Aussies, long before many of it’s competitors arrived on the scene. It’s lasted this long on the market and is still the most popular erectile dysfunction drug for good reason. While there’s many different health conditions that can affect a man’s libido or erections, the vast majority of men who have difficulty getting or keeping erections have these problems due to poor blood circulation.
How viagra works?
The way Viagra works is that it’s main ingredient, sildenafil citrate, widens the blood vessels in your body. This allows the blood to reach areas in the penile range where it might be having problems getting to, which then leads to an improvement in both getting erections and the ability to maintain them throughout intercourse.
Typically, it’s recommended that you take Viagra about 30 minutes to an hour before you expect to be with your partner. Once you become aroused and intimate with someone after this time frame, the medicine normally starts doing it’s magic. That’s when men who previously couldn’t please their significant others suddenly feel as capable as they did when they were younger and an immediate improvement in erectile stiffness is noticed.
Viagra has helped many Aussies get their sex lives back, but it’s not for everyone. It’s always best to speak to a doctor regarding your health before taking Viagra just to rule out any other possible causes of your erectile dysfunction.
Because Viagra is a vasodilator, which is a drug that improves circulation, it can be dangerous for your blood pressure to take it with any other drugs or nitrates which can affect the heart or blood. If you’re taking any other medications and considering taking Viagra you should definitely check with a doctor to make sure the combination is safe together.
Side effects related to Viagra
In regards to side effects, Viagra is no different than any other medication, meaning that the possibility of side effects exists. However, the most common side effects which are not considered particularly dangerous include a runny or stuffed up nose, upset stomach, diarrhea, feeling a bit light headed, headaches, sensitivity to light, and feeling warm in your face or body. While these are common among those who have reported side effects, they are still considered rare among the majority of people who take Viagra. Any other side effects or anything you’re unsure about should be reported to an emergency center or doctor immediately.
