Default Viagra - experiences?

My husband has been totally off sex for a long while and we finally concluded it was due to performance anxiety leading to him being adverse to it.

The other day we went to consult our family doctor who suggested that he consider Viagra. He will be getting tests for diabetes and heart problems before he gets his prescription. He should be fine because he is only 31 and otherwise healthy.

I'm really hopeful and excited about it, my thinking is that it will help him regain his confidence again. I do think that it is a psychological problem, the more anxious he is the less able he is to get it up... and the less able he is to get it up the more stressed he is... its a vicious cycle. I am hoping that this will help.. but I hope it won't wind up being something he gets dependant on. Hopefully after a while when he realises things are totally fine, he can stop using it.

What do you guys think? Are there any downsides to resorting to Viagra?

Hmm. Would you call a 3 day erection a downside? That was my side-effect. Terribly embarrassing in a real life environment.

Nowadays, I simply exercise more. Particularly pumping weight. I suspect my testosterone level has gone up and has cured my issue.

BTW, I'm 40.

Viagra perhaps will help him get over the hump. I have tried it when I was single. The only time I used it was when I was drunk or the first time I was with someone because I wanted a guarenteed hard on.

Let me tell you this stuff works. It's like rocket fuel for the penis. I was extra extra hard. And the nice thing was when I woke up the next day it seemed to linger in my system and I had it's benefit for a day or so.

I do think for some it is psychological. My husband was prescribed some viagra. I was hoping for some type satisfaction. It only lasted 3 minutes.

It's easy for a man to train himself to last longer. It does not take very long. It's just that so much ignorance is out there.

I think that it might be the thing to get him to where he neds to be and at this point any solution is worth a try and in the mean time you can make sur he is healthy.

Can Viagra be used for women? My wifes sex drive is all but gone due to the medicine she is taking. We are just looking for something to spark any interest.

If she does not have any contra indications, the best thing for her is high dose fish oil. Not the cheap cod liver oil, but the stuff that contains a high amount of EPA/DEA. If you add the EPA and DEA mg figures together that should equal half or more of the total mg.

For instance if you have a 1gram (1000mg) capsule, then if the EPA +DEA figure comes to over 500mg, it's the good stuff.

Take enough of this every day, and after about two weeks her libido will go up. The exact dosage depends on body weight. A woman I know wrote a book about it called "The Orgasmic Diet". The fish oil is the key. I have tried it too. It makes the penis more sensitive - you get more amazing sensation, yet for me it did not make ejaculation happen any sooner. My sex drive went up too, but that's another story.

There is no point in women taking Viagra. It will have exactly the same effect on her body as on a man's body. Her clitoris and other parts will swell - if she is already turned on. But it is not a libido enhancer, so if she is not already turned on, it will do very little sexually.

Fish-oil is a libido enhancer, but it takes 2 weeks to start working. The author of the book said you should eat a few squares a day of dark chocolate too.

Curiosity Question. I don't know much about Viagra, Cialis or any other of these drugs.

Does Viagra only increase the ability to get an erection, or does it also improve performance, like Stamina and Refractory period
