Default Experience with Viagra

I have done some reading on the subject but want to hear from some real people who have used it.

I have never been impotent. But I feel like I am not as 'hard' as I used to be. I am 47 years old. Also, I am sometimes quicker than I would like. Up until I was 30, I could just keep going and get hard again. Now that doesn't happen, and I need a 30 minute break or so. I have heard that Viagra can help you recover quicker.

My wife and I are off to Mexico next week for a week alone. I am thinking of going to the doctor for a prescription for Viagra. Embarrassed to ask, but wondering if the embarrassment would be worth it.

Anyone want to share their experience?

I've used cialis. Works like advertised. Yeah, it was a little embarrassing to talk about it, but I'm pretty sure your doctor has heard much worse.

I don't think it helps me last longer, but it does perk things up nicely. And getting an erection after orgasm much quicker. Doesn't seem to help me much with the second orgasm, though... That's still a rarity. Maybe it's because I take pity on my GF before I have that second one, or we'd be there for hours.

I got a prescription to get me over a little mental hump, and it worked great for that. Restored confidence and all that. Now, I use them for "special occasions". You know, when you really want to make your point. Over and over again.... . The good thing about cialis is that the effects last for 36 hours, instead of 4 for Viagra.

If you have any questions, fire away. I'm not shy. . One thing I'll point out is that they don't affect your desire (that I noticed). They just affect the ability. But it doesn't sound like you have issues with that anyway. My side effects were primarily a headache, a few hours after taking one. So I use to pop a couple of advil at the same time. Now, that's not a regular occurrence so I don't bother.

Thanks PBear .... not sure I want to walk around the resort with the 'effects' showing for 36 hours. Sounds like it might be worth getting ... for 'special occasions'.

Well, it's not like you're walking around with a towel rack for 36 hours, although that might come in handy. For me at least, it comes and goes at mostly appropriate times. I can take one, and the same day I can go out with my kids, go running, etc without drawing attention to myself. It's like it took about 10 years off my response, that's all.

If I was you, I'd get the prescription, and try it before you go. You can even start with half a pill. I've done that, and it seems just as effective to me.

Count me in as a Cialis proponent. Myself, I tried the daily dose option, and it worked well. Down side was that, being daily dose, that's 30 per month...but my insurance would only cover 3 per month. That first fill of the prescription was taken care of by a free trial coupon from the manufacturer, but beyond that, it's kinda pricey. Even mail order, they'll only provide somewhere from 9-15 of the daily dose as a three month supply. While contesting their decision (unsuccessfully), my doc gave me a sample of the "as needed" dosage, and it worked, too. Going to see him for a regular checkup in the next few weeks. Going to have him check my T levels, and also write me a three month Rx for the "as needed" dosage, because insurance will approve something like 24 of those for a three month period...and with it's effective period, coupled with our normal "frequency" minus the week my wife is "out of commission"...that may as well be a three month supply of the daily dose. Go figure.

I`m 44 and experience the same hardness problem you describe.

25 mil of Viagra on our "date night" and my penis is 18 again.

Rock hard, larger, and can go multiple times (4-5).

I still feel the remnants of the drug the following morning with a serious morning erection and unwanted erections at work throughout the morning.

Search the internet, there are usually free samples you can get coupons for from Cialis or Levitra from their official website. I've not tried it with a partner yet, kinda of why I hang out on this forum, but by myself they seem to work well.

Just tried a full dose of Viagra, for the first time. Won't do that again! All of a sudden, everything went blue/purple. Some weird sh1t. Just glad it was a cloudy day!

Even now, 3 hours later, everything has a blueish tint, like wearing light blue sunglasses.

I've heard that's one of the possible side effects. There was even an episode of Mad About You over 10 years ago in which Paul took a Viagra out of curiosity, and had that very side effect. As I recall, there was a quick throw-away gag with Paul passing a sailor in dress whites on the street and commenting on what he perceived as new mail carrier uniforms.

It really was that bad. Very weird. Glad I had read my pamphlet. . Otherwise I might have panicked.

You are able to get hard again after 30 minutes .. At your age, that is impressive! My husband is your age, he can not do this at all. He either needs a good 6 hours of sleep or another 12 hours , to do another round. IN the last 3 years, I think we have only done it twice in one day 3 times total (without erection help that is ). I consider his Reractory period a full day at this point. I won't push his limits, but boy I have wanted too.

What's Average Latency Refractory Waiting Time Between Ejaculations, Cumming, Orgasms, Or Climax?

Viagra can help you last longer and get it up quicker, on occassion my husband will pop one (though a split one, 50mg is too much, too strong, he starts sniffling & sometimes get a headache with that dosage).

Docs are used to men in thier 40's asking for this, nothing to be embarrassed about at all -he will at least give you a sample pack. You can cut those 50mg in half (at least) -you hardly sound like you need it though!! I cut my husbands 50mg into 4's, and it still gives a little boost on some of those nights where he is a little more tired. Last night he took one after working late outside, and told me to wake him up in the middle of the night. It does help with the ROCK hardness.

Many times it does seem to allow him to last longer, but then other times, it seems to make no difference. So not so sure about that, depends on your excitemenet level I would think . Seems that way for my husband.

I am thrilled I live in the age of Viagra. As my husband has lower -but normal Test levels, and as I have gotten older, I have surpassed his NEED for gettin' some. So I salute that little blue pill ! Saved us a # of nights, especially when he went through a "performace pressure" issue -cause of my high drive. But he still wanted me to pester him... with a little vitamin V down the hatch , an hour later, some touch, he was good to go!

Never used any of the ED medications...but, I only need about 15-20 minutes before the old boy is ready for another 'round!

Turned 50 this year, myself...but I've always tried to stay in fit, athletic condition and maintained my weight at 170 for about 20 years now. Hope that's paying off for me!

A couple people above have commented that it is a little larger. Really? How much larger?

Enough that my GF, who doesn't know I've used them, has commented on the difference. It might just be the "rock hardness", so there's not as much give to it, though.

You should be good -well into your 70's- definitely


My husband will have some struggles. I just want to say here , some men are blessed with more TEST than others--like Roymcavoy .... it is just LIFE, what God gave us -my husband has never been a very aggressive man to begin with (High test = aggressive many times), he has never been a pound over 160, always thin/fit (one reason I find him so attractive) , he works a blue collar job with lots of exercise.

He was even doing the weight lifting for a time, I can't say it made any overt changes in his sexual fitness. Noone can't say this wife didn't try, or him - even got this book about it , we copied some of those pages, he did those curls, etc faithfully for a time >> Amazon.com: Built for Sex: The Complete Fitness and Nutrition Program for Maximum Performance (9781579549787): Scott Hays: Books

I also had him taking Tongcat Ali for a spell -caused his skin to react-where he couldn't stand my touch, that was the end of that !! Horny Goat weed -didn't notice a difference.

I try to watch his diet, he claims I feed him cardboard sometimes , but he eats it anyway, cause he knows It is purely out of love - and his own well being.

Bums me out he needs a little boost now & then, but it is what it is. I can live with this.
