Stendra is also our top choice for couples who enjoy morning sex. Why? Tadalafil taken in the morning can sometimes require about an hour before it is fully effective. This experience with tadalafil varies — some men find tadalafil to be effective for a full 36 hours (which would make the prior morning’s dose still effective), while others find its effects wear off in closer to 18 hours. If you are in the latter camp, Stendra will be better for your morning rituals because you can take a dose as you wake up and then be ready for fun in as little as 15 minutes. .

Some companies tailor their supplements to target ED and increase sex drive and performance. Unfortunately, you have to shop very carefully because these can be highly sketchy products from disreputable companies.

How Does Viagra Work? Penile erections occur when blood vessels that carry blood to the penis increase in size and deliver more blood to the penis, and blood vessels that carry blood away from the penis decrease in size and remove less blood from the penis.Sexual stimulation causes the production and release of nitric oxide in the penis, which causes an enzyme, guanylate cyclase, to produce cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) that is responsible for increasing and decreasing the size of blood vessels carrying blood to and from the penis and causing an erection.When cGMP is destroyed by the phosphodiesterase-5 enzyme, an erection ends. Viagra prevents phosphodiesterase-5 from destroying cGMP so cGMP stays around longer, which leads to a more prolonged erection.

Medical risk factors for ED include diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular conditions (e.g., hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, atherosclerosis, and a recent history of myocardial infarction), pituitary/gonadal dysfunction, anemia, and renal/hepatic failure. Psychogenic causes can include depression and anxiety. Besides, medications may be a causal factor in which ~25% of cases of ED are caused by either prescription or over-the-counter medications. Drugs used socially such as nicotine, alcohol (in excess), and other recreational drugs also increase the prevalence of organic ED (2).
L-arginine opens or widens the blood vessels to improve the blood flow to the penis and hence improve erectile dysfunction. But, there are some side effects associated with this like nausea, cramps, and diarrhea.
Erectile dysfunction is a frustrating condition where your penis cannot get or maintain an erection firm enough for sex. There is no specific treatment to reverse damage to blood vessels caused by diabetes, there are several options to help you have erections.
Recent studies show that ED is relatively uncommon among men who eat a traditional Mediterranean diet, which includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, heart-healthy fats including nuts and olive oil, fish, and wine, particularly red.
What causes ED? There are many causes of impotence both medical and psychological. Often, age is a predominant factor in erectile dysfunction; however, your chronological age is not solely responsible for ED’s development. Men over the age of 40 typically experience ED as the result of inadequate blood flow to the penis, most often due to the narrowing of blood vessels. This can arise due to many causes including:
