Several decades in a row, Viagra works as a savior of man’s self-esteem, because success in sexual life is a part of happiness of every man. Viagra fulfills its task excellently! Medication properties of this preparation allow a man to forget about problems with erection and to satisfy with sexual life again and again. In our days there appeared a new, modern medicine called Levitra, it is a preparation of new generation, it works the same as well-known Viagra, but Levitra is long-lasting medicine. However, when we talk about Viagra, it is worthy to note that this medicine has many popular myths concerning its properties. Let’s find out – what is real true and what are myths.

Myth 1: Viagra generates sexual attraction

There is a big difference between the physiological process of erection and sexual attraction. Viagra does not influence on increasing of sexual attraction. The action of the medicine begins during natural sexual attraction and influences on the blood flow to the penis. Viagra does not irritate the neurons of the brain and is responsible only for the appearance of erection and its support on the proper level for some period.

Myth 2: Viagra is the most effective a medicine for erectile dysfunction treating

Erectile dysfunction can have many reasons. They are physiological causes, pathological disease, consequences of genital injuries. Psychological reason is stress. External reasons are the environment, smoking, alcoholism, poor diet. Each of these factors is to be revealed by a physician, after it the doctor will prescribe the treatment. Viagra can recover sexual power in a certain period of time, but the medicine does not work as a panacea. Therefore, before to use the preparation see your doctor to determine the dosage of medicine and to identify the causes of ED.

Myth 3: Viagra protects against sexually transmitted diseases

It is not true. Only the condom is the only strong protection against sexually transmitted diseases. So if a man takes Viagra or not, he should always remember about safer sex, his and his partner’s health.

Myth 4: Viagra is a contraceptive

Sildenafil helps man to recover erection. This is the main and the only function of this medicine. The preparation has no attitude to contraception. There are other contraceptive medicines, one of which, is  a condom.

Myth 5: Instant erection by taking Viagra

Viagra sildenafil is intended for rapid but not instant appearance of an erection. After taking the medicine it passes from 15 to 30 minutes. Intake of Viagra does not mean an instant erection – it is a very popular myth.

Myth 6: Viagra helps every man with ED

What is the reason that Viagra does not help all the men with ED? Erectile dysfunction is caused by many psychological and organic causes, as well as hormones, in particular low level of testosterone. A fifth of men, after forty years of age, suffer from erectile dysfunction, it is resulted with low level of testosterone. In such case, hormone therapy will help, but not Viagra.

25 years is an age of peak hormone level. In subsequent years the level of hormone reduces. And it is a natural process, although, as it is pointed out by many doctors, testosterone level may be an indication of illnesses: diabetes, cardiovascular disease. In such cases, the treatment of the disease is necessary.

If a man, who has problems with potency, did not feel the positive effects of Viagra, then he needs to clarify his diagnosis. It is necessary to visit a doctor to find the true cause of ED and to prescribe adequate treatment. May be it will be batter to use stronger stimulant, for example, Levitra, but anyway, you need to visit your doctor.
