Viagra: Myths and Reality

Viagra is a famous drug which is used in the treatment procedures of male impotency. It is the best treatment available for erectile dysfunction. However, the drug goes hand in hand with myths and illogical beliefs of various kinds. This article will outline and clear off all the popular myths which are prevalent about the drug and will present forward the actual facts.

Viagra (generic name ‘Sildenafil Citrate’) is a drug which is popular all across the globe for its capabilities of treating male impotency i.e. erectile dysfunction. The drug is manufactured by Pfizer – a FDA approved pharmaceutical company. The drug is surrounded by numerous myths and misbeliefs and some of them are mentioned below:

Myths related to Sildenafil Citrate:

Myth 1: Sildenafil Citrate has aphrodisiacal properties and can be used as an aphrodisiac.

Reality: Sildenafil Citrate is not absolutely an aphrodisiac drug. It is a drug which can be really very useful in treating erectile dysfunction and related disorders in males.

Explanation: People often think that consuming Sildenafil Citrate can boost their sexual stamina and overall performance on the bed. While this may be true to some extent but it isn’t the entire fact about the drug. Sildenafil by no means is supposed to be consumed as an aphrodisiac. If you are suffering from erectile dysfunction, then even the drug won’t be able to transform you into a charged up sexual superman. Sildenafil Citrate is used worldwide in the treatment processes of erectile dysfunctions and uncontrolled ejaculation. Remember that the drug does not help you gain a firm and lasting erection, it only helps in treating those who can’t attain such a boner.

Myth 2: Sildenafil Citrate helps you last long.

Reality: Sildenafil Citrate can’t help you last long on its own.

Explanation: People often think that it is the drug that helps them last long on the bed but in reality, the drug can’t do it all alone on its own. The drug only acts as a catalyst. There has to be some enticing factor which can keep you on. The drug only backs you up in case you need more horsepower for a super-performance.

Myth 3: Sildenafil Citrate causes sexual stimulation.

Reality: Sildenafil Citrate comes into play when you get sexually stimulated.

Explanation: It’s not the drug that stimulates you and sets you up for a sexual act. In fact, it is the external factors that stimulate you. In the absence of these external factors, even the drug is ineffective. You too will have to play your part well as it’s all about a joint effort. The external factors basically include a whole range of tempting activities performed by your sex partner.

Myth 4: Sildenafil Citrate boosts morale for a sexual activity.

Reality: Sildenafil Citrate helps male gain physical impetus.

Explanation: Though a sexual act may have some sort of mental merger involved, Sildenafil Citrate is all about physical activities. The drug has nothing to do with the mental status of males. The drug improves male sexuality by imparting physical impetus and stamina. However, one may claim that the drug boosts morale indirectly – the drug helps in gaining an efficient erection which in turn enthralls the males. Yet, Sildenafil Citrate has nothing to do with boosting morale in case of sexually regressive and repressive males.

Myth 5: Sildenafil Citrate averts pregnancies and fights STD’s.

Reality: Sildenafil Citrate cannot avert pregnancy and is not a drug to treat STD’s.

Explanation: There’s no answer to where this thought came from. Viagra helps in treating erectile dysfunctions and male impotency. It is not at all an anti-pregnancy pill or a drug to fight off Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s). However, reckless dosage of the drug can cause unwanted pregnancies and STD’s.
