Tadalafil for erectile dysfunction – what should you know
If you are a man over 40, you probably have already heard about erectile dysfunction if you haven’t encountered this diagnosis yourself. Indeed, it is a very widespread disorder that occurs in 52% of men during their lifetime. Fortunately, today we have medications that help to cope with the condition and have a normal sex life at any age. Let’s discuss in detail what erectile dysfunction is and how it can be treated with Tadalafil.
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is a modern name for a condition that had been previously known as impotence. The term was changed due to the negative connotation of the word impotence. The condition is characterized by a persistent inability of a man to develop and maintain an erection sufficient enough for complete intercourse.
As you know, an erection occurs when a man is aroused, and normally it lasts till ejaculation during intercourse or masturbation. However, in erectile dysfunction, a man can be unable to achieve a full erection, i.e., the penis doesn’t become hard enough. Or alternatively, erection can fade during intercourse before ejaculation, i.e., the penis becomes flaccid even if a man is still aroused and hasn’t reached an orgasm yet.
Today, the pharmaceutical industry offers an array of drugs aimed at alleviating the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Or, more precisely, ensure that when aroused, a man develops and maintains an erection long enough to please their partner and achieve an orgasm. One of such medications is Tadalafil. It is an unpatented name of the active substance that can be sold under a variety of names. For example, you can buy Tadalafil as Cialis.
What are the causes of erectile dysfunction?
The causes of erectile dysfunction are divided into two groups – physiological and psychological.
Physiological or physical causes are the most common ones. They are basically any physical health conditions, traumas, or medications that a person takes that cause the inability to develop an erection. As the condition is prevalent in men over 40, and especially over 60, we can safely say that the primary reasons are such conditions as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, chronic inflammatory diseases, heart diseases, and other conditions that develop as we age. Especially these conditions and physiological erectile dysfunction is relevant for men who generally have led an unhealthy lifestyle. For example, smokers, frequent alcohol consumers, those who have a poor diet, excess weight, do not undergo regular medical checkups, and so on.
Psychological causes of erectile dysfunction are more common in younger men. They include insecurities, fear of failure, and a lot of other emotional and mental conditions and symptoms. For example, if a man suffers from generalized anxiety or depression, they are more likely to develop psychological erectile dysfunction. Although their problem is in their head, so to speak, they can still buy Tadalafil ad use it as an aid for erectile dysfunction.
How is erectile dysfunction treated?
The only way to really cure the condition is to eliminate the root cause. However, as you understand, in most cases, it is impossible. You can only improve the symptoms if you start leading a healthier life and refuse medications that can cause erectile dysfunction as a side effect. In this case, you can improve your sex life without any medications. However, if this doesn’t solve the problem completely, or you want to reinsure yourself, you can still buy Tadalafil and use it. The thing is that the effect of the medication is symptomatic and short-lived. It wears out within several hours. But it improves the blood inflow to your genitalia, which ensures a stable erection when you are aroused.
The treatment of psychological erectile dysfunction is based on psychotherapy and the right diagnostics. Since a man with such a condition doesn’t have any physical problems such as impaired blood circulation, to solve their problem, they need to overcome a mental block or a mental condition that causes erectile dysfunction. However, as I have already mentioned, they can still use Tadalafil. In this case, the drug plays a role of a catalyst, i.e., first of all, it facilitates the physical occurrence of erection. Secondly, when a man who fears failure takes such medicines, they feel more secure, so the underlying problem of their problem is temporarily eliminated.
How does Tadalafil help with erectile dysfunction?
Tadalafil, mostly known as Cialis, which is a registered trade name, is a medication that temporarily increases blood inflow to the penis when a man is aroused or stimulated. It works by relaxing specific muscles in the penis that are found only there and in a small share in the lungs but nowhere else in the body, so the drug acts locally. Once these muscles, or more precisely, smooth muscles that inline the penis, are relaxed, they allow blood to easier circulate through the blood vessels since those are no longer constricted. This makes the achievement and maintenance of erection much easier, whatever caused it.
How to take Tadalafil?
Tadalafil doesn’t need to be taken constantly. A single pill is taken before you plan on intimacy. The best time to take the pill is from one hour to forty minutes before intercourse. This is the time the drug’s components get into the bloodstream and start rendering their effect.
You should not be scared that an erection can occur spontaneously when you take Tadalafil. It indeed facilitates the development of erection, but only if you are aroused or stimulated.
The effect of the drug lasts from 6 hours, depending on your metabolism. If you plan on the honeymoon and want to be ready for intercourse at any time, you can take a smaller dosage, 5 mg of Tadalafil once a day for several days. In this case, you will enjoy up to 36 hours of the effect.
The medication is relatively safe but has certain contraindications for use and also possible side effects. Therefore, I strongly recommend you read the guide on the drug on our website or the official drug manufacturer’s website before you buy Tadalafil and start using it.
