Does Viagra Help with Premature Ejaculation? All You Need to Know

If you have poor sexual performance which is caused by ejaculating too early, you need a solution as fast as possible. Viagra is a well-known medication for treating potency problems, but can it help to fight fast ejaculation? Read our detailed guide below.

The Key Effect of Viagra

Viagra works primarily in the genital area. An enzyme which is inhibited by this medication (phosphodiesterase type 5), can be also found in lunges, this is the reason why sildenafil is also a component of another medication, Revatio. This medication was approved to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension in males and females. Several years ago, there was even a scandal in South Korea caused by large purchases of Viagra by the Korean government. Representatives of this state body explained this curious thing by the fact of necessity to treat mountain sickness in officials.

This powerful medication acts directly on the cavernous bodies of the penis, keeping it erect much longer thanks to larger opening of the arteries and maintaining physiological mechanisms that are responsible for normal erection. You need just to take 1 tablet 30-60 minutes before sexual intercourse, the effect will last up to 6 hours.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and Premature Ejaculation

Prevalence of ED is reaching catastrophic numbers nowadays. Such a situation is mainly caused by negative changes in lifestyle, poor physical activity, and improper nutrition. Fortunately, a group of medications called PDE5 inhibitors includes powerful helpers that provide fast symptomatic treatment for patients with impotence. ED often coexists with PE (coming too early), which is described below.

Well, premature ejaculation is also a highly common sexual disorder in men. There are many possible causes of the condition, they often have psychological origin. For example, some patients manage to delay the climax when having sex with a permanent partner but cum too early with new or fortuitous lovers. Physiological premature ejaculation is not rare; it can be caused by some hormonal misbalance. Other organic causes are often associated with transient conditions, such as inflammatory diseases of the urethra and bladder, as well as inflammation of the prostate.

Some people also believe that Viagra helps to fight premature (early) ejaculation. But probably, this effect has a placebic nature, because achieving an erection and orgasming are two different processes. Viagra can definitely provide some help if you are suffering erectile dysfunction and you cannot last longer due to this condition. However, if you have only fast ejaculation, this medication probably won’t help.

Nevertheless, some scientists are investigating a potential role of sildenafil for treating premature ejaculation, even without ED, this issue is still debated as reported by E. Fernandez-Pascual, P. Krishnappa et al. (International Journal of Impotence Research, March 2019).

viagra and dapoxetine

Is There a Way Out?

There is the only drug specifically designed for treating premature ejaculation in men. Its international generic name is dapoxetine. This pharmaceutical substance works by suppressing serotonin transporter, thereby enhancing the action of serotonin. This helps to prolong the time it takes to have an ejaculation.

Some pharmacies also offer Super Kamagra, a combined medication by Indian company Ajanta Pharma (a generic viagra manufacturer), which contains sildenafil (100 mg) and dapoxetine (60 mg). Actually, this is 2 in 1 product that would help to combat both disorders. But the issue of combining these pharmaceutical components in one medicine requires additional research. So it is better to choose Priligy or Vriligy (brand names of dapoxetine) with pure dapoxetine, and take it, trying to ensure a safe interval between intake of two drugs (the second is Viagra, as you might have guessed).

Several years ago, Mike Wyllie, one of researchers who worked on Viagra invention, presented a spray which tackles early ejaculation. For some reason, the remedy hasn’t gained big popularity since its introduction.

Besides medication therapy, natural methods may also be helpful. Men can try the so-called ‘pause-squeeze’ and ‘stop-start’ techniques. A sufficient level of cooperation and understanding between partners are needed to successfully apply these techniques. In addition, plant-based supplements may provide a substantial help, in particular, passionflower, sandalwood, and linden have been proven to have some efficiency.
