There are many treatments now available for the treatment of waning sexual potency: the best known is Viagra. It was hailed as the answer to a failing man’s prayer but it can’t be used by everyone to pep up their libido. It has side effects and for it to be effective a man’s equipment must be in moderately good working order.

Health Requirements

For starters, the blood vessels and nerves in the penis must be intact, otherwise no form of medication could bring about an erection. And the heart and blood pressure must be close to normal.

With these provisos, men with the following conditions may experience an improvement in their sexual performance by taking Viagra: diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, poliomyelitis, prostate cancer, prostatectomy, radical pelvic surgery, renal failure treated by dialysis or transplant, severe pelvic injury, single gene neurological disease, spinal cord injury and spina bifida.

Does it work?

Viagra isn’t a miracle cure. In the original research, almost half of the subjects had better erections than previously, erections sufficient to allow penetrative sex, but not the rigidity of youth. Half did not.
