Two of the most common problems are premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. Premature ejaculation is not being able to hold in your ejaculate long enough to bring pleasure to your partner. Erectile dysfunction is when a man cannot get an erection or can not hold an erection long enough to follow through the sexual act. These can be very big problems in a mans life. According to the US National Health and Social Life Survey 31% of men suffer from erectile dysfunction in one form or another. And half of those men suffering are also suffering from premature ejaculation as well.
In South Africa, these figures are even more alarming than the average. They have a much higher figure coming in at more than 60%. There are drugs available to help with the problems all of these men are suffering from, Viagra and other similar pharmaceuticals. Viagra, or sildenafil, is a drug that helps men all around the world with their little problem. Viagra is a type of drug known as a vasodilator. Vasodilators are drugs that are taken and help to open up and widen the arteries and larger veins.
When the Viagra reaches your blood stream it starts to open these veins and arteries and as they open the veins and arteries in the penis are it allows the penis to taken in more blood and have an even flow so that the penis can become erect and stay erect, thus being a temporary cure for the man’s erectile dysfunction. There are some problems that can occur when taking Viagra, such as having an erection that lasts too long. There are also other positive uses for the drug as well though. Including the previously discussed use, it also can be used to treat pulmonary hypertension, which effects the lungs and the heart. So, it helps in many important areas of the body.
With South Africa’s increased population of men suffering from erectile dysfunction they have a more relaxed system of supplying their citizens with these magical little blue pills. Where in America you have to go to a doctor, get a prescription, then go to the pharmacist and fill it, being embarrassed not once but several times for the process. South Africa makes It much easier for its citizens, you just go to any local store that has medicine and it is available over the counter. Similar to the way you would go get Tylenol or aspirin. There is no line of embarrassments that a man must go through to get these drugs that obviously have a great chance at increasing the quality of their life.
Maybe America should take a cue from South Africa and start making some things available to its citizens without having to navigate your way through the health care system that is in place. We could start with drugs like Viagra, and maybe move on to Cialis, Adcirca, Levitra, and Revatio. Once we get all the erectile dysfunction drugs sold over the counter we can move on to other drugs that shouldn’t need the same process you go through to get narcotics. These drugs should be available to anyone that needs to use them, and they should not have to endure any embarrassment or uncomfortable interactions.
