Question: sildenafil citrate, what would happen if I used it?

 Chillo - Mon Feb 25, 2008 8:51 am

Well, its all in the subject name really, I was just curious because I am 17, nearly 18 and I was with my girlfriend watching a film and Viagra was used for a prank but it got us thinking. Sildenafil citrate is for men with problems with erectile dysfunction but I was wondering what would happen if I took it, I'm a sporty young man that doesn't smoke and I just wanted to know if anything bad could happen if I take it. I haven't got an erectile problem or sexual stimulus problem, we simply are curious to see if it has the desired effect of longer sex because I could stay harder for longer, even after I ejaculate! I just feel like I let her down when I ejaculate before she orgasms, which is a real psychological thorn in my brain!
Please could somebody help!
Many thanks, Chillo

User avatar Hello Chillo,

I would advise against taking this medicine if you are not experiencing erectile dysfunction. You are unlikely to get any significant effect if you are not having a problem already. In addition, there can be some significant side effects. Even though the side effects are uncommon they do occur and are not pleasant.

Best wishes.
