Viagra good for extreme performance anxiety?

male, 31 years old, have been to the doctor and eliminated physical problems. When I first engage in a sexual act with a new partner, I am extremely nervous and afraid of messing it up, that I can't get an erection 90% of the time. After I do manage to get it up to have sex a time or two, I never have another problem with that person, so I know its pyschological problem. I have this new partner, that I don't want to mess this one up and not perform. Will viagra help me out? and the worst case of performance anxiety, will viagra help?

Re: Viagra good for extreme performance anxiety?

I don't think Viagra is effective for that condition. I have read it's not an erection on demand type drug. I have heard that Viagra works when a man is already sexually aroused but can't obtain an erection. That happens I think when a man is older and the arteries that supply blood to the penis are blocked or have a certain amount of blockage. Viagra is supposed to dilate the arteries if I'm not mistaken.

I have also heard of young men using Viagra as an erection enhancer. Younger men who can acheive an erection with no problem use it becuase it is supposed to drastically enhance the firmness of the erection.

All in all I don't think Viagra will work if you're not sexually stimulated. I don't know about you, but if you're nervous and can't perform, you're probably not sexually excited.

Not sure if this is late...but thought I would give you some wisdom from my experience with Viagra.

Like you I had performance anxiety when engaging or trying to engage in intercourse. As a result I would often keep my sexual relationships to oral, with very little to no penetration. It was easy for me to figure out that it was more psycological because there was never a problem while masterbating or for that matter while receiving oral. It was when the time came to penetrate her that the issue arose (no pun intended!!)

Early in the relationship with my future wife I had a failed first try. It was awful. I'm sure you can relate to how I feel...it sounds like you've been there. At that point I saw my doctor. Sure enough everything seemed to be working fine, it was my mind that was playing tricks. My doctor did prescribe Viagra...never a problem since! Now, I still use it regularly, but more so because it has become a sure fire way of ensuring everything is going to work fine. Strangely enough, I still have anxeity before having sex with my wife and if I do not use it, cannot be guaranteed that I will get hard.
I don't love the fact that I have to use it regularly, but that is a better feeling than that awful night where things didn't work when I really wanted them to.

Take it properly and things will work fine. I have it usually a hour or two before I think sex will happen (sometimes I guess wrong and end up having an errection while trying to sleep, but nobody said life was easy, right!). The directions recommend about half an hour, but I figure it is well into my system if I take the extra time. I also try to refrain from eating while it is in my system...and if I do, it is only low fat type products...maybe an apple or something (stay away from grapefruit or swallowing your gum...that is some free advice!). I have a 100mg tablet and cut it into 4-5 pieces...so we are not talking about a lethal amount here...just enough to make sure the general will salute!!! Besides, Viagra is not cheap, so if you can take the four tablet package and make it 16-20 pieces you are laughing!

Side effects...a bit - sometimes I get a bit of a headache, sometimes I feel like my eyes are a tad blurred (but I do wear glasses so who knows on that one), a little stuffy and almost always a bit flushed (looks like I have just been running on the treadmill for 20 min or so). But let me assure you, these symptoms are minor, minor, minor!! They in no way effect the mood or my desires.

Stigmas...as I said, I am not a lover of having to take it. I am only 34 (been using it for about 2-3 years) so I would have guessed that all parts would still be working fine at this point in my life! Every once in a while you hear a Viagra joke or an ED joke (only my wife knows I use it) and you laugh along so as not to stand out in the crowd. But back in my head I am thanking Pfizer for its creation...so let someone laugh. Let's face it, if we were all equal the Yankees starting rotation would be quite full, right! My life is generally pretty normal, and quite comfortable, so what is a little stigma if it means great sex with my wife! Besides, the erections I have are quite hard and quite full...now I am not saying I am a porn stud by any means, but it does offer a bit of extra confidence!

Sorry for the long answer, but hopefully this will help. As for worrying about it working...I can testify that even when scared, if used properly it will happen. It really takes the thinging and more important the anxiety out of the situation!
