Welcome to Health Care Magic

Poor erection or difficulty in achieving full erection is a common problem in males. It may occur due to poor libido or due to psychological causes. But fortunately it can be improved-

- Medicines like Phosphodiesterase inhibitors as Sildenafil, Tadalafil, Verdanafil etc are commonly available. They are usually advised to be taken about 2 hour before intercourse. These medicines help in achieving full erection.

- Yohimbin is available in a number of supplements and it is a good drug to increase libido as well as erection. It is a safe drug but may occasionally cause increase in blood pressure.

- If you want to go in natural drugs you can use Fenugreek seeds. Some studies have reported that these seeds cause improvement in libido and cures erectile dysfunction. These are safe and should be taken about 300 mg per day. Fenugreek leaves should be used in salads.

- Try to devote at least 1 hour of your time in doing exercise and yoga. Exercise releases endorphins which improves libido.

Hope I cleared your doubt, if you have more questions you can ask again.

Hello again

Viagra contains sildenafil. It is available with most of chemists. You are young so there is no harm in taking it. Before starting drug hypertension should be ruled out in any patient, otherwise it is a safe drug and mild headache may occur with this drug. 50-100 mg dose should be taken about 1-2 hour before intercourse. It has proven efficacy in erectile dysfunction.

If you have more queries you can ask again.
