Hello and Thank you for your response, I took 50mg of Viagra. It was not prescribed and I had never taken it before. I took it for fun and acquired from someone who had it prescribed. I had normal erectile function before hand. My erection lasted around 3 hours and subsided after ejaculation. My erection was slightly painful, but I'd describe it more as uncomfortable due to the strength of the erection. I did not injure my penis during to use of this drug. Kind Regards XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
