Hims Sildenafil

hims sildenafil

Hims is aggressively promoting the idea that a healthy sex life is one where erections occur on demand and last as long as you want yet in their attempt to help men sidestep awkward conversations about erectile embarrassment, hims is aggressively promoting the idea that a healthy sex life is one where erections occur on demand and last as long as you want. that’s a message some sexual health professionals find disturbing. hims might help you maintain your erection, but it won’t help you understand your body, your sexuality, or give you a more expansive understanding of pleasure. destigmatizing men’s erectile woes is a noble mission, but the company’s claim that it’s “weird” to leave a frustratingly flaccid member unmedicated does far more harm than good.

Although many of us assume that instantly hard, long lasting erections are not just desirable, but a sign of healthy, “normal” sexuality, the reality is much more complicated. chris donaghue, author of sex outside the lines: authentic sexuality in a sexually dysfunctional culture, tells me that much of what we label “dysfunctional” about erectile performance is just a natural part of getting older. “when you’re in your forties, you should expect erectile frustration about 40 percent of the time,” says donaghue, noting that the figure increases about 10 percent with each passing decade. “that’s healthy. that’s not a disorder. that’s normal.”

sildenafil is a prescription medication — one that has side effects

Also, sildenafil is a prescription medication — one that has side effects. Painful, hours-long erections occasionally land users in the hospital (and, in the worst cases, destroy their ability to ever get an erection again). But headaches, loss of vision, indigestion, and diarrhea are also fairly common; rarer side effects include facial swelling, renal problems, laryngitis, and, perversely, an inability to experience orgasm.

Those are just the physical side effects; mental ones can occur, too. Using sildenafil regularly can cause a kind of disconnection, where the erection isn’t tied to the “emotional/psychological arousal state,” but is instead fueled by chemical assistance, Donaghue says. That disconnection can drive an even bigger wedge between men and their emotions, and making users who crave an easy, automatic erection further dependent on medication.

Hims is bringing hair loss and erectile dysfunction solutions to a more youthful customer.

One such company is Roman, which is aimed solely at the ED market. Roman allows a man to create an account online and get a virtual consultation for the suitability to use medications such as Sildenafil, Tadalafil, or Vardenafil. The online consultation with a Roman provider takes about 5 minutes and costs $15. The patient is charged for the cost of the therapy and then mailed the prescription in custom, discreet packaging. The cost of treatment ranges from $2 to $63 per dose, according to the company's website. The service is available in California, Florida, New York, and Pennsylvania. Another company, Hims, offers services targeted at hair loss, skin treatment, and ED. Hims offers Sildenafil at $20 for 10 tablets, following an online consultation with one of the company's providers.

Either way, it makes sense for Pfizer to have performance anxiety

For 20 years, Viagra has been the flagship ED treatment in big pharma, with Pfizer’s little blue pill bringing tens of billions of dollars in revenue since its launch in 1998. But soon, Pfizer’s patent on Viagra is set to expire, giving companies like Hims free rein to sell the generic version of Sildenafil — the drug used to treat ED for a much cheaper price. Now, men of all ages are coming out of the woodwork, and Pfizer is feeling a little impotent.
