Cialis and its multiple health benefits

Cialis differs from other similar medicines, because it helps not only against erectile dysfunction. Tadalafil is also taken to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia. Therapy causes the muscles of the prostate and bladder to relax, which decreases the following symptoms: frequent and painful feeling of needing to urinate, feeling of having a full bladder.

Ttadalafil improves the erectile function of the penis, increasing the flow of blood in the vessels of the pelvis. This happens thanks to the suppression of the phosphodiesterase 5 enzyme. This effect creates an accumulation of nitric oxide, which stimulates the production of cGMP, a substance decreasing the tone of the blood vessel walls. After that, arterial vessels widen and fill with blood. Note that the drug does not intensify libido and works only if a natural desire is present, following sexual arousal.

Cialis effects on fertility

The drug does not affect fertility. Precisely for this reason it is recommended for couples who wish to have children. In addition, tadalafil helps to recover strength after a sexual act much faster, consequently a man can increase their frequency and decrease the intervals between them. This greatly increases the probability of conceiving a child.

Cialis based on tadalafil 20 mg is taken to remove symtoms of ED for 36 hours. Such a dose should not be taken every day and can be recommended to men who have sex no more than 2 times a week. The long duration of the effect allows you to plan your next sexual experience at your ease, since the pill can be taken much earlier.

Cialis 5 mg is indicated for those who follow an ED treatment. Already after five days of administration, the concentration of active ingredient in the body becomes constant and the man can have sex at any time, regardless of when during the day the pill is taken.
