One in five Irish men experience erectile dysfunction (ED) regularly.

You can take action to get help. ED symptoms can be treated in most cases.

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

  • Erectile dysfunction is a relatively common condition. If you cannot get or keep an erection firm enough for sex, you may have a medical condition called erectile dysfunction, also known as ED.
  • Although ED can affect men of all ages, it’s more common in men over the age of 40.

Men can experience symptoms in different ways:

  • Some cannot achieve an erection.
  • Others may achieve an erection, but it's not firm enough for having sex.
  • Or they may lose the erection before or during sex.

For some men with ED, it can be difficult to get or keep an erection every time they try to have sex.

ED is a common medical condition that has nothing to do with masculinity.

What causes ED?

The main physical cause of ED is not enough blood flowing into the penis, so a man cannot get and keep an erection when he is sexually excited. This happens because the small blood vessels that supply the penis during an erection become blocked or narrow.

Smoking, high cholesterol and lack of exercise can cause this problem, as can high blood pressure and diabetes. ED can sometimes be an early warning sign of underlying health conditions, even if you feel healthy.

While not all men with ED will have other health problems, it is always best to talk to a pharmacist or see your doctor who can fully assess your health and treat any condition you might have that could be causing ED symptoms.

WHAT IS VIAGRA CONNECT®?

Viagra Connect® is a treatment for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) containing 50mg of sildenafil.

It is available to patients over 18 years with ED directly from pharmacy without a doctor’s prescription.

How do I know if VIAGRA connect® is right for me?

Men who are unsure if their erection problems are symptoms of ED can benefit from talking discreetly with a pharmacist.

The pharmacist will not give you a physical examination or ask you personal questions about your sex life – they will just ask you a few questions about:

  • Your general physical health
  • Any medicine you might be taking
  • Any health conditions you may have

This is to confirm that you have ED and to decide if VIAGRA connect® is suitable for you.

If VIAGRA connect® is right for you, the pharmacist will explain how to take it correctly for the best results. You should also see your doctor as soon as possible within 6 months of your first purchase of VIAGRA connect® to get a health check-up.

If VIAGRA connect® isn’t right for you, where appropriate, the pharmacist will refer you to your doctor, who can discuss alternative treatment options with you in more detail.

Who cannot take VIAGRA connect®?

  • Men under 18 years of age
  • Women

  • Men taking certain medications
  • Men with certain health conditions
  • Men allergic to any of the ingredients in VIAGRA connect®
