Taking Kamagra For The First Time; What To Expect

If you feel unsure about what to expect when taking Kamagra for the first time, it’s fully understandable. I bet you are scared out of your mind. But, there is no need for you to be scared especially if Kamagra has been prescribed to you by a physician.

However, to put your mind at rest and get you prepared, I am going to be writing on what you are to expect when you take Kamagra.

If you don’t already know, Kamagra is a brand name for sildenafil. Sildenafil acts as an inhibitor to the enzyme phosphodiesteras-type 5 (PDE5). This enzyme is responsible for deactivating cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), a cyclic nucleotide that helps the muscle of the penis relax for easy flow of blood. In men with erectile dysfunction, the amount of cGMP produced is so small that it gets deactivated by PDE5 as fast as it is produced resulting in the inability of the penis to maintain firmness. Sildenafil contained in Kamagra inhibits PDE5, allowing cGMP to accumulate.

What to expect

Kamagra does not directly cause erection. Therefore, unless there is a sexual stimulation to activate the whole process, there is no need to worry that Kamagra will cause an uncontrollable erection.

You have to be relaxed for Kamagra to work as you expect. This is because; your nerve endings are responsible for secreting the nitric oxide that activates cGMP. If your nerves are not relaxed, nitric acid will not be secreted and the whole system will not be activated.

Kamagra will work best when taken on an empty stomach. This does not mean that it will not work if taken with meal. But to be on a safe side, it is best without meal. This is because; food items that have high fat will slow down the metabolism of sildenafil and delay absorption into the blood stream.

Taking more than one dose of Kamagra in a day in an attempt to increase its effect will only put you at risk of very fatal side effects. Kamagra should be taken under the directives of a physician.

The effect of Kamagra does not manifest immediately you take it. It may take about 30 to 60 minutes for it to be absorbed into the blood stream and for the level of cGMP to increase to the point of giving you an erection. So, you are advised to take Kamagra about 30 minutes before sexual activity.

How long Kamagra remains in the blood depends on the individual. For some people it may last about 2 hours, for others it may extend up to 5 hours. This does not mean that your penis will remain erect for that long. It means that within this period, your penis may become hard if sexually stimulated.

You should also know that Kamagra has been found to have some side effects. While some of these side effects may be mild, some are fatal. Some of the mild side effects that you may experience are; heart burn and headache. However, adverse side effects such as prolonged erection, hearing and vision loss, are mostly as a result of interactions with drugs. If you experience any of these, it is important that you report immediately to a hospital.
