For couples that can’t have a baby because the man has erectile dysfunction, Viagra can be a useful treatment and could help lead to conception. It’s easily available and may solve the sexual problem that caused the infertility.

About Viagra

When there is talk about Viagra, the conversation is generally laced with amusement. Most patients (and doctors) feel it’s of use only to men who are sexually dysfunctional. However, the fact is that it can be quite useful for some infertile couples. This is because there is a very close link between sexuality and fertility.

Consummating the marriage

There are some couples who aren’t able to have a baby because of sexual dysfunction.  The erectile dysfunction keeps them from having a baby as they can’t really consummate the marriage. Since they are childless, that stress becomes another factor that compounds the existing sexual problem and makes the situation worse. Because this is essentially an embarrassing problem to deal with, they just don’t attempt to seek medical help for it and with time, the problem only worsens.

Seeking medical help

In most cases, it’s only when they are pressurized by the growing tension between them (caused by them not being able to have a baby), and they are about to reach breakpoint that these couples consider seeking medical help. Interestingly, their intention behind seeking help isn’t  to solve the medical problem, but rather to simply bypass the condition and start their family- in most instances, this is done using artificial insemination.

When stress makes its presence felt

Most couples who are having difficulty with getting pregnant, will be advised by their  doctor to have "scheduled" sex; and most find this extremely stressful. It simply means that when even under normal circumstances they may not have too much difficulty in having sex, when they are asked to do so at a specific time, they are unable to.

Producing sperm on demand

Most men who are asked to produce sperm “on demand, for testing or for treatment tend to find it very difficult to produce the sample. As a matter of fact, many doctors are able to recollect instances wherein the entire IV cycle had to be cancelled because the man was unable to produce a sperm sample in the clinic.

It’s important to note that for most of these men, erectile problems are just psychological, as it is induced by anxiety. Viagra can be a very helpful for these men. Today, a number of Indian pharma companies have begun manufacturing sildenafil citrate (brand name- Edegra), which is the Indian equivalent of Viagra, is now is available in India for only fraction of the price of the latter

Summary

There is a very close link between sexuality and fertility. For couples who can’t have a baby because the male partner has erectile dysfunction, Viagra can prove to be a useful treatment that could help in conception. Source: http://hotcanadianpharmacy.com/drugs/Viagra+Generic/.
