The physiological cause of the men’s menopause is the age-related changes in hormonal and general metabolism, under which the functions of the sexual glands disappear. As a rule, “menopause” begins at men who have reached fifty years. The process itself is less painful and noticeable than that of women. Given that aging occurs to each person individually, the symptoms of menopause manifest themselves in different ages and with varying degrees of severity. The very term “male menopause” or “climax” is rather popular; specialists at first called this process an andropause.
However, the age-related changes do not always completely suppress the reproductive function, as in the female case. As a rule, the level of hormones in men gradually becomes lower, and therefore soon the term “andropause” was replaced by another, more appropriate, and this process was called “partial androgen deficiency of older men.” This concept is a more accurate reflection of those hormonal changes that occur in the body of a senior man. How does the given climacteric manifest itself? Males can observe different variants of menopause manifestation. For example, many people note sharp mood swings the presence of lethargy, apathy, irritability, anxiety, anxiety or depressive state, loss of interest in life. Often men suffer from a headache in the nape of the neck; memory is impaired, the man becomes inattentive, hardly concentrates on the processes. There are also complaints of high or low blood pressure, excessively frequent heartbeats, excessive sweating. At the same time, the skin grows much faster, the muscles become more flabby, and the weight of the body increases due to fatty tissue. The most severe symptoms of menopause include a decrease in sexual desire and the development of erectile dysfunction. These problems are accompanied by the frequent urge to urinate and reduce the very pressure of the jet. Luckily, there are drugs aimed at combating males climax.
Levitra is one of them. It is used to treat erectile dysfunction. The active substance is Vardenafil.
It is taken in the dosage of 20 mg per day. Over time, depending on the individual characteristics of the body may reduce or increase the dose.
Take the medication no more often than once a day for 25-60 minutes (sometimes 4-5 hours) before the planned sexual contact. Use the drug regardless of food intake. But you should pay attention to the fact that excessively fatty food weakens the effect of Vardenafil. If you take Levitra with food containing less than 30% fat, then it does not affect the effect of Vardenafil. If the food contains more than 57% fat, then the rate of absorption of the active substance decreases. Alcohol doesn’t affect the action of the drug.
How does it Work?
In the process of sexual stimulation, the nerve endings of the cavernous bodies of the penis secrete nitric oxide which activates the action of the enzyme guanylate cyclase that increases the concentration of cyclic guanosine monophosphate and relaxes the smooth muscles of the penis. All these processes cause blood flow to the penis and its erection.
Under the influence of Levitra, type 5 phosphodiesterase is blocked, the action of which is directed to the cleavage of cyclic guanosine monophosphate which leads to an intensification of the reaction in response to sexual stimulation (excitation does not occur without it). The ability to block the enzyme phosphodiesterase is ten times higher than that of Viagra and 13 times higher than that of Cialis.
If taken on an empty stomach, the maximum concentration of active substance in the blood is reached after a quarter of an hour. But in most cases it will take 30-120 minutes.
The action of the drug begins even before reaching the maximum concentration. If you take 10 or 20 milligrams, after 10 minutes, 34 and 40% of men get an erection, which allows them to successfully start and finish intercourse. After 25 minutes, a similar result is obtained by 50% of men. Levitra operates for 8-12 hours. In 92% of men, the first dose of the drug normalizes the erectile function, while 74% have an erection that makes it possible to successfully have sexual intercourse.
Levitra, unlike most other similar remedies, helps even those men whose impotence is caused by obesity, hypertension, and diabetes.
