I am 37 Yrs old. I dont know if it is truly an ED problem. I did have some issues at work and business where I went thru a lot of stress.

Now, my stress levels have reduced a bit. But, some times, I have trouble having an erection and get so frustrated. We want to have a baby and I am thinking if i can take Viagra to maintain the erection. Will taking this pill have any side effects on my sperm quality. All we want is a baby and we are very desperate about it. Any inputs..

Anon..... The Viagra or other such drugs only let the veins and artries to open more than normal allowing more blood to go to such places as the penis. It will not make an erection with out stimulation. No damage to sperm. PA
