What happens to my body when taking VIAGRA Connect?

VIAGRA Connect works by relaxing the blood vessels that bring blood into the penis when a man is sexually excited. For men with erectile dysfunction (ED), this allows more blood to flow into the penis to maintain firmer erections. After sexual activity, the erection will go away as normal.

VIAGRA Connect is absorbed quickly and takes between 30 to 60 minutes to work. When taken with a high fat meal, for example burger and chips, the rate of absorption is reduced and VIAGRA Connect will take longer to work.
