MEDICS have come up with a dynamite (excuse the pun) solution for tackling impotence — a gel containing the nitroglycerin.
In trials, rubbing on a pea-sized blob of the gel delivered a positive result within ten minutes for seven in ten men with erectile dysfunction. It works up to 12 times faster than Viagra — used by nearly three million Brits. The rub-on gel works by releasing a nitric oxide gas when rubbed in to widen tiny blood vessels — increasing the blood flow to the penis.
Doctors at University College London Hospitals and other centres did trials on more than 220 men with erectile dysfunction. Half had the treatment, while the rest were given a dummy gel. The study found 44 per cent achieved erections within five minutes. For 70 per cent it took less than ten.
Viagra and other impotence pills usually take between 30 minutes and an hour to kick in.
David Ralph, a consultant urologist, said: “Potential advantages include potential for a fast action and ease of use. Their use could be incorporated into sexual foreplay, increasing the level of intimacy between couples.”
