  • Blood in semen 3 times after taking viagra
    On three separate occasions, after using Viagra, I had large amounts of blood in my semen. This condition slowed down but each time produced blood in ejaculate for a period of 3 months EACH TIME. I went to a doctor each time, was tested for everything, ultrasounds , prostate, infection, all came back normal. PSA low etc. Each incident I took a Viagra and during sex I ejaculated semen. I waited a month, masturbated and everything was fine,, had sex and there was red blood in my precum. Finally after 3 months it stopped. The second time it occurred I was concerned and went back to the doctor to be told I was fine. The third time, it was directly related to Viagra. I can take Cialis without a problem. No one seems to say it is the Viagra,,, except my body

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Began taking Adderall to treat a recent diagnosis of ADHD - predominantly Hyperactive/Impulsive type, with some tests in the "Extremely Impaired" range. (combined testing resulted from WAIS-IV, CAARS, and IVP). After taking Adderall, the previously occurrence of E.D. that would present occassionally, became far more common-place. To treat that, I take Viagra (anywhere from 25% to 33% of a 100mg pill), as-needed. The Viagra has been used for the past 1-6 months, and this is the 2nd time I've experienced a strong Metallic taste in my mouth while the effects of Viagra are still active in my system.
