How Long Will It Take For Gels To Work For Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction gels containing drugs like alprostadil are said by the manufacturer to work within five to 30 minutes after administration. The effect is likely to last one to two hours, but actual duration varies with the individual. Because a possible side effect is mild vaginal burning or itching, Vitaros recommends using a water-based lubricant to ease possible side effects for the female partner.

Intimacy gels like Ignite Intimate Gel are designed for sexual enhancement and lubrication rather than erectile dysfunction. These water-based gels can be used in conjunction with an ED gel to aid lubrication and help increase sexual response.
