The first time being with a new partner always carries some extra nerves. I've been in the dating world for a few months now, and it has taken some getting used to. I've never struggled consistently with performance in the bedroom, but my problem seemed to become more frequent as I've gotten older. It was becoming difficult to maintain an erection with a new partner, and this was really starting to affect my overall confidence. But the idea of explaining my performance problems to my doctor just did not seem worth it, until I met a new girl, and we really seemed to click. The first time we made it to the bedroom, I had some serious problems performing, even though I was mentally into it. She was very understanding, but it was a big blow to the ego. I needed to find a way to address this problem that I'd been ignoring.
I was talking to a buddy about this particularly embarrassing encounter I had, and he mentioned a new company he had just read about in TechCrunch called Roman. They connect men struggling with ED to a licensed doctor and, if appropriate, the doctor will write a prescription for ED medication. It was interesting, but the thought of buying medication online sounded more than a little sketchy to me. I've read crazy stats, like the fact that 80% of all Viagra purchased online is counterfeit and can even contain toxins like paint thinner.
I did a little research and found out that they are associated with some very well known doctors like Dr. Peter Schlegel Professor and Chairman of Urology at The Weill Medical College of Cornell University. They also had very positive stories from TechCrunch, Forbes and Mashable. I then found out that they give up to $50 off the first month's prescription, and decided I had to at least give it a try.
They had me take a ten minute survey to determine if a prescription would be helpful and safe. My information was then securely reviewed by a doctor who decided that generic Sildenafil was perfect for me (and way less expensive than branded Sildenafil aka Viagra). The best part was that I didn't even have to leave my couch. The doctor contacted me with his recommendation within an hour, and I was ready to go. He even insisted that I give him a call if I had any questions or concerns at all once I started on the meds. It felt very secure as I only dealt with the doctor, and didn't need to answer a million questions from nurses and receptionists.
They shipped my medication within two days right to my door. No annoying and potentially awkward trips to the pharmacy. With Roman's introductory discount, the first three months came out to $40, including the cost of the doctors visit, for the medication my doctor and I agree upon. He assured me the generic would work perfectly, and I was surprised at the level of attention I got from a simple online chat.
