Sildenafil 100 is a common medication used for several years to stimulate erections in men with erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil citrate is a salt that is used in both branded and generic ED medicines. The branded one is Viagra – the medication firstly approved by FDA for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Generic versions of viagra include Cenforce and Fildena that are as effective as the original branded medication. In this blog, we will discuss how Cenforce 100 works to cure erection problems in men along with its appropriate way of administration.
What is Cenforce 100?
Cenforce 100 or sildenafil 100 is an effective generic version of viagra that most doctors widely prescribe all over the world. It contains 100 milligrams of sildenafil citrate, which works by increasing the flow of blood in the penile region. Cenforce belongs to the class of PDE-5 inhibitors, which stops the action of PDE-5 enzymes in the body to enhance blood supply in the male reproductive region and induce stiffer and more robust erections. It boosts self-confidence and self-esteem in men, which have long been lost due to their inability to satisfy their partners sexually.

How Does Cenforce 100 Work?
When men take sildenafil 100, their rigid muscles gradually dilate and allow more blood flow. The same mechanism goes with high blood pressure medications, which explains the narrowed down muscles and improves the blood flow throughout the body. When you take one tablet of Cenforce 100 at least thirty minutes before having sexual intercourse, you will be able to get and maintain erections for long enough for a pleasant sexual drive.
An erection occurs through a complex chain of events, involving signals from the nervous system and the liberation of chemical messengers within the tissues of the penis. One of the chemical messengers released when you are sexually aroused is called cyclic GMP. It relaxes and expands the blood vessels of the penis, allowing more blood to get in. It causes the penis to become firm and erect.
Cyclic GMP is usually broken down by an enzyme in the body known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5). Sildenafil 100 works by halting this enzyme from decomposing the cyclic GMP. This enables the blood vessels in the penis to stay inflated for longer, enhancing the blood flow to the penis and helping achieve and maintain an erection.
How Long Does The Effects Of Sildenafil 100 Last?
After taking a dose of sildenafil 100, you will be able to get an erection for about 4-5 hours. Sildenafil 100 will only work once the messengers that are accountable for inducing an erection start to be generated. This implies that you have to be sexually aroused for the drug to achieve and maintain an erection.
You would be able to obtain an erection within 25 minutes to an hour after taking a sildenafil 100 tablet if you are sexually stimulated, for instance, by involving in foreplay.
- Men usually start taking Cenforce from a dosage of 100 mg. This is the standard dosage that works for most men. However, some men may need to start the dosage from 25 mg dosage. We would recommend you to take the least dosage that the doctor prescribes for you.
- Please take your sildenafil 100 one hour before you have planned to have sexual intercourse. It takes about thirty minutes for the drug to start its effects.
- You may take medicine with or without food. But remember, if you take it with or after taking a meal, it will take longer to work. Please swallow the tablet as a whole with a glass of water without breaking or crushing it.
- Do not take Cenforce 100 more than once a day.
- You may require to take different dosages of drugs on different occasions to see what works for you. If you have tried taking a 25 mg dosage of Cenforce on different occasions but found that it’s ineffective for your doctor, consult your doctor. He may scale up the dosage or prescribe you some different medication depending upon your condition. Please don’t increase your dosage without consulting your doctor, as it could cause some adverse side effects.
Things You Should Know Before Taking Cenforce 100 mg.
- Cenforce may make you feel dizzy or impact your vision: You may feel dizzy, or your vision may get impacted for a while after taking the drug; please avoid driving or operating heavy machinery.
- Avoid excessive consumption of alcohol: Alcohol decreases your ability to get and maintain erections and so can make the drug ineffective. As Cenforce can make you feel dizzy, this can get aggravated if you consume alcohol.
- Avoid consumption of grapefruit and its juice: Grapefruit can increase the concentration of sildenafil in your blood and thus elevate the risk of developing side effects.
Who Should Not Take Sildenafil 100?
- People who have certain health conditions in which engaging in sexual activity isn’t advisable should avoid taking sildenafil 100. These conditions include unstable angina, severe heart failure, etc. Talk to your doctor if taking Cenforce and having sex would be safe for you.
- People with hypotension (low blood pressure). This means people with blood pressure lower than 90/50 mmHg.
- People who have had a stroke or a heart attack in the last six months.
- People with severe liver disorders.
- People who take nitrate-containing medicines, including antidepressants, or those used to treat high blood pressure.
- Women should not take Cenforce 100 as it may be inappropriate for them.
- People who have had an allergic response to sildenafil or any other constituents of the medication.

What Are The Side Effects Of Sildenafil 100?
Different medications and their side effects may affect people differently. Many men who take Cenforce pills don’t experience any side effects at all, while some can experience certain side effects. A mild headache is one of the not common side effects and affects more than 1 in 10 people. Other less common side effects include:
- Feeling sick
- Blocked or stuffy nose
- Visual disturbances, including a blue tinge to vision, blurred vision, etc.
Does Sildenafil 100 Interact With Any Other Medication?
Before you start taking Cenforce or any other ED pill, make sure to inform all other medications (if any) you take, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, and herbal medicines. It may be unsafe to take some medicine in combination with ED pills and lead to serious complications.
Sildenafil and nitrates: You must not take sildenafil with any form of nitrate-containing drugs. It may result in a drastic drop in your blood pressure level, causing fainting, dizziness, or even a heart attack. Following are some of the nitrate-containing drugs that should be avoided:
- Amyl nitrate
- Glyceryl nitrate, isosorbide mononitrate, isosorbide dinitrate
Sildenafil and alpha-blockers: If you are taking alpha-blockers for hypertension or an enlarged prostate gland, please talk to your doctor regarding whether talking sildenafil would be appropriate for you. Your healthcare provider will probably start you on a 25 mg dose of sildenafil, as it may increase the blood pressure decreasing the effect of alpha-blockers, and make you feel faint or dizzy. Alpha-Blockers include the following:

Between zoom meetings, webinars, you're walking a tight rope to balance work from home and domestic chores, in all this its easy to forget about taking care of yourself. It's imperative to squeeze in a few hours to indulge in yourself, whether its a massage or a hair spa treatment.
It comes with a range of accessories which includes the 40mm Airwrap long barrels, 30mm Airwra barrels, a Firm smoothing brush, a Soft smoothing brush, a Round volumising brush, the Pre-styling dryer, a non-slip heat-resistant mat to place your styler on, a Storage case and even a Filter cleaning brush. A Storage bag (Iron/Fuchsia) securely stores your Dyson Airwrap when you're on the move.

The different styling attachments cater to unique hair needs and are designed for different hair styles. For instance the 30 mm barrels create and set voluminous curls. With clockwise and counter-clockwise barrels for symmetrical curls. The 40 mm barrels create and set loose curls or waves. The Firm smoothing brush creates a straighter style with less frizz ad fewer flyways, with firm bristles engineered to control unruly, frizz prone hair. The pre- styling dryer takes hair from wet to damp, ready for styling. The round volumizing brush directs air into the hair to give body, and the bristles create tension to shape hair as it dries, Ideal for limp, flat hair. To create a sooth, blow-dry finish. With soft bristles engineered to be gentle on the scalp.
It features three precise airflow speeds, to suit your styling and four precise heat settings, including constant cold shot. The cold shot immediately deactivates the heating element, for cooler air to set your style. The Coanda to curl barrels harness an aerodynamic phenomenon and the Coanda to smooth which uses Dyson brushes to attract hair to the surface of the brush, propelling air along the hair strands for a smooth, straighter style. It's powered by the Dyson digital motor V9, a 13-blade impeller spins at up to 110,000rpm, generating 3.2kPa. Powerful enough to produce the air pressure needed to create the Coanda effect. The intelligent heat control measures airflow temperature over 40 times a second, intelligently controlling the heating element to keep the temperature under a 150 degree Celsius. Preventing extreme heat damage. "Great styling and takes lesser effort than the usual blow drying. Saving lots of visits to the salon, absolutely love it!" says a salon regular who switched her weekly visits to the salon for the at home Dyson experience. (IANS/ MBI)

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.
The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar. The findings could be a significant step toward helping astronomers understand which types of stars are most likely to have planets orbiting them and what that indicates about the building blocks needed for successful planet formation, acoording to the study. "We need to look at a wide range of stars, not just ones like our sun, to understand that," Zink said.
The term "exoplanets" is used to describe planets outside of the solar system. The number of exoplanets that have been identified by astronomers numbers fewer than 5,000 in all, so the identification of hundreds of new ones is a significant advance. Kepler's original mission came to an unexpected end in 2013 when a mechanical failure left the spacecraft unable to precisely point at the patch of sky it had been observing for years.
But astronomers repurposed the telescope for a new mission known as K2, whose objective is to identify exoplanets near distant stars. Data from K2 is helping scientists understand how stars' location in the galaxy influences what kind of planets are able to form around them. (IANS/ MBI)

The winter comes with its own set of hassles. New moms have to be careful because they have to take care of themselves and their babies. It becomes imperative to protect babies from the harsh season. The immune system of newborn babies is developing, which makes them susceptible to respiratory infections. But, you can take preventive measures to keep your child warm and safe. Newborn babies need extra care until their immune system becomes stronger to protect their bodies from the harmful effects of viruses and bacteria that usually become more active in the winter season. A drop in the temperature can aggravate different processes in the body, therefore, moms need to take extra care of newborn babies during winters.
New moms can follow the given tips to take care of their little ones and protect them from the harmful effects of harsh winds blowing outside.
Keep the temperature warm in the baby's room: Use a portable heater in the baby's room to keep the temperature warm. The air becomes dry due to the excessive use of a heater. Therefore, keeping a humidifier to balance the moisture levels.
Apply moisturizer: The baby's skin is very sensitive and the harsh, dry, and cold air can make the skin dry. Therefore, apply a good moisturizer to keep it soft and smooth. Choose a moisturizer made of milk cream and butter, especially for children. This will keep the skin of your baby soft.
Massage: Massage is important to keep your baby's skin soft and healthy. Massage helps to improve the blood circulation in the body that helps in boosting strength. Use a natural oil to massage the body of your child. Make sure the room is warm where you massage the baby.

Avoid using heavy blankets: You can comfort your baby by laying a light blanket to keep your baby warm. Avoid using a heavy blanket to cover your baby during winters because your baby would not be able to move his arms and legs while sleeping. In this process, your baby may pull it up on its face and this can cause respiratory distress. Thus, use a light blanket and keep the room temperature optimum.
Dress your baby comfortably: Choose comfortable dressing for your baby. Avoid wrapping your baby in thick sweaters, gloves, and socks. This will restrict its movement and he/she will become irritable. Choose clothes depending on the room temperature. The clothes should cover his/her baby but should not restrict movement. You can use light gloves and socks to cover your hands and feet to keep your baby warm at night.
Breastfeeding: Breastfeeding is the most important activity that can keep your baby healthy. Breast milk consists of required nutrients and antibodies that will enhance the immune system of your baby and will protect him/her against diseases. During breastfeeding your baby will feel warm and cosy that will also give him comfort.
