Cenforce is the brand name that sells Sildenafil Nitrate. It is a medication used to treat Erectile Dysfunction (ED) or Impotence in adult men. Sildenafil is included in the class of drug ‘phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors’. It addresses an enzyme related to muscle contraction in the penis. 

ED is treated by this medication by increasing the blood flow to the penis. This happens when a man gets sexually stimulated; a molecule called ‘Nitric Oxide’ is released throughout the body. It tells the blood vessels in the penis to expand and smooth muscles to relax. Hence, the blood flow is increased down there, resulting in an erection. Other psychological and physical factors are also involved in getting or maintaining a fuller erection. 

The medication, Cenforce, comes in the form of a tablet and is to be taken by mouth 30 mins or an hour prior to sexual intercourse. It should not be taken more than once within 24 hours. A person who has certain health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes or penis surgery might be advised by the healthcare provider to avoid taking this medicine. 


Technically speaking, yes, Cenforce can make your penis bigger. But for how long? The answer is that it makes you bigger, but only “temporarily”. 

For Cenforce to work, sexual stimulation is necessary. A flaccid penis requires arousal to get erect. When you are not sexually aroused, Cenforce has no effect on you. However, it allows you to get fuller erection only when you are sexually aroused. 

It is not possible for Cenforce medication to increase your natural penis size permanently; this is the biggest misconception about this drug. The medication makes no claims as such. In fact, there is no such drug approved by FDA to permanently enhance the natural size of the penis. 

However, it can “temporarily make you bigger to its full capacity with the help of sexual stimulation”. Erectile Dysfunction does not allow you to reach your potential. It is not getting as large as it should be. This is where Cenforce comes to help. The drug can help you get satisfied and confident for a specific short period. 

There are some ways by which you can enhance the effects of Cenforce, mostly by making lifestyle changes. These include-

  • Exercising more
  • Quitting smoking 
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Avoiding alcohol.


Men who have Erectile Dysfunction take Cenforce to get an Erection and to prolong it. However, it is important to understand that the drug does not work alone. 

It is important to get aroused first for a larger erection. The medication is not designed to improve your sex drive but to help you enjoy and get rid of multiple failed attempts to get erect. 

Cenforce (active ingredient – Sildenafil) does not help patients with Premature Ejaculation (ejaculating sooner than he would like during sexual intercourse) nor does it help for low libido (decreased interest in sexual activity). 

Cenforce hence will help you gain confidence and reliance in bed. But it won’t solve all your sexual problems. 


It has been made clear above that Cenforce is not capable of making you bigger permanently beyond what nature has given you.

It has been found in a study that around 45-50% of men are not satisfied with the size of the penis. So, it is possible that you might be one of half of the men. It has also been studied that the ability to satisfy your partner has nothing or very less to do with the size of your penis. 

Medications are not at all likely to help you increase your size. Exercises too, do not help you go big, but if you still want to, there is a rather more expensive option available that might help you, i.e. penile surgery. If you really think the result is worth spending that amount, you can go for it.
