Die already cock stand. A singlish idiom that refers to the profuse awesomeness of something that (could) prevail even upon demise. But that’s not the outcome you want when you are seeking treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). In your pursuit to revive things in the bedroom, it is important to do it safely. ED medications like Viagra or Sildenafil are readily available in Singapore. Here is Singapore’s first ever legal guide to buying Viagra.

Where to buy Viagra in Singapore?

Before the e-commerce era, the only way to get your hands on these blue pills would be through the doctor’s office.

When it comes to getting treatment for your most precious organ, the majority of men still find it safer to purchase it through legitimate ways.

In the year 2021, we look at what options are currently available in the Singapore market.

Digital Clinic (eg. SIRE) – Most convenient and discreet

Sire is a direct-to-consumer service based in Singapore specializes in bringing safe and affordable treatment to your doorstep.

The experience is truly unique, downright to the packaging.

“Men are all about performance. So when it comes to ED, men tend to suffer in silence. By removing the embarrassment out of it, we found that more Singaporean men were willing to seek help,” shared Dr Chan Jun Yang, founder of Sire.

Individual pills packed into discreet pouches that are the size of a condom pack.

Obtaining prescription-only medication is now possible in 3 simple steps: Survey, Consult, Delivery.

The survey and consult can be done in the comfort of your home. The health survey takes no more than 5 minutes. And the virtual consultation is done via WhatsApp, so no need to download additional apps.

Sire helps cut out the mundane aspects of getting a repeat prescription too. Once a doctor deems your suitability, you can subscribe to a monthly subscription that sends the refills regularly. This way, you never need to worry about running a flat one.

GP Clinics

This is your trusted neighbourhood doctor.

Dr Ah Meng has been there since you were young. He knows your life story and is always pleased to see you.

But that’s the issue too. You aren’t quite sure if you want to share your erection trouble with your family doctor (who is probably seeing your parents too).

Having a little distance is usually best when it comes to sensitive matters like this.

Urologist in the public sector

In order to get subsidized rates, you need to be diagnosed with ED within the public institution. For that, you will need to see a Urologist.

But what’s the catch? Long appointment times and long waiting times.

For some, bringing the little brother back to life could save a marriage.

Not to forget, sitting in a room full of fellow men, who may all seem to be struggling in similar ways. Not quite an anonymous service.

Secret tip: Still prefer to see a government Urologist but can’t afford to wait? You can book the appointments directly via Healthhub to see under private. The wait is shorter, but more expensive.

Private Urologist

If you want a comfortable and private space to sit in, while sharing your concerns with a trusted professional, then a private Urologist would be suitable for you.

The benefit of a Urologist is that they can offer specialized treatment for ED beyond PDE5-I. They include extracorporeal shockwave therapy, intracavernous injection, intraurethral pills.

For the extreme cases, even penile implants!

Thankfully, all most men need are PDE5-I like Viagra. So you won’t need to go to that extreme.

Pharmacies

Local pharmacies in Singapore actually carry ED medications too.

However, you can’t just walk in and buy it like sweets.

You still need a prescription, because it is a controlled medication.

That’s a bit of a problem, isn’t it? Because you still need to see a doctor to obtain a prescription chit, which brings you back to square one.

Why not just buy Viagra off the Internet?

It actually is possible to buy controlled medications over the Internet.

But the concern is your safety.

Unsuspecting victims have fallen ill, or even died, from taking illicitly sourced sexual enhancement pills.

They may work. But it’s not because they are the real deal.

These “online pills” do not go through regulatory checks. Hence, they may concern a little of the active ingredient like sildenafil, but they may also contain toxic substances.

There are also legal and financial implications to online drug purchases, which we had explored in a separate article.

Buying drugs off the Internet – Not everything is what it seems.

I am shy. Can my wife/girlfriend/partner buy Viagra on my behalf?

You can’t stay incognito by sending someone cognito.

Erectile dysfunction medications, Viagra and Sildenafil, are prescription-only medications in Singapore.

So you are still required to see a doctor in person and present a valid identification to get a prescription.

Fortunately, digital clinics like Sire remove that embarrassment by allowing you to order from the comfort of your room.

Does my insurance cover erectile dysfunction medication?

As much as ED is classified as a medical condition, insurance plans rarely cover the cost for ED treatment.

Hence, finding reliable services that can provide safe and affordable solutions are becoming the new choice for customers.
