Found viagra

(29 Posts)

So my mum has found a pack of viagra, there's one gone, seems to be getting them on prescription monthly. Parents are not intimate anymore. Is there any explanation as to why my dad would be using these apart from an affair?

Bones2017 Tue 14-Feb-17 15:46:38

They are actually licences for use with heart conditions. Could this be the reason? X

MrsMessyBottom Tue 14-Feb-17 15:47:37

Viagra was first used (and still is) to treat vascular or circulation problems as far as I'm aware. The side effect of using the drug was an accident.... It's unusual but not out of the question.

Chickpearocker Tue 14-Feb-17 15:47:53

I don't think so he's on other meds for heart plus hiding them xx

SandyY2K Tue 14-Feb-17 15:53:18

If the reason for no intimacy is not his personal choice, then I would lean to it being an affair.

Chickpearocker Tue 14-Feb-17 16:07:03

As far as I know it's not his choice, I never thought he would have an affair though.

TroysMammy Tue 14-Feb-17 16:10:37

Does he get them free? Is he flogging them to a mate who doesn't qualify for a NHS prescription and has to buy on a private script?

DeterminedToChange Tue 14-Feb-17 16:11:41

There wouldn't just be one missing then, would there?

Bluebellevergreen Tue 14-Feb-17 16:14:29

Off topic but disturbed you are having this chat with DM blush

peppatax Tue 14-Feb-17 16:16:56

Are they definitely viagra?

SmileEachDay Tue 14-Feb-17 16:17:29

Why is your mother talking to you about this?

PintofSquash Tue 14-Feb-17 16:17:55

Why would you be disturbed Bluebelle? Seems like the sort of problem Mothers and Daughters discuss if they are close enough, I know I would.

Kanewreck Tue 14-Feb-17 16:18:18

Maybe he uses them for masturbation

Chickpearocker Tue 14-Feb-17 16:18:21

Thanks for your replies, I thought maybe he was giving them to a friend but then I don't think one would be missing more likely to give a pack I think. Bluebellevergreen it's not something she wanted to tell me but she is devastated and not sure who else to turn to, if there is someone else then the outcome won't be good for any of us.

Beachedwh4le Tue 14-Feb-17 16:21:59

Masterbation? Just ask

Happybunny19 Tue 14-Feb-17 16:22:20

Masturbation is very likely. Not sure it's a conversation you want to have with your DF though

SmileEachDay Tue 14-Feb-17 16:28:25

Really pinto? I'm not sure discussing a) your lack of sex life or b) the possibility of an affair with your children is a great idea. It's not up to your children to help you sort that stuff out.

FatOldBag Tue 14-Feb-17 16:38:51

Prostitutes?

nicetoseeyoutoseeyounice Tue 14-Feb-17 17:23:52

How do you know he's on a monthly prescription for them? If it's just the one pack, and only one is gone, then maybe he was just experimenting in the hopes he could rekindle some sort of sex life with your mum. I really hope for her sakes that is the case. But if she really wants to know she's going to have to be brave and ask him herself.

Chickpearocker Tue 14-Feb-17 17:36:09

He got more tablets this month and there's a prescription label and date so getting monthly. There's no point asking he will just lie.

I didn't know they could be used for masturbation, I almost feel relieved that there's hope.

FuckyNell Tue 14-Feb-17 17:37:34

Eww

Adora10 Tue 14-Feb-17 17:52:30

Why would you go to the bother and expense for a wank, sorry but I'm afraid I'd be thinking a lot worse than that.

Jessica4444 Tue 14-Feb-17 17:57:07

I think your DM should ask him.

Chickpearocker Tue 14-Feb-17 18:19:50

If she asks him he won't admit anything as he knows then that the marriage will be over. He will then just cover his tracks so I'm thinking it would be better to try and find out more first.

Adora he doesn't have to pay anything the tablets are free.

The Eww comment and comments about why my mother and I have conversed about this isn't helping me. I am already sick to my stomach as is she and contemplating a long hard road ahead and the break up of our family.

Jessica4444 Tue 14-Feb-17 18:27:03

And if your wrong by his wife getting his daughter to snoop on him over what could be a very personal issue and not an affair that itself can ruin a marriage. They've clearly been together for along time so a chat she should be able to gauge by his reaction if he has something to hide. On the flip side if it is an affair he clearly isnt bothered if the marriage is over as he is the one risking it. I'd keep out of if I was you.
