Female Viagra Sildenafil

Female Viagra Sildenafil

Description

Viagra is the most popular treatment for erectile dysfunction in men. Can women take it? What happens if a woman takes Viagra (or similar products like Sildenafil or Viagra Connect)? Find out why the drug is not suitable for treating sexual dysfunction in women.

Which effects does Viagra have on women?

Although it has proven very effective in treating men, the erectile dysfunction medication Viagra is not suitable for women. There is some anecdotal evidence that Viagra may increase sexual pleasure in women but so far, medical trials have failed to produce conclusive evidence that it works for women. 

The most promising study so far was a trial run by the UCLA Female Sexual Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Study participants reported that taking Viagra improved their sexual enjoyment, prompting further research into the possible use of Viagra as a treatment for women. The scientists hypothesized, that similarly to the effect it has on men, Viagra could increase the blood flow to the female genitalia, thus improving sexual experience.

However, further studies failed to replicate the successful outcome of the first trial and researchers came to assume that the women who experienced a positive result may simply have done so by chance.

As there has never been a widespread medical trial of Viagra in women, the exact effects the drug may have on female patients are not known. It is currently unclear whether Viagra is safe for women to take or which side effects and long-term effects it could have on the female body. Therefore, Viagra is only licensed for use in men.

Could Viagra be used to treat menstrual pain?

In addition to being considered as a possible fertility treatment, Viagra could also be used to treat period pain in women. Researchers at the Penn State College of Medicine hypothesize that Viagra’s impact on your blood flow qualify it as a possible treatment for menstrual problems such as period pain and cramps. A small sample of 25 women confirmed that they perceived their monthly symptoms as less

painful under the influence of Viagra. It is not currently clear whether there may have been a placebo effect at play or whether Viagra actually treats period pain. Further trials are planned to investigate this possible use further - and to confirm that there are no adverse effects.

Does female Viagra work?

“Female Viagra” is a term often used by online sellers to promote herbal supplements. Promising sexual benefits, illegitimate pharmacies promote a range of pills, powders and jellies. As with herbal Viagra for men, there is often no evidence to support any claims that these remedies actually improve sexual experience. 

One particular type of female Viagra which has shown some promise in increasing a woman’s libido is Prelox, a herbal supplement sold in many pharmacies and health food shops. During trials, women who took the supplement found that their sex lives improved as a result. However, gynecologists and urologists have voices doubts over the effectiveness of Prelox, claiming that its benefits may be down to the placebo effect.  

Prelox is legally sold at UK health shops and safe to buy. However, you should be wary of online sellers offering a range of medications as “female Viagra”, as you might be putting your health at risk if you take them. There is an abundance of illegitimate online pharmacies which may be selling unlicensed or dangerous medication.

Flibanserin 'Addyi' is a medication licenced in the US (but not the UK) which is used to treat low sex drive in women. In theory it works on the brain to increase sexual desire but it has had mixed reviews. 

There is currently no licensed medication or remedy proven to treat sexual problems in women.
