What Will Happen If Women Take Viagra?

What actually is Viagra? 

‘Viagra is a drug licensed to help men with erectile dysfunction. ‘It contains the active ingredient Sildenafil which works by causing particular muscles in the body – the smooth muscles that surround blood vessels – to relax. When this happens, there is more space for the blood vessels to enlarge and allow more blood to pass through. ‘Blood flow to the penis is the final and most important step for an erection to occur. ‘When a man takes Viagra, the smooth muscles around the blood vessels in the penis relax and more blood passes through the penis. It doesn’t increase sexual desire; but simply increases blood flow to the penis for it to become erect.’ says Dr. Clare Morrison a Medexpress expert

Why women will want to take Viagra?

There has been erectile dysfunction medication on the market for years, but women’s sexual dysfunction has largely been ignored. This has driven several desperate women to trying their husband or partner’s erectile dysfunction medication to see if it can offer them any benefits, hoping to finally sexual dysfunction and frustration far behind them. But, unfortunately, Viagra for men can’t do anything to help women’s sexual dysfunction. There is now a Viagra specially formulated for women, but it’s hard to come by and pretty pricey. It’s hard to blame them for wanting to see if this highly effective medication could do anything for them. However, trying this medication as a woman is not recommended and could lead to potential harm; there are no studies available to indicate whether Viagra is harmful for women or not.

What will happen if women take Viagra?

Viagra is designed to work by allowing blood flow to be redirected in the body, allowing the man taking the medication to get an erection when sexually stimulated and maintain it during the entirety of sexual intercourse. It’s important to note that Viagra doesn’t actually do anything to increase your sexual desire; it merely addresses the issue of blood flow.

As women don’t have penises to redirect the blood flow to, how can this medication affect them? While the drug does still work to redirect blood flow to the genitalia, it still manages to not increase sexual desire in women, in the same way it doesn’t for men. So far, there have been very few tests run on the actual effects of Viagra on women, but it doesn’t look promising.

Men and women are fundamentally different when it comes to sexual stimulation and the sexual organs, so it makes since that what works for one gender as treatment for erectile dysfunction, won’t necessarily work on the other.
