3 Reasons Why Viagra® is for Women Too

If you think Sildelafil is only effective in men..Think again!

Sexual dysfunction is a well-known side effect of some antidepressants, with up to 70% of men and women on antidepressants reporting sexual problems. In a study led by H. George Nurnberg MD and published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, 72% of Women taking antidepressants and Sildenafil (Viagra®) showed HUGE improvements, like increased orgasm and decreased time to orgasm 1.

Looking at the sexual health of women can improve their overall health. The females in the Nurnberg study had the best results on Sildenafil if their testosterone levels were normal. Clinicians who treat patients with HRT (hormone replacement therapy) can offer them the additional benefit of better sex according to this data.

Partner satisfaction is a very important factor in the overall sexual satisfaction of a couple. What Viagra may do in women with normal testosterone levels is engorge their clitoris with blood, which allows them to have orgasms. Viagra acts on a man’s penis and a woman’s clitoris. Multiple studies show that partner satisfaction improves when males take Viagra and now it has been shown that satisfaction can also improve if females take it.

Sildelafil may be an effective treatment for sexual arousal disorder in premenopausal women!

In the spirit of fair-balance, the women in this study did report some side effects. The most common were headache (reported by approx. 43% of the women on Viagra and 27% of those on placebo). Transient vision disturbances were also reported by 14% of those on Viagra and 2% of those on placebo.

To summarize, Sildenafil may be a great option for women on antidepressant therapy because it is well tolerated and does not seem to worsen depression, while greatly improving sexual satisfaction.
