THE FEMALE VIAGRA

The urge for sex in women can be pretty much unstable, this has a lot to do with several life changing circumstances in women such as pregnancy,stress, menopause and even changes in relationships. A condition known as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) which is believed to be the cause of  low sex drive in about 10% of women has been known to cause them distress. HSSD is characterised by the following:

  • Non-existent sexual thoughts, feelings or fantasies
  • Poor or non-existent response to sexual stimulation, flirtations or interest
  • A lack of interest or not being able to keep up with interest in sexual activities
  • Worry over inability and incompetence at having, maintaining or responding to sexual activities

A number of drugs and supplements aiming to cure HSDD have over the years been found to be mostly limited and with unproven effects. The FDA recently approved two prescription drugs with which HSDD can be treated. These drugs are commonly referred to as female Viagra although these new treatments seem to function completely differently in women from how the male Viagra is known to function in men.

 

What are the Medicines Approved by the FDA

The treatments approved by the FDA for HSDD are the following:

  • The Flibanserin also known as  Addyi is a pill to be taken every morning by the patient
  • Bremelanotide also known as Vyleesi is a shot that is recommended to be taken only eight times a month, not more than one shot in a 24 hour period which a person can give herself a shot in the belly or thigh about 45 minutes before having sex.

What these drugs do is that they both boost chemical activity called neurotransmitters in the brain, these chemical activity plays a major role in getting one aroused.  While flibanserin is taken everyday whether there is an intention to have sex that day or not, bremelanotide on the other hand should be taken when there is an intention to engage in sexual activity. It should be noted that both drugs do not make sex any better they only help increase the urge for sex when taken. 

How Effective is the Female Viagra

Approval for the female Viagra by the FDA was based on three phase III clinical trials. For each trial it took a time frame of 24 weeks and the an evaluation of the effectiveness of the female Viagra was carried out in comparison to a placebo in premenopausal women.

During analysis of the three trials conducted for placebo and the female Viagra by investigators it was adjudged that about 10 percent of participants  reported significant improvements on their sexual desires in trial weeks 8 to 24. When this is compared to Viagra it can be said that this is only but a modest  improvement.

For the treatment of erectile dysfunction, a review after three years of approval by the FDA which summarizes worldwide response to the treatment shows that in the United States 74 percent of participants responded positively compared to 19 percent positive response for those for who took a placebo. 

Side Effects

In taking the female Viagra, the most common side effects are considered to be dizziness, difficulty falling or remaining asleep, nausea, dry mouth, tiredness, low blood pressure, also known as hypotension and fainting or a loss in consciousness.

  1. When I first started experiencing low sexual libido I thought I was way too young to be experiencing such a thing. My husband was confused as to what was happening but the longer it went on, the worse the situation got. I decided to go to my doctor and he told me that I should try female Viagra. I didn't even know there was such a thing but I wanted to try it. The first night back with my husband was everything I hoped that it would be and we are very much back on track
  2. My wife has the sexual appetite of a piece of wood. She'll throw me a mercy lay now and then, but that was about it. After a lot of convincing, she tried female Viagra to see if it would help make her want it more. I think I created a MONSTER! The first time she was all over me and the next morning we had sex again before I left for work. During the day, she texted me, "close your door and put your pods in." She called me on Facetime so I can watch her masturbate with her dildo. Since she began using female Viagra, our sex life has exploded! I have to tell he that I need to take a break so I can get some sleep. I'm not complaining at all!!
  3. I was suffering from depression and I no longer felt like having sex with my boyfriend. I would occasionally feel aroused by something I saw on television or the internet, but I had no desire to satiate these desires through him. I thought that my depressions might be causing this, so I looked into female Viagra. I made an appointment with my doctor and after discussing the various types of the drug, I was prescribed Addyi. After my appointment, I immediately had the prescription filled. I felt nauseous and dizzy quite a bit while taking Addyi. I did have sex with my boyfriend, but I found that I felt no more aroused than usual with him. I did, however, feel more aroused when I was alone and I felt more desire to masturbate. I also felt arousal when speaking to another man. I came to realize that the problem was that I no longer felt attraction to my boyfriend and that the side effects of Addyi were not worth it.
  4. When menopause hit I really wasn't filled with much desire for sex with my partner. I've decided to try Sildenafil and it seems to be working! It's still too early to tell if will continue, but for now our sex life has improved.
