Sildenafil and Female Sexuality
The problem of female sexuality has been neglected throughout the history of medicine and pharmacology, and it is still surrounded by false beliefs that are deeply rooted in the society’s perception. However, the implication of first drugs that are designed to increase female desire and satisfaction is a huge leap towards understanding and managing conditions that prevent women from having a full and enjoyable sexual life.
Sildenafil affects a woman’s predisposition to engage sexually on the physical level. Being a stimulator of increased blood flow, sildenafil expands the walls of blood vessels in the areas of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) concentration, which happens to be the clitoris. As a result, the clitoris engorges and fills with blood, which acts as a mechanical stimulation of the genitals. This mechanism promotes sexual desire and makes it easier for the woman taking Femalegra to achieve orgasm with minimal stimulation on the side of her partner.
Sildenafil was clinically proven to positively affect the level of sexual arousal in females and increase the response towards sexual stimulation as compared to unmedicated state in a cluster of women during the course of a study undertaken in 2001.
