Is Viagra For Women?

Dear Sugar
My boyfriend suggested that we share a pill of Viagra to enhance our sexual experience together. There is nothing lacking in our sex life, but he promises that it will be fun and that it will increase sensitivity for me.

I was under the impression that Viagra was only for men. Is it safe for women? Inquisitive Ilana

Dear Inquisitive Ilana
Right now there is no definitive answer, however, information from past studies indicate that it could be more effective than not when treating women who suffer from an inability to become aroused.

Pfizer is currently undergoing a major study in England right now. But regardless of the results, Viagra will have no effect on a women's libido and it is not the hyped-up orgasm pill that some have claimed it to be.

Researchers believe Viagra will help women just like it helps men. When blood vessels in the penis become engorged with blood, an erection occurs. In women, when the blood vessels in the vagina become engorged with blood, it too becomes properly lubricated in preparation for intercourse.

Perhaps women who have been unable to achieve orgasms due to health issues may be able to climax with the help of the little blue pill. But until it can be proved, the FDA will not be working on a female version of Viagra.

So - if you really want to try it, then take 1/2 JUST ONCE to see it's effects. And if you are nervous, (as I think I would be) wait until it's either voted yay or nay before you start stealing your boyfriend's prescriptions. Don't forget that all drugs have potential side effects.

Remember what happened to Bill in Big Love when he upped his Viagra dosage to 100mg? He started seeing spots and passing out. Rule of thumb - safe sex first!
