What Happens If A Girl Takes Viagra

Wondering what happens if a girl takes Viagra? Viagra is a sexual aid for men, launched in 1998, that helps to fight erectile dysfunction (ED). It works by allowing increased blood flow to the penis, so some people think that it should have a similar effect for women, increasing blood flow to the clitoris and increasing feeling and sexual function, but it is not approved by the FDA for this purpose, so women should not take Viagra as it is unknown what side effects women might face if using the pill for this purpose.

The active ingredient in Viagra is called slidenafil, which is also used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension in both men and women. So what happens if a girl takes Viagra in its heart medication form is entirely different and deemed safe for this purpose, as long as it is prescribed by a physician. There are also studies out there to find out what happens if a girl takes Viagra while on serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRIs), a type of anti-depressant medication. These SRIs often cause a loss of libido in women, so certain clinical trials have been performed to see what happens if a girl takes Viagra in concert with the necessary anti-depressants. The study showed that women had increased orgasm function but no increase in sexual desire.

From that, some might generalize that what happens if a girl takes Viagra is good in any case, but the study, conducted by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) was so specific that its results cannot be generalized to those women who are not currently taking SRIs or any other sort of anti-depressants. The truth of the matter is, what happens if a girl takes Viagra is not yet known, so it is not a good idea for women to experiment with this drug designed for men.
