The effects of Viagra on women have been studied in recent years, but as far as I can see, results have been not been definite. Some studies claimed it worked in women with sexual dysfunction, whereas others showed Viagra to be similarly effective as sugar pills.

Fact is, Viagra is a prescription medication, and unless it has been prescribed to a certain person, for a certain use, it should not be experimented with.

In general, for young women who have trouble reaching orgasm or experiencing arousal, the first route should be to get to know their bodies and try out masturbation, not to reach for medication.

I'm talk briefly about how Viagra (sildenafil) works.

Viagra is a drug that causes blood vessels to dilate by allowing for the release of nitric oxide (chemical formula: NO). It is only for people whose vessels can no longer dilate normally, namely folks for whom, age has taken some toll. By and large, young people don't have these problems. One of its more interesting side effects is that it causes the patient's vision to tint blue (the biochem mechanism Viagra uses to trigger No relase is also the same one that operates eyesight). However, one of the less "fun" side effects is heart failure; the dilation of blood vessels causes a drop in blood pressure. In people with low to normal blood pressure (like healthy young people), a drop can prove very dangerous.

May suffering and pestilence befall the %$@! who broke into my car.

laurahill, this discussion is almost 7 years old. Please do not revive really old topics.

Hey folks, my name is Andrew and I was a mod here for awhile a couple years ago. I'll be here for a couple weeks while Heather is out and the site is even more short-staffed than usual
