Female Cialis – Usage, Mechanism of Action, Side Effects

Female-Cialis-Counter-Indications-2Erectile dysfunction or ED is a purely men’s problem. However, women also can face sexual disorders of different etiology. The most common of them are the following:

• No, or very low sex drive in general (weak libido).
• Physical inability to get sexually aroused.
• Pain during sexual intercourse.
• Frigidity.

Of course, after various drugs for men’s sexual disorders appeared, doctors wondered if it was possible to achieve the same effect in women. There even have been some clinical trials of sildenafil (the active ingredient of Viagra) and tadalafil (the active ingredient of Cialis) in groups of women.

Can Cialis be taken by Women?

According to the latest scientific research, Cialis, as well as other tadalafil containing drugs, is not intended for women. Clinical trials have not revealed any significant effect of this drug in the treatment of women’s sexual disorders. At the same time, it has some side effects, which can negatively influence women’s health.

Fortunately, today there are other medicines, which are sometimes called “female Viagra” or “female Cialis”. They are based on the use of sildenafil and its analogs combined with other substances. Researches proved that these drugs really help women in resolving some of their intimate problems.

Mechanism of Action of Female Cialis

Dr-Lisa-Welling-637590First, it is worth mentioning that female Cialis is not a sexual stimulator or aphrodisiac. Its mechanism of action is based on the vasorelaxant effect of the active ingredient. The drug relaxes the muscles in the blood vessels. As a result, the vessels get wider, providing an intensified blood flow to the pelvic organs, which is filling up the genitals. A physical process of sexual arousal runs smoother, vulva and vagina get more lubricated. Thanks to that a woman feels more relaxed, and the sexual intercourse becomes less painful and brings more pleasure.

It’s important to understand that the drug will not resolve the problems of low sex drive and frigidity. It just intensifies the natural process of arousal, which occurs as a result of sexual stimulation. That is why it is recommended to take the medicine right before sex (about 15-30 minutes before sexual intercourse). The daily volume of drug is no more that one tablet. The pill is swallowed whole, usually with a glass of water. It is not recommended to combine the drug with alcohol. Only small amounts of alcohol are allowable.

Side Effects of Female Cialis

Sometimes taking off “female Cialis” can cause undesirable side effects, which are common for this group of drugs. Usually, side effects are not very severe and well-tolerated. The most common side effects are a headache, upset stomach, dizziness, vomiting, and nausea. More serious cases include temporary loss of vision and hearing, drop in the blood pressure and very rarely – allergic reactions. Like any drug, female Cialis should be taken according to a doctor’s prescription and should not be combined with other medicines without a special prescription.
