Women and Cialis
Modern medical advances have made some diseases completely disappear, and many have turned from serious ailments from which a person could suffer for many years into easily treatable conditions. The last widely known event that turned all ideas on the treatment of erectile dysfunction or impotence upside down is the invention of drugs from the group of PDE-5 inhibitors such as Cialis, Viagra and Levitra. No more stigma of an impotent - just take a pill before sex to get a stone erection. Men finally got their hands on the cure for one of the oldest and most common problems of the strong half of humanity.
But what about women who continue to read magazines of varying degrees of doubtfulness, full of articles like “How to achieve an orgasm in 5 minutes” or “The path to sensuality: how to learn how to quickly get aroused”? Sometimes it seems that almost every second woman wonders how to improve her sensations during sex. Many men also dream that their partners become hotter in bed. There is an opinion that the so-called male pills – for example, Cialis – can help women in this.
This article will examine the question of whether Cialis pills are actually effective in enhancing female sexual arousal, or is it just a myth and they don’t affect the organism of beautiful ladies, or this medicine is dangerous for women’s health.
Female Cialis Or Ordinary Cialis?
There is an opinion that Cialis for women is some special medicine that differs from ordinary Cialis, which is based on the active substance Tadalafil and which is used by men. However, in fact, there is no such medicine; there is only one Cialis, the composition of which does not depend on who is taking it.
Officially the use of Cialis by women is not approved, because there is not enough research on how Tadalafil affects the level of sexual arousal of a woman and what negative consequences its use in women (or not).
Although regulatory authorities on pharmacology, such as the FDA, cite a lack of data for verdicting the possibility of using Cialis in women, there is information about a study that covered groups of women of reproductive age, in which some of them took Cialis and should report any changes sensations during sex and orgasm. Most of the participants in the study reported that taking Cialis didn’t affect how quickly they reached sexual arousal, but thanks to these pills, women received more intense sensations during sex and reached orgasm faster than usual. This is most likely due to the fact that Tadalafil enhances blood circulation in the genitals, and if in men it leads to a strong erection, in women it helps to increase the sensitivity of the clitoris and labia.
This study didn’t reveal any risk of taking Cialis by women, with the exception of some side effects common to both sexes. Nevertheless, if you are female and want to be sure that Cialis is not fraught with any negative consequences for your body, the optimal choice for you is to wait until the use of Cialis by women is clinically examined and approved by the FDA.
Even if you decide to take Cialis, keep in mind that this is not an aphrodisiac, and the pill will not cause you any kind of supernatural sexual desire. The whole mechanism of action of Tadalafil is based solely on improving blood circulation in the genitals.
What Happens If A Woman Takes Cialis?
Most skeptical people believe that the active substance of Cialis, Tadalafil, can’t be effective in women, because the purpose of this medicine is to provide the man with a rush of blood to the pelvic organs and, accordingly, a strong erection, which occurs due to inhibition of the production of the enzyme PDE-5 in the cavernous bodies of the penis. And since women don’t have a penis, then the effect doesn’t occur. Meanwhile, the clitoris also has cavernous bodies, even if they are many times smaller than those in the penis. In addition, Cialis has a relaxing effect on the smooth muscles of the arteries, causing them to dilate and increase blood supply, and no one will argue with the fact that women also have arteries.
The fact that women also feel the effects of Cialis is proved by the research mentioned in the previous section. Its participants reported changes that they felt during sexual intercourse after taking Cialis. Among the described sensations were swelling of the labia, sensation of increased secretion of vaginal lubrication, sensation of warmth in the vagina.
It is not recommended to try taking Cialis for pregnant and lactating women, because the effect of Tadalafil in these situations has not been studied and may be negative.
If a woman decides to take Cialis, she should be prepared for a number of unpleasant side effects, which will be discussed in the next section.
Cialis And Its Side Effects
Cialis is known famous among all PDE-5 inhibitors due to the fact that it has the least amount of side effects, so any person who decides to use this drug needs to be prepared for the accompanying unpleasant sensations. Cialis also reacts in a peculiar way with some other medicines. It should be noted that although up to 50% of patients experience certain side effects, only about 5% of them characterize them as strongly pronounced.
Women who decide to try something new in sex and have taken Cialis may face the same side effects as men. These include nasal congestion, headache, digestive disorders, muscle pain. The severity of these side effects depends on the dosage of the drug: those who take 20 mg feel them stronger than those who chose 5 or 10 mg. When you take the medicine for the first time, side effects are usually more pronounced. They tend to weaken with regular use of the drug.
The more serious side effects of Tadalafil, which are very rare, include arrhythmia, tachycardia, dizziness, darkening in the eyes, chest pain. If you feel any of the above, it’s best not to try again with this medicine. For chest pain or severe arrhythmia, it is best to seek emergency medical attention.
Really serious and dangerous side effects can only occur if Cialis was used in a dosage exceeding the maximum daily allowance (20 mg), or it was taken in combination with those medications, the use of which is a contraindication for taking Tadalafil. These include nitric oxide donors, some drugs for the treatment of hypertension, alpha-blockers and HIV protease inhibitors. You can find a more detailed list of drugs, when taking which it is contraindicated to resort to the help of Cialis, in the instructions for use of the latter. The fact is that such combinations are fraught with a sharp drop in blood pressure, which can even lead to fainting, or an increased load on the heart, which takes place extremely rare, but still can lead to a stroke or heart attack. For this reason, it is better not to mix Cialis with a large amount of alcohol, although a couple of glasses of wine is not a contraindication.
In addition to the medicines listed above, Cialis mustn’t be taken in combination with poppers – aerosol type chemicals, the inhalation of which causes relaxation of smooth muscles throughout the body and is used for experiencing brighter sensations during sex. As you might guess, this is accompanied by a decrease in blood pressure, which in combination with the hypotensive effect of Cialis is not good for health.
What Are Alternatives of Cialis for Women?
Although some experts believe that in the near future either Cialis or Viagra will be approved for use by representatives of the female gender, so far no official body of pharmaceutical legislation has expressed such an opinion. In this regard, women are not recommended to take Cialis if they are not ready for the fact that they will bear all responsibility for their health. It should be borne in mind that you will not be able to see a doctor complaining that the medicine is affecting you in a bad way, as a man to whom Cialis was prescribed by a urologist can do.
Despite the many high-profile announcements of miraculous female aphrodisiacs that can be found on the websites of sex shops and in cheap magazines, today there is still no means that effectively and proven increases the excitability of women. Perhaps the most effective advice, albeit more than often heard, is to diversify your sexual life, try new poses and techniques, do not hesitate to tell your partner about your desires and explore your own body. After all, although it is generally accepted that mostly men masturbate, the truth is that all men and all women masturbate. It is as natural for an adult sexually mature person as going to the toilet.
However, in some cases, simply developing your sexuality is not enough. Reduced sex drive in women, difficulty with arousal (lack of lubrication) and orgasm can be associated with hormonal imbalance, the use of certain drugs, for example, antidepressants. Also, the use of improperly selected oral contraceptives can lead to a similar effect. In this case, you need to contact a gynecologist or an endocrinologist in order to eliminate these problems.
If you do not have any diseases that can cause decreased sex drive, but would like your sensations during sex and/or masturbation to become brighter, don’t forget about the so-called natural aphrodisiacs – plants such as fenugreek, ginseng, substances like shilajit and some others. They accelerate the metabolism in the body, are rich in vitamins and minerals, have a general healing effect and help improve blood circulation, in particular in the genitals. They also have a beneficial effect on the production of sex hormones. Drugs based on them can be taken by both women and men. Spicy food also has a positive effect on sexuality, although not everyone can eat it because of a sensitive stomach.
Despite the fact that officially there is no “Cialis for women”, it is very likely that in the coming years the sex-related pharmacology industry will finally remember the beautiful half of humanity and release some kind of medicine designed specifically for them. So far, women are left at their own peril and risk to take men's pills, because they still work, albeit not as obvious as in the case of men.
