Viagra Helping Women Too?

That is right, Viagra could have useful effects for the lady folk as well as men. A new study is stating that Viagra could be used by women to lesson the severity of their menstrual cramps. Who knew this legendary little blue pill could be a women’s best friend. 

Admit it. When you hear the name, Viagra, you giggle like a little 13-year-old boy. We all know Viagra’s fame. But, it could be getting a new place outside of the bedroom.

A recent study (reported by Huffington Post) by the researchers of Penn State College of Medicine has found that when sildenafil citrate, more commonly known as Viagra, was applied vaginally to women plagued by severe menstrual cramps, they experienced pain relief compared with placebo. Could it be? Could Viagra be the new Midol? What a plot twist, huh?

Sildenafil citrate, the active component in men’s erectile dysfunction drugs is being considered for its benefits for the ladies. Though this one study is not being determined as the last word on the subject, it gives hope to the women of the world suffering from those awful monthly cramps.

This ailment most women experience is called, primary dysmenorrhea. This is the term for pelvic pain in healthy women before or during menstruation, also known simply as cramps. If future studies conclude that Sildenafil citrate, in fact, helps PD suffering women, it may just be a new treatment option.

“Since PD is a condition that most women suffer from and seek treatment for at some points in their lives, the quest for new medication is justified,” stated the Viagra study researcher, Richard Legro. Legro is a professor of obstetrics and gynecology and public health sciences at Penn State College of Medicine.

The truth of wether Viagra will start showing up in women’s purses or not will come with time. Watch out guys, we might be fighting you at the pharmacy for those blue little pills soon.
