A recent UK research project for the erectile dysfunction medication known as Levitra has produced results that show that the Levitra is not only enhancing the sexual function and pleasure of men but also that it can play a part in the enhancement of sexual function of women. The research confirms a trend in thinking that it is women who benefit from erectile dyfunction medication as much as men if not more.
The research project in the South West of England involved 260 participants who admitted to some form of erectile dysfunction. The men were either given Levitra or a dud placebo pill. The study that took place over 3 months involved detailed questionnaires about sexual function and satisfaction from both the men and women at monthly intervals.
The first finding that was reported was an 81% betterment in erections for those taking the Levitra medication compared to only 30% with the dud placebo pill. Erectile dysfunction medication is known to produce high figures of supposed improvemnet with placebo pills, thus explaining why so many worthless traditional remedies continue to be used.
The participants were asked in their questionnaires whether Levitra had an effect on sexual function in both the men and women in the following areas. They were orgasm satisfaction, sexual confidence, sexual pleasure, ease of erection, satisfaction of erection and satisfaction of the medication.
Sixty percent of men taking the Levitra reported improved orgasm satisfaction compared to 32% of those taking the placebo. Females reported 56% and 32% improvement of orgasm satisfaction respectively for Levitra and placebo.
Levitra also improved the sexual confidence of both men and women over the study period with figures of 62% for men and 59% for women. The placebo increased confidence by 34% in men and 30% in women. Sexual pleasure received a boost with 67% of men and 64% of women reporting positively on that compared to 44% and 38% with the placebo.
The perception by which ease of erection was improved was 64% for men and 60% for women for Levitra users and 41% and 37% for placebo users. The satisfaction with erection figures were 60% and 58% for Levitra and 28% and 27% for placebo users. Overall satisfaction with Levitra was 62% and 58% for those actually using it and those who thought that they were using it reported 31% and 30% respectively.
The difference in improvement of sexual funtion for men and women was minimal suggesting that Levitra is as much a sexual function drug for women as it is for men.
In women this same feeling, that "something is happening" and that "this pill I just took is meant for sex", can heighten their sexual response as soon as they start to feel these reactions. Women do not have erectile tissue like men but these meds could possibly affect how their vaginal wall secrete lubrication (no studies on this yet).
In both men in women, if you are looking for a pill to make you "horny" then you have other issues that need to be looked into (Stress being #1). If this is just more of sexual exploration and you have sexual desires that meet you and your lovers needs, then just be careful and keep the above in mind. Also, always talk to your doctor before taking these pills(especially if you were given some by a friend or lover to "try out"). Women should not be afraid to talk to their doctor about this. It's very important to check your basic health and history as well as interaction with other drugs and to document it in case something severe happens.
