Lady Era (sildenafil) is what we know as female Viagra, a drug intended to boost libido in women. Particularly, it has proved to effectively treat hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). Unlike sildenafil for men, Lady Era does not contain testosterone and, therefore, does not cause hormonal changes. However, it is still a drug, which can cause some undesirable symptoms in women. Before using Lady Era, a woman should have decent consultation and examination.
Mechanism of Action
It is quite similar to that of men’s Viagra: it raises the level of cGMP (cyclic guanosine monophosphate) by inhibiting phosphodiestrase 5, an enzyme, which is present in the erectile tissues (corpora cavernosa) of female sex organs and breaks down cGMP. This results in better vasodilation, blood flow and, consequently, erectile function.
Female Viagra is a new kind of drug for ladies that helps dealing with low libido and sexual dysfunction. Because its influence on women has not been fully studied yet, it should be used with caution. It is imperative that you check with your doctor before using this drug.
Meanwhile, it is known for some positive effects, such as the following:
Raises sensitivity of female sex organs;
Contributes to a more intense arousal and orgasm;
Gives a sense of relaxation and relieves stress.
How to Use Lady Era
Lady Era comes in the tablet form, and it should be administered according to the prescription. It depends on the severity of your sexual disorder. Most doctors suggest taking one 1 mg pill about 40-50 minutes before a sexual intercourse each day at any time you plan your sex life. Swallow the pill whole and wash it down with a glass of water or milk.
Store the drug in a cold and dry place, away from children, do not use expired tablets and never exceed your dose.
