Five Ways to Get Sex Going
Are we women getting enough research and treatment attention when it comes to sexual problems?? I don't think so and frankly neither do many experts. Women have few drugs and treatment options and the ones currently available include counseling, a clitoral suction device, and vaginal therapy (you've got me there). According to many women - all they want is what men have - a little blue pill. And women who opt for treating their anxiety or depression with most antidepressants are almost inevitably destined to side effects that may include sexual dysfunction. Who can blame them if they decide to forgo treatment so their sex lives remain vital and intact?
In some cases, just switching anti-depressants can relieve the sexual dysfunction side effect. But for some women a dormant sex life suddenly revitalized may not mean orgasm - even if sexual desire and libido return. Well, doctors are now finding that Viag...
With fourth of July coming up and watermelons typically landing on every picnic table from NY to LA, how delightful to find out that this juicy fruit has ingredients that "deliver viagra-like effects to blood vessels." This popular summer fruit may even increase libido . The specific phytonutrients (naturally occuring compounds) in watermelon seem to be able to relax blood vessels, a reaction that occurs when a man takes viagra.

Remember that watermelon is packed with water content (92%) so it hydrates and fills you up.
The plus here is that eating watermelon will have less side effects than som...

The main ingredient, sildenafil, is also marketed as Revatio, a medication used to increase the ability to exercise in in people with pulmonary arterial hypertension. It works in a similar way, relaxing blood vessels in the lungs to allow for blood to flow.
Scientists used this information as a basis for a mega-analysis of studies that had looked at using this type of medication and the effects on the heart which were published between January 2004 and May 214. Their analysis was published in the open-access journal BMC Medicine . In the clinical trials, participants, who had cardiovascular disorders, were given either PDE5i (sidenafil is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor or PDE5i) or a placebo. This inhibits the enzyme PDE5, which can prevent the relaxation of smooth muscle tissue. The participants did not necessarily suff...
