Men are quick like light switch

Men are like a light switch in sex. In good health, when they think about sex or having a good sex partner, they get good sex mood and immediate erection. They ready for immediate sex act.

But in the case of women, it is not so easy. It is a complex process. Many more forces come into action like hormonal conditions, the quality of relationship, lifestyle and physical changes – menstrual cycle, pregnancy, menopause etc.

To make it simple, mental and physical arousal are two different things. Both men and women can be genitally aroused without any mental interest. It is a separate mechanism, which allows lubrication in women or blood flow to the penis in men.”

Low libido in women is a complex issue. It may be due to wide range of potential causes which   range from relationship problems to hormonal conditions and many more. It has to be treated according to the individual. Generally sexual desire is not constant. It goes up and down over the years with menstrual cycle, pregnancy, lactation and menopause over the years. In addition family circumstances, relationship comfort, social life etc can affect their sexual desire. All women need not be affected with sexual problems.

Viagra is a licensed drug helps in men with erectile problem due to insufficient penis blood flow. It contains the active ingredient Sildenafil.  By its enzymatic reaction, it relaxes the smooth muscles surrounding the blood vessels. Because of this relaxation, there is more space for blood.

The same thing happens in the clitoris of female genitalia.

After taking these sex pills, there may be some negative side effects in both genders. The side effects may be headaches, indigestion, flushed skin, dizziness and diarrhea. In rare cases they can cause a heart attack, stroke. Sometimes in men there may be sustained painful penis erection for many hours, called Priapism.

If a woman experience issues with sex simply a sex pill may not work. The firstly and foremost problem may be dry vagina. This may cause painful sex and later on sexual dysfunction. In such cases using lubricant like KY Jelly or simply coconut oil will be more useful. Women should talk to their partner about how and why they are struggling to enjoy sex. Treatment by sexologist should be considered.
