Can women take Levitra?

Postby ladyk1259 » Mon May 02, 2005 2:26 pm

This is sort of embarassing but I need to know if women with sexual disfunction can take Levitra and if they can will it help them.I have had 2 c-sections and a total hysdorectomy and now I have a problem with intimacy. :oops:

Hello,
There is nothing embarassing about it at all. It turns out that female sexual dysfunction is a very common condition. Levitra has not been thoroughly tested on, nor approved for use by women. No woman should consider taking Levitra without first discussing it with her gynecologist. I think you should get a serum testosterone test. The 'male' hormone is responsible for a good many cases of female sexual dysfunction. If it turns out that you do have low hormone levels then you can be treated with hormone replacement.
