Viagra: Curing My SSRI-Sexual Dysfunction

Dear Reader,

****CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT!******

What follows are my experiences taking Viagra, as prescribed by my doctor. This post will contain talk of a sexual nature, I’m going to talk graphically about my vagina and probably sex to. So, if you’re easily offended maybe this post isn’t the best one for you. Also, I am not a doctor, please don’t take what I say for anything more than my own experiences.

I will begin this post by saying that when I tried to get my prescription dispensed I thought I had hit a road block. The Pharmacist told me that Viagra isn’t licenced to be prescribed to women and so he had to call my doctor for confirmation. I had already been waiting 30 minutes for my prescription, so I decided to leave and come back as I was told it would be at least another 30 minutes.

After the 30 minutes passed I returned to the pharmacy and was given my medication, but only 4 tablets as apparently they only had 4 in stock. Now personally, I think that’s bull shit. I know Viagra is according to the NHS guidelines only to be perscribed 4 tablets per month , my doctor said as much when he prescribed me 8. But, I decided to just accept my 4 tablets after all I had spent over an hour in the pharmacy, and go back to collect the remainder the next week.

Test 1

Test number 1 began the night my prescription was dispensed. My doctor told me to take half of a 50MG tablet 1 hour before sex, So, I cut the pill in half. My partner and I began “preparing” and I took the half pill (25mg) at this point. 40 minutes after taking the 25MG I didn’t really feel any different, although this did result in a “positive sexual experience”

Test 2

Worried that the last test was a placebo, a few days later we decided to try this time without the help of the medication. 1 hour 30 minutes later, nothing was happening and I grew tired and frustrated of it all and gave up. I decided that maybe it wasn’t a placebo, but that next time I would take the full 50mg.

My doctor did tell me that if I felt the 25mg wasn’t working I could take the 50mg.

Test 3

Today I took the full 50mg and, oh did it work! my partner says that there was also a dramatic increase in “lubrication” on my part as well as clitoris becoming a lot more swollen than usual. This was an “incredibly” positive sexual experience.

Test 4

I have been struggling to sleep which I think is down to a possible manic episode, although that is for another post. Anyway, at 2am I decided to wake up my partner for some surprise sex which went awfully, I kept getting incredibly close to climaxing and then it just wasn’t happening. After 40 minutes I got fed up and stopped us. This made me pretty depressed, this depression went into the next day and my high that had been making me frantically clean the entire house seemed to be disappearing. Although it came back with a vengeance 12 hours later and I threw away 24 bags of rubbish from my bed room.

Test 5

Another late night test, again with no pills and again no satisfying outcome. This was also about 40 minutes, I got tired and I wasn’t feeling like I was going to climax at all, even though it felt good. This time, I was more upset then frustrated by the whole experience and struggled to sleep after because my brain wouldn’t shut up.

Test 6

This time, I took the pill before any sexual activity began, I took the full 50mg, I have realised over the course of this experiment that maybe it’s not the placebo I imagined it was. Effects began to kick in after about 40 minutes. This once again resulted in a positive sexual experience, although it made me incredibly sensitive to the point where things had to stop a few times because I couldn’t decide whether it was hurting, tickling or felt good.

And so in conclusion, yes Viagra has most definitely helped me with SSRI-induced sexual dysfunction, however, I know the medication is not licensed in women and because of that some doctors may be skeptical in prescribing it. Please remember I am no medical professional, this is purely my experiences. Also, remember that taking other people’s medication is dangerous if you are going to take viagra, I ask that you get it prescribed. Also, remember Viagra is not a magic medication. You have to be aroused for it to work.

Anyway, after that little disclaimer, I just wanted to say that this has been an experience, and honestly, I never thought I’d say that I am a viagra taker. Personally, I find the situation comical. You don’t generally associate viagra with 26-year-old women.

Thanks for reading everyone, I apologise for the detail of my sexual organs.

As Always,

The Elephant in the Room

  1. If things keep going this way for me, I think I’ll talk to my doc about it too.. I just started taking SSRI’s this year and it’s wonderful to feel a lot more functional, but I’ve been having major troubles with the whole arousal and then climaxing thing. So frustrating.
    I use to be too depressed, now I’m not, but it didn’t help in this aspect.. pretty frustrating.
    I’m glad it’s working out for you so far, though! hurrah!
