Viagra: Beyond Just Helping Men With Erectile Dysfunction

Viagra: Beyond Just Helping Men With Erectile Dysfunction
You don’t need to have erectile dysfunction to know that Viagra is best known for helping men with impotence.

But Viagra is now coming to the forefront as a treatment for something else too.

Viagra reduces fetal distress in childbirth

A preliminary trial in Brisbane, Australia has been testing Viagra for its ability to dilate blood vessels in the pelvis during childbirth.

The study involved 230 women and found that nearly half of the women no longer required an emergency C-section or the use of forceps for fetal distress when Viagra was taken in the early stages of labor.

How Viagra helps

Viagra helps get the baby more nutrients and oxygen in utero by increasing blood flow to the uterus and placenta.

According to University of Queensland professor Sailesh Kumar, preventing fetal distress can greatly improve both the short-term and the long-term health outcomes of the infant.

That’s because oxygen deprivation during labor can cause all sorts of problems, from brain injury and cerebral palsy to death.

In addition, emergency C-sections are linked to poorer results for both mother and baby.

For the next trial, another 200 women will be asked to participate.

Fun facts about Viagra

Viagra is not only the best-selling erectile dysfunction drug in the world but also the most counterfeited. This is why the “f” in Pfizer is unique and hard to replicate. It’s intentional to reduce fakes.

Viagra’s treatment for erectile dysfunction was discovered by accident. Viagra was being used to treat cardiovascular disorders but an attentive nurse noticed that many of the male patients would be on their stomachs when she went to check on them. (This was, presumably, to hide their erection.)

Scientists have figured out that 1 mg of Viagra dissolved in a vase of water can double the life of cut flowers.

Viagra is helping to save endangered animals, like the rhino, by reducing the demand for their parts (such as the horn and genitals, which many believed helped erectile dysfunction).
