The role of sildenafil in the life of a man and a woman



Erectile dysfunction is a widespread phenomenon and has a significant impact on the life of not only a man, but also his sexual partner.
Objective: to study the sexual partners’ assessment of men with ED of their sexual life before their men started taking PDE-5 iPDE-5 and after the course of treatment.
Material and Methods: a monocenter cohort study was conducted, which included 128 men with mild to moderate ED aged 32 to 54 years. All patients took sildenafil 50 mg “on demand” for 3 months. At the end of therapy, the patients’ wives were interviewed about their satisfaction with the quality of treatment of their husbands.
Results:the positive effect of sildenafil was noted by 83 (64.84%) patients. 43 wives agreed to answer questions. Initially, 38 (88.37%) wives rated the couple’s sex life as unsatisfactory, although 5 women did not consider their husband’s ED to be a problem, since they themselves had low sexual desire. After 3 months sildenafil therapy, 19 (44.18%) women considered their family sex life to be good, 22 (51.16%) – excellent. At the same time, according to 2 (4.65%) women, there were no changes, which once again proves that for a woman in sex, one good erection from a sexual partner is not enough.
Conclusions:sildenafil plays an important, albeit indirect, role in a woman’s life – it increases her sexual satisfaction by improving the erection of her sexual partner. According to the study, 95.35% of women are satisfied with the results of treatment of their sexual partners with sildenafil.

Key words: sildenafil, erectile dysfunction, female sexual dysfunction, prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia, treatment of erectile dysfunction.
