Our pharmacy is very sensitive to the issue of female health; women enter our website with confidence, looking for advice and answers to meet their health needs for matters of contraception, fertility, sexual health, menstrual pain, hormonal balance, beauty, nutrition, healthy weight and many more. From our daily experience it turns out that women are responsible for family health and that women think more about the health of their loved ones than their own condition. It is important to understand that when woman’s health is taken care of, she can tend to the needs of her family. Protecting women’s health means protecting the entire community because women play a strategic role for the adoption of healthy lifestyles as well as for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of pathologies that affect those close to them.

Lady Era

Lady Era (sildenafil citrate) is an oral drug used in women with manifested disorders related to the sexual desire and the ability to derive satisfaction from their sexual experiences. The drug belongs to a group of medicines called “phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5)”; the substance works by blocking the enzyme phosphodiesterase which normally reduces the levels of a substance called cyclic GMP (cGMP).

Clomid (clomiphene citrate, or clomiphene), is a structural analogue of estrogens, and inhibits their action by preferentially binding to the receptor of the hypothalamic neuron normally intended for the reception of estrogen hormones. This makes clomiphene a competitive inhibitor of estrogens at the level of hypothalamic receptors.

Cabgoline is one of the drugs used when suffering from hyperprolactinaemia, which is when the levels of prolactin in the blood are too high. This hormone produced by the pituitary gland (one of our endocrine glands), in fact, under normal conditions is very low in both men and women, its level rises only during pregnancy and lactation, given that its primary function is to stimulate the production of breast milk.
