Potential benefits of PT-141
Increased sexual desire
One potential benefit of PT-141 is its ability to increase sexual desire and arousal in both men and women. Another study looked at PT-141 in premenopausal women with sexual arousal disorder and found that it improved sexual desire.
PT-141 has been studied as a potential alternative treatment option for ED.4 It is a melanocortin receptor agonist that works by stimulating the release of nitric oxide. This chemical helps to relax the smooth muscles in the penis and increases blood flow. This increased blood flow can help to improve erectile function in men with ED.
It is one of the few solutions that have undergone clinical trials to determine its effectiveness at treating sexual dysfunction in both men and women. The results from phase II clinical trials have been promising and may support the use of PT-141 as a solution for ED.
It’s important to remember that PT-141’s possible benefits are still being evaluated, and more research is needed to determine how well it works and if it is safe to use long-term. With that said, it is always best to consult your doctor before undergoing any treatment.
Common side effects of PT-141
A feeling of warmth, redness, or a tingly sensation in the skin, is caused by the dilation of blood vessels in the skin. Flushing is a common side effect of PT-141 and is usually mild to moderate in severity, but it can be more severe in some people.
