A woman has given birth to a baby thanks to men's sex-drive booster Viagra.
What is strange is that the Viagra wasn't given to the husband but to the wife!
Kerry Horan, 34, suffered a miscarriage and three rounds of failed IVF since her marriage in 2002 to husband David.
Specialist doctors scanned her womb and noticed that the blood flow around it was weak and that its lining wasn't thick enough for an embryo to be implanted properly. Dr George Ndukwe decided to experiment with the impotence drug Viagra because it is known to be able to boost blood flow.
After nine days of taking Viagra every day doctors gave Kerry Horan another scan which showed that the wall of her womb was thick enough for doctors to implant embryos.
Using Viagra or any other erectile dysfunction drug to boost female fertility without being constantly monitored by doctors is not advised. Erectile dysfunction medication is designed for use by men only and women are not allowed to buy it.
The treatment which was done at the CARE Nottingham fertility clinic is pretty revolutionary and obviously needs more research done into it. At the moment it is still an experimental treatment but it highlights that there are many other uses for Viagra other than purely as an erectile dysfunction medication.
In the future it is likely that all three erectile dysfunction drugs Viagra, Cialis and Levitra will be used to treat a whole range of different blood flow problems but more research needs to be done to ensure that they are safe for these applications.
Horan said: "I was shocked when they mentioned it, but willing to try anything. Minutes after taking the high dose of Viagra, I don't feel pleasant and my face has gone red."
She fell pregnant two weeks later and gave birth to daughter Grace, weighing 6lb 11oz, in December.
Horan said: "When we saw the baby's heartbeat on a scan we couldn't stop crying. When I finally held Grace it was the most emotional experience. Thanks to Viagra I'm a mother at last!"
