Male Viagra treats erectile dysfunction by increasing blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulation. While the female viagra aims to improve libido and sexual functions by increasing the level of testosterone in the blood.

There are other drugs tagged as "female viagra" such as Intrinsa or LibiGel which contain Progesterone also aiming to improve libido and enhance sexual functions.

Male Viagra generally have no much effect on sexual functions of the women though there are reports of having enhanced function. In an older woman who had been postmenopausal and is not on hormonal replacement therapy, male viagra won't be of any benefit. Side effects are possible though.
