Study shows ‘female Viagra’ works

Washington: A pill called Flibanserin can boost sex drive in women. It’s being called ‘female Viagra.’

A new paper from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists reports that after a 6-month treatment with the pill, women found improvement in their decreased sexual desire.

The FDA has not yet approved the drug, which was originally meant to be an anti depressant.

A survey conducted by a drug manufacturer, amongst 1,378 women who were suffering from a lack of sexual desire, revealed that the drug improved sex drive by 18 per cent, after a usage of 24 weeks.

Another study notched this number to four weeks.
Unlike the Viagra used by men, which increases bloody supply, this pill may affect a female’s mind and the neurotransmitters in the central nervous system, with minor side effects like dizziness, nausea, fatigue and insomnia.

For now Ashton suggests couples therapy and consulting a sexual therapist for these problems.

"You want to get at the root problem," CBS News quoted her as saying.

"If it’s something like depression or a medication side-effect, deal with those things and hopefully you’ll see an improvement in your sex life."
