New Female Viagra Cures Low Libido

May 24, 2010
A pill dubbed as female Viagra was found to be effective in improving woman's sex drive.

Flibanserin was initially developed as a drug for the treatment of depression, but clinical trials revealed surprising side effect. The drug increased sex drive and sexual satisfaction in women taking part in the trials.

The recent report from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists shows that women taking Flibanserin reported about 18 percent improvements in sex drive after 24 weeks of taking the drug.

The new is not FDA approved yet, but shows promise as new female Viagra, which may soon become available to every woman. Unlike the male Viagra that is known to increase blood supply to the genitals, the drug works by affecting the neurotransmitters in the central nervous system. Specialists say that the pill can become quite effective in treating low sexual drive, when it is caused by physical factors, but in other cases women may need couples therapy or sexual therapy for overcoming sexual difficulties.
