Is There a Female Equivalent to Viagra?

Newsweek reported on November 18th that there’s a new drug being tested to enhance the female libido. Flibanserin is the highly-anticipated, not-quite-FDA-approved pill that has recently been proven to boost the sex drive of women.

For years, females have watched those corny Viagra commercials and maybe some even pondered, “What if I could pop a pill and get in the mood?” Well, according to recent studies, interested females may have their day in the sun in the not-so-distant future. Developed by the German drug manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim, Flibanserin was first tested as an anti-depressant, but wasn’t effective in improving one’s mood. Instead, researchers realized that the drug helped to improve the female sex drive! Since the discovery, a trial study has been completed in which 2,000 middle-aged women who suffer from a sexual disorder took Flibanserin for six months. The studies came back showing results that Flibanserin improved the female libido in a significant number of cases.

The other side of the card is that there’s still an ongoing debate whether or not women even suffer from sexual dysfunction which is, of course, stirring controversy over the effectiveness and need for a drug like Flibanserin. The good news is that if you’re a gal who finds herself rarely in the mood, there may someday be a drug on the market to give you a little boost in the bedroom!
