VIDEO: Introducing Female Viagra – Flibanserin

If you think women are confusing then wait until you meet ‘Flibanserin’ aka Female Viagra.     Flibanserin is the first FDA drug that has been approved to treat low libido in women.     However, the name is a bit of a misnomer as Flibanserin isn’t really Viagra.   At least, not in the traditional sense.   Dubbed the Holy Grail of Big Pharma, Flibanserin is likened to the male prescription medication Viagra because it treats low desire, yet the drugs operate entirely different.

Male Viagra is a vasodilator and increases blood flow to the penis by dilating the veins to improve the thickness during arousal.     It does not improve libido, only the ability to get and maintain erections.     If a man’s libido has been affected due to depression caused by impotence then Viagra may be said to increase libido, but it is not a direct influence of the drug.    Male Viagra carries with it stern health warnings for the risk of stroke and heart attack.

Female Viagra on the other hand treats Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD).     If you have heard people say that women’s lack of libido is ‘all in their head,’ they may be onto something.     HSDD is thought to affect anywhere between 5-9 million U.S. women.     This depression suppresses the instinct to reproduce in otherwise healthy women.

Unlike men, who can experience a physical inability to have sex, women have an emotional response and as such, researchers have struggled to find a drug that can effectively combat low libido in women, but it appears those days may be over.

Does Female Viagra Really Work?

From the women who want to have a healthy and frequent sex life, to the people who love them, it seems the question on everyone’s lips is does Female Viagra work?  And, more importantly, is it safe?

Lobbying group, Even the Score, which has campaigned for treatment of women’s sexual health, accused the FDA of gender bias, highlighting the numerous products available for treating sexual dysfunction in men.   Other minority groups believe that the FDA is using this gender bias to put an otherwise unwarranted product on the shelves.   However, like most new drugs, only time will tell what the true side effects, if any, will be.

“Women’s sexuality is complicated.  It’s not a matter of just taking that pill, by the way, and then all of a sudden the lights go on,” Judy Kuriansky, a clinical psychologist and certified sex therapist.

The fact that an FDA panel of experts backs Female Viagra should build confidence in the consumer.   If your partner suffers from low desire and HSDD, then Flibanserin could be the answer you are both looking for.   Taken daily, Flibanserin is expected to improve women’s libido and increase sexual desire.   Due to its controversial use, it has undergone extensive testing, but that doesn’t mean it will be without risk.

“The unmet need seems to be so strong that even for a drug with rather modest benefit, I think approving the product with strong limitations seems to be the right step at this point,” said Tobias Gerhard, a committee member and expert on drug safety at Rutgers University in New Jersey.
