Female Viagra

An anti-depressant pill is being hailed as the “female Viagra” after the drug was proven to boost women’s flagging sexual drives. “Women who took the drug during the six-month trial reported more satisfying sexual encounters and higher libidos than those who were given a placebo. Doctors involved in the study said the drug may prove to be an effective treatment for low libido, a problem they estimate affects between 9% and 26% of women, depending on their age and whether they have been through the menopause. The drug has proved controversial among sex researchers. Some argue pharmaceutical companies are exaggerating the number of women affected by low libido to expand their market, and are pushing a pill that will not deal with psychological issues that might put someone off sex, such as poor body image or stress.”
