The Pink Pill: Viagra For The Female Brain

Katie Couric on Yahoo News brings some light to chronically low sexual desire, called HSDD (Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder) which is a real problem for many women.

“We know there is this area of the limbic system that is associated with the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine that is functioning differently in the women with HSDD,” says Leah Millheiser, MD, director of the Female Sexual Medicine Program at Stanford School of Medicine.

Sprout Pharmaceuticals is resubmitting its drug Flibanserin, otherwise known as the “little pink pill,” to the FDA for approval. If approved, it would be the first of its kind to treat women with HSDD (Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder.)

“Flibanserin is a novel, non-hormonal pill to treat hypoactive sexual desire disorder in premenopausal women,” says Sprout CEO Cindy Whitehead.

  1. I was so very happy to see that the FDA finally approved a pill to help women with desire issues. Unfortunately, it I still not available yet, as per my doctor. I believe she has me on speed dial as soon as the pill is ready to be prescribed to patients. Listening to the woman on TV address the FDA panel regarding what here symptoms had been and how this pill has been a long time coming for us really hit home. I am hopeful that this pill will help me to want to engage with my husband in the bedroom and not wait until he falls asleep and then slither into bed so that I do not wake him. I try to explain to him that I simply do not have a desire for sex anymore but that I really want to want to have sex but with menopause my desire has gone. It’s not an easy think for your husband to hear, but I felt it was something we needed to talk about because it was always the ‘elephant’ in the room. As a man, it’s hard for him to understand and he takes it very personally. When it’s not personal at all. So, I am excited that this pill is coming on the market and can’t wait to give it a try.

    1. Ellie, I am happy that we finally will have a pink pill! We need to have more options for women! However, desire is one thing….but if you are having painful sex that is caused by a dry vagina….you will still need to find the right combination of a lubricant (used during sex) and a moisturizer (used daily to help keep the walls of the vagina moist and supple) to help you with this issue. If sex hurts, it is not enjoyable and you still won’t want to have it. Did the coconut oil help at all?
