Female viagra being trialled to help drive libido

By Alex Schrute

A new nasal spray containing female viagra is being trialled by women in Australia in the hopes of improving sex drive.

More and more women are complaining about a lack of sex drive and how this is affecting many spheres of their lives. Viagra for men has been available for more than 20 years but women's issues concerning libido have often been reduced to simply being overworked or stressed with home life.

A revolutionary nasal spray

The rest of the world should take note because in Sydney, Australia a new nasal spray is being trialled with the aim to increase sex drive in women. As it stands, there is no available treatment for women of child-bearing age to help spike up a low sex drive.

The repercussions of dissatisfaction in one's own sexual health can be catastrophic for relationships, personal self-esteem and overall well-being.

Dr. Susan David, Director of the Women's Health Research Program and Professor at Monash University, is pioneering for a much-needed sexual revolution. She believes that:

When women go to their doctor and they say they've lost interest in sex and it's affecting them and their relationship and their wellbeing, they're often too quickly dismissed. They are told it's because they're working and they've got kids and they've got stress and not sleeping.

A sexual dysfunction affecting women of all ages

A molecule called BP101 is the peptide that is currently being tested on women to increase their libido. Dr. David explains:

This molecule acts within the central brain pathways, particularly what we call the GABA pathway that influences sexual behaviour. The impact on their psychological wellbeing is as severe as having a chronic condition like type 2 diabetes or severe lower back pain.

Research provided by Monash University revealed that about 10% of Australian women between the ages of 18-39 have dealt with low sexual desire at one point in time in their lives, causing them a great deal of distress. And these statistics only get worse with age as one in three women aged 40 to 65 experience sexual dysfunction.
