Female Viagra: could this be what you’ve needed all along?

We all are familiar with men aging and becoming struck with erectile dysfunction or (ED), and how the pharmaceutical companies have come together and formulated medications that assist men with troubles gaining/maintaining an erection. It is well known that these medications are for men only, and are not to be taken by women or children for obvious reasons. However, it is noticed that not only men suffer in the bedroom as they age.

Women also are struck by a lower sex drive. It is also called (FSD), which stands for female sexual dysfunction. What women don’t realize is that they are suffering from low Libido. Libido simply means losing sex drive rather it be from psychological, biological, or social factors. Many people have questioned if this is just a way for pharmaceutical companies to weasel in and make billions of dollars after convincing women this is a medical condition.

Buy Female Viagra in Australia

It is common for women to give birth and afterwards having a decrease in sexual drive, only for it to increase after things settle down within their bodies and adjust to their new norm.

Since this has all been recent, there has been medications that were tried and failed. Viagra, testosterone patch, and Flibanserin, were all in trial but came with error. Flibanserin was rejected in 2010 and 2013, but since has been approved in 2015, which was recommended by the US medicines regulator’s expert panel. It was formulated in the US and is not yet available in Australia.

As we are aware, Australia even gained strict laws with Viagra for men.

Men are unable to legally purchase unless the obtain a prescription and have an assessment with their doctor. Even then it is advised to gain your prescription through a trusted, certified pharmacy. In Australia you are unable to purchase Viagra at shops, unlike you can in the United States. Online there are many website pharmacies claiming you don’t have to have a prescription for such medications. This has resulted in counterfeit medications that have wrong dosages and adverse effects, even some life threatening results.

In Australia it is against law to advertise drugs directly to consumers.

Instead these pharmaceutical companies spend their budget towards raising awareness of such conditions and how these medications are designed to treat them. These companies are allowed to target doctors and with advertisement promising a cure to these conditions. Addyi, known as the little pink pill or Flibanserin, is treatment for lack of sexual desire in women. Unlike Viagra for men taken only as needed, Addyi is taken by women nightly. Taking Addyi at night reduces the chances of dizziness, low blood pressure, and other side effects.

Clinical trials have been open and it was discovered that women had a thirty-seven percent increase in sexual desire when taking this particular medication.

It is said to cost and be just as effective as Viagra for men. However, Viagra for men works on the blood flow to the penis, and Addyi for women focuses on the mind and increases female desire.

So, even though you hear “female Viagra”, the medications work in different ways providing similar results. Even though it is currently just available in the US, it is hard to come by with only specialty pharmacies carrying the medication. Only Addyi certified pharmacies are allowed to authorize the script.
