Quote:In the trial combining flibanserin with alcohol consumption, three out of 47 women developed a serious side effect of fainting or low blood pressure requiring medical attention.
So no wine ladies.
Quote:As Lori Brotto, a psychologist and women’s sexual health researcher at University of British Columbia, says of women’s sexual dysfunction, it’s “a lot of science mixed with a lot of politics mixed with, some might even argue, hidden agendas, and it’s hard to sift through it all.”
Quote:Dr. Goldmeier, the British sexual health clinician, says flibanserin “probably showed some efficacy. Probably it’s actually safe.” The problem, he says, was “the placebo response rate is so high…You have problems showing it was better than the placebo.”
Considering you have to take it every day and the placebo success rate is high...doesn't this show it's women's programming to be broken sexually, or that since they are incorporating a "fix" into their life, that they are actually putting it as a priority now? I believe they call it 'mindfulness'.
Fixing the myths...
Quote:One of the earliest controlled studies, in 2001, found CBT to be effective at decreasing the symptoms of low desire disorder in women. Before treatment, about 60% of the women in the study reported believing each of the following sexual myths: men are always ready to have sex, and sex shouldn’t be planned. Roughly a third of the women believed each of these three sexual myths: sex should always end in orgasm, couples shouldn’t have too much or too little sex, and you can’t have sex if a man doesn’t have an erection.
If in doubt, make a pill.
