'Female Viagra' Just One Way to Enhance a Woman's Sexuality

Nearly two decades after Viagra was approved to treat male erectile dysfunction, an FDA panel has recommended that Flibanserin, a drug that treats low female sex drive, be approved, according to a recent story on Fox News. While Viagra is the little blue pill. Flibanserin is a little pink pill that targets a woman’s dopamine and serotonin chemicals in the brain. While the new drug, should it be approved, address a problem that plagues one in three women, it will still not be a cure-all. That is because a woman’s sex drive is multifaceted and is affected by a number of factors. In fact, hormone levels are just one of several factors that can affect a woman’s sex drive. Most of the rest are psychological.

For instance, exercise and diet can affect sex drive. A woman who regularly exercises and eats sensibly is more likely to have enough energy to be in the mode. On the other hand, a woman who is sedentary and eats fattening, greasy, processed foods is likely to be not at all amorous.

How a woman feels about her relationships affects how much she wants to have sex. If she feels tension with her partner, she is less likely to want to have sex.

As with men, stress levels can affect a woman’s sex drive. There is nothing like a hard day at the office to make a woman uninterested in having sex.

The bottom line is that even if Flibanserin works every time, it may just mask the overall problem affecting a woman’s sexuality. It is a good idea to work on all the other factors,
