Q: 

No libido. How does this "viagra for women" work?

I am 49 years old and am in perimenopause. I have no libido to speak of, and haven't for quite some time. I'm hearing about the "pink pill" called the Viagra for women (the ladies of The View were talking about it yesterday). Can someone tell me how it works?

Hi, Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHer, and thanks for your question!

We have a lot of information on the "pink pill!" There is a lot of interest in it, as you would expect, from all kinds of women (and their partners!)

The new drug, which is being marketed as Lovegra and Femtrex, claims among other things that it will give women:
* higher sex drive
* multiple orgasms
* increased heart rate
* longer plateaus
* increased lubrication

It works by increasing blood flow to the female genitals, which relaxes the muscles and increases lubrication (Viagra for men increases the blood flow to their genital area).

EmpowHer has an entire page about the pink pill. You can find several articles on it here:
