The Viagra For Women Is… Placebo?

| Filed under: DrugsSex

Libido Placebo

People have been trying to make a vigra for women for quite some time. BioSante Pharmaceuticals thought they were on the right path by coming up with LibiGel: a treatment that helps "hypoactive sexual desire disorder in postmenopausal women."

The basics of it is that it's a testosterone gel.

The only problem is that during trials, pretty much the same amount of women who used the placebo instead of the gel had just as much increase in their libidos! The increases, as it turns out, were pretty substantial — even with the fake drug.

There could be a number reasons for this. One could be that the women in the trial had nowhere to go but up, but we argue they could have just as easily stayed the same. The other, more likely reason, is that even the idea of having the drug altered their state of mind, which controls the libido.

This might not bode well for LibiGel, but it does mean that there could be non-chemical ways to help the ladies out!
