There’s a new drug coming that just might boost a woman’s sexual desire

News Update
from Dr. Andrew D. Atwood, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

This material is presented for educational and informational purposes only. No other claims are made. Always consult your health care professional for specific recommendations.

Many women, and couples, that suffer a sexless marriage may eventually find some help in a new drug that is nearing production. The drug is called PT-141 and research has indicated that it seems to turn on girl rats. Palatin Technologies of Cranbury, N.J., have concluded tests on rats only, not on human beings. But, as usual, rats go first when it comes to testing new drugs!

And yes, PT-141, which mimics a pituitary hormone, did make female rats more seductive. Go figure. It is assumed that if female rats have increased sexual desire, so will women. Researches reported that the drugged female rats behaved in ways intended to attract male rat attention. They even assumed postures that invited sexual activity. So, if PT-141 helps with sex problems with rats, why not humans?

Apparently, Palatin is currently conducting tests on women, but they wont be complete for some time. I’m tracking the progress of PT-141 and will publish updates as they are produced by the researchers and manufacturers.

Also, PT-141 is being tested for its effectiveness with males. It seems to improve their erectile response, but in higher doses does lead to nausea in some men.

If PT-141 becomes commercially available it will be the first medication produces specifically to enhance a woman’s sexual desire.

That could be huge for couples who are stuck in a sexless marriage.

But remember what we found with Viagra! Just because the biology works, doesn’t necessarily mean the mind, psyche, and spirit will work. Plenty of couples are able to have sex with Viagra, but not all are willing. It is naïve to think that a drug will fix all problems.

PT-141 could be of tremendous help, however, and it bears watching.

Best wishes,
Dr. Atwood
