Female Viagra

New research might be bringing science a bit closer to a female version of Viagra.

British scientists say they have learned more about how new treatments might be developed to help women with sexual arousal disorder.

In animal tests, a research team found that electrical stimulation of the pelvic nerve increases blood flow to the genitalia. This effect was enhanced if the animals were given an experimental drug. Blood flow to the area is critical for arousal.

The researchers say now that they are beginning to establish the pathways involved, they may be able to find ways of helping women who would like to overcome female sexual arousal disorder.

Women with this problem find arousal difficult and their organs don’t respond to stimulation. The study authors say the condition affects up to 40 percent of women of all ages. Bear in mind, they are working for Pfizer, the company that makes Viagra.
