Female Viagra is often a term used to refer to medicines or products that treat sexual problems in women. There are currently two products that have been referred to as the female Viagra, called Flibanserin (Addyi) and Lady Era. Both are associated with treating FSD but they work in very different ways. However, neither have been sufficiently proven and they are not available to buy in the UK.
The female Viagra pill called Lady Era contains sildenafil citrate, the active ingredient found in male Viagra. Lady Era is thought to increase blood flow to a woman’s genitals, with the aim of improving sexual arousal. There is also a very different treatment available in the US, called Flibanserin (brand name Addyi). Flibanserin is thought to work by increasing dopamine (feel good hormone), with the aim of boosting sexual desire
