LibiGel reviews – what are side effects of LibiGel and does it work?
Many women experience sexual dysfunction, specifically Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD) or loss of interest in sex. In fact, HSDD is thought to affect at least one third of women in the United States. One major cause of HSDD is menopause, either natural or forced.
Testosterone is a hormone normally associated with males, but it is also present, in much smaller amounts, in females. One of its many functions is to create sexual desire. When a woman enters menopause, her ovaries stop producing testosterone, so her desire for sex decreases.
It has long been theorized that if you increase a woman’s testosterone levels, you increase her desire. The trouble is, messing with hormones is a tricky business, and needs to be done in a way that is both effective and safe. BioSante Pharmaceuticals is attempting to do just that with their new product, LibiGel.
LibiGel delivers a low dose of testosterone through a proprietary cream applied to your upper arm once per day. It transmits the hormone steadily throughout the day, maintaining a level of testosterone in your body that is compatible with normal range sexual desire.
The promise is that over time, the increase in testosterone will translate into an increase in libido. Women who use LibiGel will find a return of sexual desire, which in turn will lead to greater frequency and pleasure of sexual encounters.
Currently, LibiGel is not available for purchase. It is in the midst of clinical trials for approval by the FDA. During the most recent phase of testing, it is continued to be found safe, but its effectiveness has been called into question. It is uncertain if BioSante will have to adjust its formula at this point and retest.
If and when LibiGel is approved, it will be the only testosterone replacement therapy made specifically for women in the United States. While it is impossible to know exactly how much BioSante will charge for LibiGel, it is believed that the price range will be between $8 and $11 per day.
