Dr Oz: Osphena Viagra for Women & Other Options for Female Dryness

Dr Oz: Osphena – FDA Approved Libido Booster for Women

Good news for all women with libido problems. The FDA recently approved a brand new pill that many are called “pink Viagra,” or Viagra for women. This new pill promises to boost libido in women but could it be the answer for you?

The pill is called Osphena and it was created specifically for women who are post-menopausal and who experience pain during intercouse. One of Dr. Oz’s guests, Dr. Laura Berman, a relationship expert, said Osphena is a prescription medication designed to treat pain and dryness in women.

Osphena: Viagra for Women – Is it Right for You?

Dr. Jennifer Ashton said Osphena is an excellent medication for women experiencing pain during intercourse, also known as vaginal atrophy. She also believes anytime we can bring light to women and improving their love lives, than it is a good thing.

Dr Oz: Osphena Viagra for Women & Other Options for Female Dryness

Dr. Oz looked at the new FDA approved pill that is being called female Viagra, Osphena. He went over how it works and who should be using it.

Osphena for Pain During Intercourse

Dr. Laura Berman said the drug is not a magically pill for woman. Many women who are having problems with their libido will not benefit from this drug. She said for women, the organ that controls their love making is their brain. It controls how they feel about their partner, about their own self and about their body.

However, Osphena is an excellent pill for women who are experiencing the following:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain during intercourse

Differences Between Viagra and Osphena

Dr. Jennifer Ashton explained the difference between Viagra and Osphena.

Viagra works on the man’s parts. It increases blood flow to the lower region and it gets his body and mind in the mood for intercourse.

Women, however, are far more complicated. She explained Osphena is a targeted medication that strengthens the tissue surrounding the woman’s lower region. The drug does not have any other effects in any other part of the body. Those effects do not include side effects. Those are listed below.

Another big difference is the time when the drugs are taken. For men, they will take Viagra as they need it but women who take Osphena will have to take the pill every day because it takes more time to see and feel the results.

Osphena Side Effects – Hot Flashes, Blood Clots

Like Dr. Oz has always pointed out, there are side effects associated with every type of prescription drug and Osphena is no different. He said about seven percent of women experience adverse reactions when taking the drug.

Check out the different side effects below and use them to contrast the pros and cons of taking the drug. You want to know as much information about the drug as you can before you take any type of medication.

  • Hot flashes
  • Increase in UTIs
  • Discharge
  • Sweating
  • Increased clotting risk

Estrogen Cream & Coconut Oil – Alternative Options for Vaginal Dryness

Dr. Laura Berman and Dr. Jennifer Ashton both agreed there are a number of natural options to treat dryness instead of taking a pill.

Estrogen Cream: This prescription cream has been shown to combat dryness effectively.

Coconut Oil: Dr. Laura Berman said coconut oil is a natural lubricant without any unhealthy side effects.

After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Journalism and Anthropology, I managed a pizza place for a year, while freelancing for various newspapers in the area. Working every weekend in sauna like conditions, never being able to take a day off and being covered in flour is something I will not miss. I hope Recapo has air conditioning.
