No evidence hormone, Viagra treatments boost female sexual desire: researcher

Women are being prescribed testosterone and Viagra when there is no evidence either will improve their sex lives, says a UBC researcher specializing in sexual health.
Lori Brotto, a psychologist and professor in the department of obstetrics and gynecology, said that while there are no treatments approved by Health Canada for female sexual dysfunction, doctors are turning to “off-label” use of drugs approved for other conditions.
Brotto is one of three B.C. scientists on a panel discussing the growing medicalization of women’s sexuality at UBC’s Chan Centre Thursday night. The event will include a 2009 documentary called Orgasm Inc.
