How the Controversial 'Female Viagra' Made a Comeback

“Sex drive problems are most often due to a discrepancy with the partner, not a truly low drive, so couples therapy — like behavioral couples therapy — can be helpful. The challenge is, of course, everyone wants a shortcut,” Prause said.

Research indicates that up to 43 percent of women have a low sexual desire worldwide, however, only 10 percent suffer from HSDD, a prerequisite for Addyi.
