New med for the ladies doesn’t deliver on libido promise

No matter how long you’ve been married, the feeling never goes away.

After all these decades, one quick glance from across the room is all it takes to make you both weak in the knees…just like when you first met.

And that’s what leads to one of the biggest frustrations of aging: Because while you certainly FEEL the same way, you might not have the ability to SHOW it in the bedroom.

So ladies, I understand the temptation to give in and ask your doc for some by Addyi, the new sex med that’s been dubbed the female answer to the “little blue pill” by the clueless media.

But the latest research exposes the ugly truth about this drug: It’s a huge scam!

Some drugs are bad because they don’t work very well. Others might work…but with sickening side effects.

Addyi kills two birds with one pill, because the new review of the research on this drug finds that it not only isn’t very effective, but comes with stomach-turning side effects that can ruin any chance of ever being “in the mood.”

The drug is supposed to boost the libido, but don’t expect it to transform your life into something out of a paperback romance.

On average, Addyi increases the number of satisfying sexual encounters per month by 0.5. That’s right… one extra night of romance every two months.

And if that number looks bad, wait ‘til you see the next one: On a five-point scale measuring sexual desire, the drug increases scores by an average of 0.3 points.

You’re much more likely to suffer from the drug’s notorious side effects such as nausea, dizziness, and fatigue than enjoy some extra time in the bedroom with your husband.

What’s so amazing about this is that there’s a real answer out there and most doctors are completely ignoring it. And even if they do suggest it, many women won’t even consider it.

But ladies, you have nothing to fear when it comes to testosterone.

It’s often called the “male hormone” because men need a lot more of it than women do. But just as men need a little estrogen, women also need a little testosterone.

When you aren’t getting the low levels you need, you could suffer problems with both desire and ability… and believe it or not, that’s not even the biggest issue here.

Low testosterone could increase your risk of heart problems!

Fortunately, there are some easy ways to boost your levels naturally without turning to hormone therapy.

Fenugreek extract – a supplement you may have used to increase milk back when you were a nursing mother – can increase both estradiol and free testosterone, leading to more desire and arousal, according to a placebo-controlled study.
