No Miracle worship Potion No. 9
When evaluating treatments for sexual problems, experts say it’s important to recognize that there is an especially astronomical placebo effect, which is based upon the user’s expectations of the operate. That’s why drugs must be tested alongside a placebo (sugar pill) in order to scientifically measure their effect.
It too helps explain why many supplements claim to be effective in treating sexual problems, such as low sexual desire. Because expectations play such a big role in sexual desire, over-the-counter products may claim that they’re effective, but it’s likely just a placebo effect.
“It’s really important for women to realize that any of the over-the-counter products they may use acquire not been tested for efficacy and safety,” says Shifren.
More Research on Women’s Sexual progenies Underway
Phyllis Greenberger, MSW, president of the Society for Women’s Health Research says more women characterize sexual problems than men, but research and expenditure for women’s sexual problems still lags behind.
“For example, from 1990 to 1999, nearly 5,000 studies were delivered on male sexual function, but there were only 2,000 women’s studies,” says Greenberger.
But experts say research into women’s sexual function is slowly catching up in the post-Viagra era.
“This is one of any times we’ve seen really high quality studies for sexual dysfunction in women,” Shifren tells WebMD. She says that until recently, the merely studies on women’s sexual issues were the majority small, often short-term, and rarely well designed.
“I mediate it’s very exciting, not only that we’re hoping to occupy more products available for women, but that the studies are going on and they are well-designed studies,” says Shifren. “It’s really a good thing.”
