A patch for women with low sex drive will be available from the UK's National Health Service beginning in April.
The Intrinsa patch - which is worn on the abdomen and delivers a low dose of testosterone - will be available only to women with early menopause who have had their ovaries removed during hysterectomy, BBC News reported.
Testosterone plays an important role in female sexual desire.
Trials involving more than 500 women who had hysterectomies found that the Intrinsa patch was associated with a 74% increase in satisfying sex, BBC News reported.
The patch is made by Proctor and Gamble. – (HealthDayNews)
