Fox5 San Diego Interviews Doctor Goldstein
Dr. Goldstein recently sat down to talk with Fox5 San Diego about sexual
medicine options for women. He discussed the new “Pink Pill”
and some of the other options available to women seeking to improve sexual health.
The Pink Pill is FDA-approved for pre-menopausal women who are frustrated
by their decreased sexual interest and looking for improvement. Instead
of it being a chore, duty, or obligation, sex can become an enjoyable
experience again. Women with low sex drive can benefit by having the excitation
in their brain increased and inhibition in their brain decreased in order
to boost their sex drive. This is a daily pill designed to restore sexual
desire to the woman’s previous “normal.”
There are other new drugs currently being researched. One is an injection—similar
to insulin for diabetes—that is used by women with low sexual interest
before sexual activity. Others are pills that are taken a few hours before
Sexual health can have an effect on all areas of your life, from your intimate
relationships to your self-confidence to your physical health. With new
advancements in sexual medicine, women can get access to helpful resources,
support, and medications designed to help them enjoy optimal sexual health.
