For what it's worth
It's called Intrinsa, a name I expect to see inflicted upon a handful of poor, defenseless baby girls a couple of years from now, and it's a testosterone patch for women that, says manufacturer Procter & Gamble, improves sexual desire and satisfaction in women whose ovaries had been removed.
Geez. I don't have ovaries, for obvious reasons, and my libido is basically shot to hell. Hmmm.... True Blue Deb says that she's not familiar with the technical term "female sexual dysfunction," but:
I have lived through a period of Zero Desire. Getting off the Paxil straightened that right up though.
I suppose I could quit taking Paxil, but that would require me to start taking Paxil.
Inasmuch as I don't have a partner to disappoint, though, this is probably less of an issue than it could be.
