What is Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD)?

Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD) is a persistent or recurrent inability to attain, or to maintain until completion of the sexual activity, an adequate lubrication-swelling response of sexual excitement that causes marked distress or interpersonal difficulty.  Orgasm is not possible without arousal and lack of arousal commonly leads to a lack of desire because sexual activity is not enjoyable.


This disorder is estimated to negatively impact ~20% of US women and affects ~40% of US women at some point during their lives. Despite the high prevalence of FSAD and the potential impact impaired arousal has on other aspects of sexual function in women, to date there are no FDA-approved pharmacological treatments for FSAD.

The purpose of this clinical research study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication in improving symptoms of FSAD in pre-menopausal patients.
